Shane Keegan says the opportunity to return to management with Cobh Ramblers was ‘too good to turn down.’

The First Division club this morning announced Keegan as their new boss - filling the void left by the departure of Darren Murphy who exited after disappointing results left Cobh sitting second from bottom.

It marks a return to front line management for Keegan who had recently taken up a post with the Treaty United academy.

However the former Wexford and Galway United boss - who also had a spell as first team manager in Dundalk in the chaos of 2020 and 2021 without actually being responsible for team decisions - had made no secret of his desire to land a senior job again.

Keegan has signed a deal that will keep him in charge until the end of the 2023 season.
