Former Galway United manager Shane Keegan is set for a move into hurling management.
Laois Today are reporting that the current member of the Dundalk FC backroom team will take charge of the 2019 county senior champions Rathdowney Errill for the new campaign.
The Rathdowney native was ratified as the club’s new manager over the weekend.
Keegan has also had stints in charge of Wexford Youths in the League of Ireland in the past, but he is a highly regarded GAA coach who had been linked to the Meath hurling role at one stage.
Rathdowney Errill were beaten in the semi final of the 2020 Laois SHC, which is yet to be completed.
