Kevin Sammon has been appointed to a two-year term as Roscommon hurling manager

Kevin Sammon has been ratified as Roscommon’s new senior hurling manager on a two-year term.

The Clare native succeeds Seamus Qualter in the role after the latter stepped down following the team’s Nickey Rackard Cup campaign, having steered them to the Allianz League Division 3A title earlier in the year.

Sammon’s past club experience has saw him managing Broadford and O’Callaghan Mills, leading the latter to its first ever Junior A crown.

Speaking after his ratification last night (Thursday), he said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to fill the role of Roscommon senior hurling manager for the 23/24 season. My backroom team consists of Steve Cusack (Newmarket on Fergus), Tommy Moloney (Limerick) and Kevin McNamara (Kilmaley).

“I will finalise my management team in the coming days. I am really looking forward to working with the players, management team, clubs and County Board for the coming season. I would like to wish Four Roads and Athleague the very best in Sunday’s Senior Hurling Final.”

Roscommon GAA Hurling Chairperson, Christy McDermott said: “I am delighted with the appointment of Kevin and Roscommon GAA look forward to working with him and his backroom team and I hope this management team and the players can move Roscommon hurling on to great things.”
