Armagh Camogie Appoint New Manager

Mattie Lennon has been ratified as the new Armagh Camogie manager and will take over the reigns for the 2021 season.

The Orchard County look to defend the Premier Junior All-Ireland title that they captured last year.

Lennon, who will also manage the Derrynoose senior hurlers, takes the job with a huge amount of experience on his CV.

He’s no stranger to the inter-county scene, having spent the last six seasons in charge of the Tyrone hurlers.

The Derrynoose native has also managd the Armagh and Monaghan hurlers as well as the Armagh under 21 footballers.

Lennon takes over from Michael Murphy and Pauric Dowdall, who guided Armagh to the Junior All-Ireland title last season.

Armagh Camogie spokesperson, Breda Cunningham commented, “We are delighted to welcome both Mattie and his background team to Armagh Camogie.

Mattie’s passion and professional approach to the game is renowned and exactly what our county needs to spark future success give the momentous year that was 2020 with our All-Ireland Junior win.

We also wish to thank our outgoing management, Michael Murphy and Pauric Dowdall along with their support team for the excellent service to Armagh Camogie.

We look forward now with great hope to our games recommencing over the coming months.”
