Pat Fenlon Follows In Roddy Collins's Footsteps By Getting A New Job With A GAA Team

Pat Fenlon Follows In Roddy Collins's Footsteps By Getting A New Job With A GAA Team
By Conor Neville Updated

The League of Ireland managerial merry-go around took an odd turn today as Pat Fenlon got another job - but at a GAA club.

There would be nothing strange about Fenlon, who has managed three of the biggest clubs in Dublin, getting another job. While his experience at Rovers wasn't the most fruitful, he won plenty of League titles as manager of Shelbourne and Bohemians.

But no, Fenlon's new job will involve helping out with Meath Junior B team, Kilbride. He will be assisting with the training of the team alongside manager David Harford, who played junior football for Meath.

Fenlon told Buzz.ie today that he'll just be giving them a a bit of "a dig out" and taking them for fitness work and what not.

Pat Fenlon is not the first League of Ireland stalwart to coach a GAA team.

Hot Rod Collins was appointed the manager of St. Joseph's O'Connell Boys back in 2006. Not long after leaving Shamrock Rovers, Roddy threw his hat at the soccer lark altogether and took up with the Sherrif Street based club.

Thus, Pat could be said to be following in a grand tradition.
