Former Kerry star to focus on business interests

Paul Galvin: Relocating to the west of Ireland

PAUL Galvin’s term as manager of the Wexford senior footballers has come to a sudden halt.

The former Kerry star has quit the role after just over a season in charge, citing work commitments and travel issues.

The former Kerry star said his family has moved from Dublin to the west of Ireland because of Covid-19 and he will focus on his fashion industry interests for the foreseeable future.

“My business has also undergone significant growth in the past few months and needs attention,” he said.

Galvin said he enjoyed watching, coaching and promoting football in Wexford since June 2019 and he thanked the county board, the players and backroom staff.

The Wexford County Board said it accepted his resignation “with regret” and wished him well in his future endeavours.

“It is without doubt that Wexford football is in a much stronger position thanks to his efforts during this time which is reflected in the senior team’s results to date,” a statement read.

When the league action ceased due to the Covid-109 lockdown the county was in contention for promotion from Division 4 of the National Football League.
