Seán Boylan has left his role as Meath’s director of football.
The man who won four All-Ireland Senior Football titles as manager of his native county was appointed to the directorial position in September – on the same night that Monaghan man Séamus McEnaney was ratified to manage Meath for a second season.
The 53 year-old Boylan has however confirmed this week that he was stepping down because “it was not working out.” The Dunboyne man refused to elaborate on the exact reasons for his standing down from the role, but did acknowledge that the Meath County Board had been informed “some weeks ago.”
It is thought that the Irish 2006 International Rules coach was frustrated by his “plans and suggestions neither being implemented or discussed.” Boylan will step down from his role with immediate effect.
Meath have won two and lost four of their six National League outings this year and need to avoid defeat against Louth at Páirc Tailteann this weekend to be sure of avoiding relegation from Division 2.
