Former All Ireland captain with Mayo, Diane O’Hora will take over the reigns as manager of the Roscommon ladies football team following Michael Finneran’s departure at the weekend.
The Dominic’s clubman had highlighted his attention to step down from the role at the end of the season, earlier in the year to allow, the county board the necessary time to appoint a successor.
Under his tenure, the Rossies claimed the Connacht intermediate title for the past 2 years while they also reached the last 4 of the All Ireland series in 2018 and 2019 where they lost out to Meath on both occasions.
Speaking on Sportsbeat last night, Ladies GAA pundit Alan Gunn noted that the manager was to be commended for what he had done for ladies football in Roscommon during his tenure.
Westmeath who dropped down from senior football in 2019, will now face Meath in the intermediate decider.
It is a 3rd All Ireland final for the Royal county who have lost out to Tyrone and Tipperary in previous deciders.
