SEAN FLEMING has stepped down as Wicklow camogie manager following two seasons at the helm.
The Waterford-native took charge of the team in 2021, and guided them to the Nancy Murray and Division Four league finals in 2022 – a first for the county in both – while they also won the Leinster Junior title last season.
His last game was that Nancy Murray final, this past weekend, which they narrowly lost 3-13 to 3-12 against Tyrone.
In a statement, Wicklow Camogie said:
“Coming in when he did, Sean has dealt professionally with the many challenges he faced – not least of which was a worldwide pandemic and we have no doubt that he leaves Wicklow County Adult Camogie in a much stronger place than he found it.
“During his tenure, All-Ireland/Leinster Club and Colleges’ titles came to Wicklow – a wonderful achievement for Knockananna Camogie Club and Colaiste Bhride Carnew, while the Wicklow Minors also played their way to All-Ireland and Leinster titles.
“With all playing seasons and panels overlapping, Sean also found himself navigating this particularly positive rollercoaster early in the season.
“With his experience and vast knowledge of Camogie, he has introduced our players to the demands of the modern inter-county game and set us on a particular path which now presents our young players with a vision for their future.
“Thank you Sean – we wish you all that’s good for your future and we know you will continue to keep an eye on all things Wicklow Camogie from a distance!”
