The Waterford County Camogie board, like their hurling coutnerparts, are on the lookout for a new senior manager after Donal O’Rourke stepped down last night after two seasons in charge.
“It was an honour to have managed my county,” O’Rourke told WLR Sport last night. “I’d like to thank Waterford camogie and the Waterford public for their support over the last two seasons.” He added that this was the best group of players he has been involved with.
In his two years in charge he brought the team to back to back All-Ireland quarter-finals. His final game in charge was this year’s quarter-final defeat to eventual All-Ireland champions, Galway in Thurles.
O’Rourke is expected to take up a coaching role with Erins Own in Cork next season. “It’s a massive club with massive plans over the next twelve months.”
