Former Mayo Ladies Football manager, Frank Browne, has been named as the new Dublin senior camogie boss.
The Wexford native was in charge of the Mayo team for three years and guided them to the All Ireland final last year where they were beaten by Dublin. He was previously manager of the county’s hurling team.
Browne takes over from five-time All Ireland winner, David Herity, who stepped down from the role in September and has since taken over as the new Kildare hurling manager.

The former Kilkenny goalkeeper was widely praised for his role in the progression of Dublin camogie. Last year, he led the county to their first All Ireland semi-final since 1990.
However, they suffered a disappointing end to their season this year when they were beaten comprehensively by Galway at the quarter-final stage.
Their goalkeeper, Faye McCarthy, lauded praise on Herity, saying he raised the standard of camogie in Dublin.
“He raised our own standards for ourselves first and with the fitness trainers, he really brought us on in terms of that. Yeah, a huge amount. I think we really made a name for ourselves in camogie over the last few years and he just brought us on so much.”
“We’ll miss him, definitely.”
Dublin camogie have released a statement wishing Browne well in his new role.
“The Dublin Camogie Board are delighted to announce the appointment of Frank Browne as the new Senior Camogie Manager for 2019. Frank brings with him a proven track record with senior Inter County squads in both Hurling & Ladies Football.”
He managed the Mayo Senior Ladies football team and took them to an All Ireland Final in 2017. In addition he has also managed the Mayo Senior Hurling team. He has also worked with the Roscommon Senior Hurling team as Director of Fitness & Coaching.”
“We wish Frank every success in his new role with our Senior Camogie team. Currently, Frank is putting to-gether his Selectors and a full list will be released once finalised.”
