St Rynagh’s Albert Kelly is the new Westmeath camogie manager.

Kelly, who previously managed the Offaly camogs in 2020 and has enjoyed great success with his home club, takes over from Darren McCormack who stepped down following the Lake County’s relegation from the senior ranks this year.

A statement issued by the Westmeath Camogie Board yesterday read: “Albert is a native of Banagher, Co. Offaly and comes with a wealth of camogie / hurling experience. He most recently has been manager of the Offaly senior camogie team, having previously managed St Rynagh’s camogie in 2017 and 2018.

“From a strong hurling background, he managed every grade with St Rynagh’s Hurling Club. Previously, Albert managed both Lough Lene Gaels and Clonkill senior hurling clubs in Westmeath.

“Albert’s backroom team will be announced in the coming weeks. We wish Albert all the best for the coming season.”
