Leitrim LGFA have a new manager looking to guide their fortunes, following the ratification of Jonny Garrity as the Intermediate Team Manager for 2023, at last night’s County Board meeting.
Garrity brings a wealth of experience to the role, having been involved with his native county Tyrone in their Minor set up, his most recent appointment was with the Fermanagh Ladies team, where he tasted All Ireland success back in 2020, as they lifted the All Ireland Junior Championship.
His tenure in Fermanagh certainly elevated their status, winning the Division 4 title in 2019 and an All-Ireland one year later, he will look to bring the same to his new appointment as Leitrim Bainisteoir.
Having left Ireland at 19, he spent a number of year’s in England where he had a seven-month stint as performance analyst with Pep Guardiola’s Man City in 2017, furthering his experience as a coach.
The Fintona Pearses clubman, will be assisted in his role by Derrygonnelly Harps man, Dermot Feely, as selector, with additional members of the extended backroom team to be announced in due course.
In a statement issued by Leitrim LGFA, they have welcomed the appointment and look forward to the year ahead.
“We are delighted to bring the process of selecting a person to lead the County’s Intermediate Team into competitive action for the 2023 season to a conclusion, with the appointment of the former Tyrone Minor and Fermanagh Intermediate manager to this position.”
“Jonny has a wealth of managerial and coaching experience which, combined with his educational background and fitness qualifications, make him the ideal appointment. We look forward to a year of progress, as we compete in Division 4 of the Lidl National League and the TG4 Intermediate Championship.”
