Aaron Callaghan was last night dismissed by Bohemians with the club’s board deciding that action was necessary after a run of four draws and seven defeats in the club’s last 11 league games. His assistant, Owen Heary, takes over in a caretaker capacity.

The Dubliners are now just one point clear of neighbours Shelbourne at the foot of the table but lack anything like the momentum of their rivals who have started to pick up results since changing manager themselves a few weeks back.

“The club has reached this stage with much regret,” said Bohemian president Matt Devaney in a statement issued by the club last night.

“Aaron has made a great contribution . . . but following a run of disappointing results it was clear some change was needed. We are looking for an injection of new ideas and new urgency.”
