Wee County to consult ex-players over on-the-field woes

Louth GAA will form a committee comprising former players to get to the root of their frustrating lack of football success.

The Wee County endured another disappointing season at all levels in 2019 and new County Board chairman Peter Fitzpatrick – himself a former Louth footballer and manager – wants to get to the bottom of the enduring problem:

“I’ve contacted about ten ex-intercounty players from Louth to form a committee and we’re then going to look at all aspects of our intercounty football teams, from the seniors to junior, U20, minor, etc.,” he reveals in The Dundalk Democrat.

“For the last number of years Louth has been very unsuccessful on the pitch. People think that it’s maybe due to money, but I’m trying to get experience together and compare what it was like when they were playing to now. There has to be some kind of a format to improve our state, because we just can’t carry on the way we’re going.”
