AIDAN O’BRIEN WILL take over as Wexford senior football manager, it has been confirmed, following a county board meeting this evening.
O’Brien replaces Jason Ryan, after he stepped down following a disappointing All-Ireland campaign this year.
O’Brien, who had been widely expected to be installed in the role, oversaw Horeswood winning two county titles in a row last year.
He also helped Wexford to underage success, bringing Good Counsel College to an All-Ireland Colleges title in 1999 and the Wexford Under-21 footballers to a Leinster final in 2008.
The Westmeath native takes over on an expenses only basis, and will pick his own selectors and backroom team.
