Michael Kearney appointed Ireland’s new team manager

IRELAND have appointed Michael Kearney as their new team manager.

Kearney succeeds Paul McNaughton, who stepped down after last year's World Cup, after filling the same role with Ireland Under-20s since 2009.

"My focus now is to get up to speed as soon as possible and give whatever support is necessary to the coaching team," said Kearney.
