Meath LGFA has expressed its gratitude to departing coach Paul Garrigan.

Garrigan confirmed last week that he was stepping away from Eamonn Murray’s management team in the wake of the Royals’ second consecutive All-Ireland SFC success.

This morning (Tuesday) saw Meath LGFA thanking the Oldcastle man, who relocated to Baltinglass and currently serves as a Games Development Officer with Wicklow and Leinster GAA.

“Meath LGFA would like to say many thanks to outgoing head coach, and one of the masterminds behind our meteoric rise through the ranks of our sport since 2017,” the statement read.

“Paul Garrigan came on board with manager Eamonn Murray, bringing Paddy Dowling and Shane Wall along with him. It was this quartet, with FLO Michelle Grimes, that started a journey that would lead to seven titles in six seasons: 2017 – Leinster Intermediate, 2019 – National League Div 3, 2020 – All-Ireland Intermediate, 2021 – National League Div 2 and All Ireland Senior, 2022 – National League Div 1 and All-Ireland Senior.

“As we look back on Paul’s time with us as head coach, our achievements would not have been possible without his dedication and commitment to Meath LGFA.

“During Paul’s tenure, we have seen enormous growth in the game in the county, and he’s been integral to the important advances we have made as an organisation.

“Go raibh míle maith agat Paul.”
