Knockmore native Ray Dempsey has today stepped down from his role as manager of the Limerick Senior Football team.

Dempsey’s spell in charge of the Shannonsiders was a short one lasting just five games of the Allianz National Football League Division 2 after he took over on a two-year deal from Billy Lee late last year. Limerick currently sits bottom in Division 2 with just one point following their opening five games.

He had been previously in the running to replace James Horan as Mayo manager and was pipped to the post by Kevin McStay. He guided Knockmore to two Mayo senior football titles and had previously managed Mayo’s minors and Under 21s.

It has been reported in the Irish Independent that Dempsey’s exit comes after some player unrest over preparation which culminated with a vote and Dempsey informing the squad of his intentions last night.

The Limerick County Board released a statement this afternoon confirming that Mark Fitzgerald, a selector under Dempsey, has been appointed as the new Limerick football manager.
