GAA | Paul Galvin steps down as Wexford manager
Paul Galvin has stepped down from his role as Wexford senior football manager.
The former Kerry footballer, who took over the Leinster county last summer, has cited time and travel commitments as the reasons for his surprise resignation.
Galvin's family have moved to the west of Ireland, and the 40-year-old says his business also needs attention.
Selector Shane Roche will assume Galvin's duties on a short-term basis while the Yellowbellies search for his successor.
"Due to the Covid-19 outbreak in Dublin my family has moved back to the west of Ireland. I am stepping away from my role with Wexford due to the new time and travel commitments involved," Galvin said in a statement.
"My business has also undergone significant growth in the past few months and needs attention. I have enjoyed the past 16 months watching, coaching and promoting football in the county since June 2019.
"I would like to thank the Wexford county board for the opportunity and support. Thank you to the players and backroom staff also. I have a strong belief in the talent in the county.
"I wish everybody associated with Wexford football success in the near future."
