The Meath County Board have recommended the removal of Séamus ‘Banty’ McEnaney as manager of the county’s senior footballers.
The County Board met on Thursday night after the Monaghan native refused a request for him to quit following an abysmal league campaign which saw the 2010 Leinster champions win just two of seven fixtures, seeing them relegated to division 3 of the league.
The committee of the Meath County Board has also recommended that four time All-Ireland winning manager Seán Boylan be re-instated as manager after he stepped down from his role as ‘director of football’ with the county last week.
It is expected that the re-appointment of the 53 year-old Dunboyne man will be confirmed at next Wednesday’s full meeting of the county board in Navan.
Meath begin their Leinster championship campaign on 27th May against Wicklow with Boylan expected to be back in the Royal’s managerial hotseat which he vacated back in 2005 following 23 years in charge.
