It’s official, folks – the County Board confirmed a few minutes ago that Stephen Rochford has this evening been formally ratified by the County Board as the new Mayo manager. Stephen has been appointed to the position for an initial three-year term, to be reviewed annually.
Stephen’s management team has also been confirmed: Tony McEntee and Donie Buckley will both act as selector/coach, Sean Carey as selector, Barry Solan as Head of S&C, Dr Sean Moffat as Head of Medical, Maurice Horan in the stats/video analysis role, Caroline Brosnihan as Dietician and Eoin Rochford as the Logistics man.
Although we all knew this news was coming it still feels like a hugely significant moment for the county that it has at last been confirmed. Best of luck to Stephen and his management team as they take charge of guiding all the hopes and dreams of Mayo followers everywhere.
