Reports: Peter Keane To Be Named Kerry Manager Early Next Week

After much deliberation, Peter Keane is set to be named as the new manager of Kerry's senior footballers.

Having led Kerry's minor footballers to three successive All-Ireland wins, it is understood that Keane's appointment will be announced on Monday.

According to reports in the Irish Examiner, the full details of Keane's appointment and the management team to work alongside him will be revealed at a county board meeting in Tralee on Monday evening.

After Eamonn Fitzmaurice announced his departure from the role in August, it had been widely suspected that Keane would be amongst those considered suitable for the role.

Similarly in the conversation were former Kerry boss Jack O'Connor and former Footballer of the Year Maurice Fitzgerald.


It is believed that Fitzgerald could as yet find himself involved in the new set-up; working as a selector in Keane's new managerial team.

One of the most demanding roles in inter-county Gaelic football, the Kerry county board will undoubtedly hope that Peter Keane can harness that unquestionable stream of great young talent emerging within the county.

Leading the county's minor footballers to the final three of what was five successive All-Ireland wins, thoughts of how the senior side are to tackle Dublin's dominance will be of the utmost importance to the new regime.
