Roli Sweeney, new Moorefield manager

He retired officially, through injury, just last Friday, but now Moorefield have this evening announced Ronan Sweeney as their new manager taking over from Ross Glavin who led the club to two SFC's and a Leinster Club, as their new manager.

While  Glavin has moved on to be part of Jack O'Connor's Kildare management team, Roli Sweeney has taken over, not unexpectedly it has to be said, as the new Moorefield manager.
