Galway have called time on the reign of Tomas O’Flatharta after the county board decided not to grant him another year in his term.
The Kerry native, who is he in first season in charge has overseen a poor year for the tribesmen with relegation to Division Two a precursor to a disappointing Connacht semi-final defeat to Mayo and a qualifier loss to Meath.
Ó Flatharta, who succeeded Joe Kernan, had been given a three-year term by the county board last October with an annual review.
A statement released by the board read: “Club delegate’s last night ratified a decision made by the Football Board executive on Tuesday evening not to grant another year to the present senior football management team, it followed an end year review by the selection committee and the manager. The clubs will now be circulated with nomination papers for the election of a new manager in the coming weeks.”
