Cole to take charge of Meath camogie team
Rathmolyon man looking to guide Royals to the next level
Neil Cole has been appointed the new manager of the Meath senior camogie team.
The Rathmolyon man is expected to be assisted in the role by brother Gary Cole although he has yet to be ratified.
Both Neil and Gary are part of a famed hurling family that also includes Mike who guided Ratoath to a SHC final this year. Gary was also involved with Clann na nGael in more recent times.
Neil, like his brothers, played hurling for Rathmolyon, before turning his attention to management.
He coached Meath underage teams before taking charge of Trim and leading them to the 2020 SHC title, their first in 19 years with the men in red defeating Ratoath in the final, 1-26 to 1-25.
He stopped down from the Trim managerial role after five years.
This year he was manager of Maynooth who lost out to the powerful Naas side in the SHC.
Neil Cole took charge of the Trim camogie team at one stage. While he was with Trim he also won well over 30 under-age titles with teams in various age groups, a remarkable record indeed.
He also managed the Cavan hurlers but now a new window of opportunity opens for him on the inter-county front.
Cole replaces Brendan Skehan who led Meath to this year's All-Ireland Intermediate final where they lost out to Derry after a replay.
The new manager is involved in putting together a backroom team and intends to add more selectors to his management team.
