The Ireland Over 40s and Over 50s men’s management teams have been appointed for next year’s Masters International Rules Series against Australia.
Ahead of this weekend’s trials in Mullingar, Anthony McCarthy (Limerick), Jimmy Galligan (Cavan) and Ronan Rocks (Derry) have been named as the Over 40s management, while Anthony Carroll (Roscommon), Kevin Hourican (Leitrim-Longford), Mark Cannon (Donegal) and Rob Stewart (Cork) will take charge of the Over 50s. The Australian Over 40s management team includes Jason Akermanis who was engaged in an infamous running battle with Peter Canavan over four senior Tests in 1999 and 2000, leading to both of them being suspended for the first Test of the 2001 series.
Two test matches featuring Men’s Over 40s, Women’s Over 40s and Men’s Over 50s will take place in Mullagh, Co. Galway on March 9 and Denn, Co. Cavan on March 16. The squads will also have a training runout at the Connacht GAA Air Dome as International Rules action returns for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic.Tweet
