Ireland’s Davis Cup captain Garry Cahill has decided to step down with immediate effect, after a successful four year term in charge of the team. He will continue in his role as Performance Director of Tennis Ireland, a position he has held since 2004.

“I am very proud of my time as Irish Davis Cup Captain. I would like to thank the players and the Board of Tennis Ireland for their support during the four year period I was in charge,” said Cahill.

Ireland faces Belarus in March in their Euro-Africa Group ll tier of the competition. It is a division of the competition several tiers below the World Group level at the top.

“I believe the team have the ability to beat Belarus in March and I wish everyone involved the very best of luck in their preparations for that tie”.

Cahill will continue in the BNP Paribas National Tennis Academy at DCU in a full-time role.

Tennis Ireland intends to appoint a successor to Cahill within the next two weeks so as to ensure an adequate period of preparation for the March 2015 home tie against Belarus.
