FERGAL O’Brien is the new Waterford camogie manager. He was part of hurling backroom team when Derek McGrath was in charge.

Waterford Camogie announced the appointment in a Tweet.

“We are delighted to announce our Senior Manager for 2020 is Fergal O’Brien,” it said. He follows Donal O’Rourke as the senior camogie coach.

O’Rourke stepped down after two successful years in the job. In 2018 the county reached the All-Ireland senior quarter-finals for the first time ever and repeated the achievement this year.

Meanwhile, at a gala medal ceremony held in the Greenway Manor Hotel , the Waterford Camogie U-16 (B) All-Ireland winning team and the Waterford U-16 (C) Munster winning team were presented with their medals.

The event was attended by Kathleen Woods, President of the Camogie Association and Marion Graham, Chairperson of Munster Camogie. The guest speaker was Derek McGrath.

Kathleen Woods said she had no doubt Waterford would be in Croke Park in the not too distant future lifting the O’Duffy Cup as Senior All-Ireland Camogie champions.
