Former Kildare goalkeeper Shane McCormack has joined the Armagh ladies management team as a coach for the upcoming 2021 season.
The Allenwood man will join Ronan Murphy’s management team as the Orchard County attempt to improve on last year’s run to the All-Ireland semi-final. He will replace the outgoing Tommy Stevenson.
McCormack, who is a also a former manager of both the Kildare LGFA u21s and the Wexford LGFA Senior Footballers, is added to Murphy’s backroom team along with former Armagh footballer Meabh Moriarty.
McCormack and Moriarty will join a backroom team already containing Ruairi Grimes (S&C), Shane Bannon (coach), Seán King (statistics), Sinéad Kerr (liaison officer) and Moya O’Gorman.
Meanwhile, Armagh ladies have launched a February Fitness fundraiser that also aims to raise funds for the Friends of the Cancer Centre.
Sponsored by McShane Packaging, entrants are asked to rack up 100km through running, walking or cycling in February.
Adults can enter for £20, u-16s £15 while families can enter for £50. Spot prizes will also be on offer throughout the month.
It is hoped funds will also be raised to help with the development of McKeever Park in Killean, the first designated ladies football training facility in Ireland.
