Glencolmcille man Gerry McGill has been named as the new manager of the Carlow senior ladies team.

McGill takes over from Bart Gilmartin, who had two years in charge of Carlow.

Carlow guided Dublin to their first All-Ireland title in 2010.

He took Tipperary to an All-Ireland intermediate semi-final in 2016 and was involved with Tipperary men’s teams at senior at U21 levels.

“McGill brings with him a wealth of coaching and managerial experience acquired at all levels in both men’s and ladies codes of the game,” a Carlow statement said.

“Aside from his involvement in the Dublin and Tipperary Ladies he has also worked with the Tipperary Senior men’s football team as both a selector and a coach.

“His own personal sporting career as a senior inter-county football with his native Donegal and more recently with current senior Carlow football champions Eire Og puts him in the ideal position to assume the challenge of leading the Carlow ladies to future success.”

McGill has recruited Jim Kilty who is a well-known sports coach at national level having coached at two Olympic Games.

He has worked with Leinster and UCD rugby teams and Mayo, Tipperary and Wexford football and hurling teams.
