JACK SHEEDY To Be Senior Manager

November 8, 2018


The Club are delighted to announce the appointment of former Dublin great Jack Sheedy as the Senior boss for 2009.
Jack Sheedy is a former Dublin senior Gaelic football player, who played his club football for Dublin club Lucan Sarsfields.
Sheedy made his championship debut for Dublin against Meath in the first round of the Leinster Senior Football Championship in 1991. The series famously finished after four games (three replays), with Dublin losing by a point. He scored a goal in the opening game against Meath and finished the series with 1-03. He went on to win four Leinster championships with Dublin in 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995. He won an All-Star for Dublin in 1994, the same year that he won his third Leinster championship and then an all-Ireland senior football final defeat to Down; a game which finished on a scoreline of 0-13 to 1-12.
Jack won two national football league finals with Dublin. The first final was against Kildare in his first senior football year. He then won his second title in 1993 against Donegal in a game that was forced to a replay which Dublin eventually won.
Sheedy won the All-Ireland Masters Football Championship with Dublin in 2004 and also formed part of the management team for the successful Dublin Junior All Ireland winning side of 2008.
The Club wish him well and it is our hope that with the correct commitment from the players some good days are in store for the Reds



The Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Declan Cummins to the position of hurling manager for 2009.
Declan played with Edenderry for a number of years and last year was involved in a management team that brought the lads within a puck of a ball of the semi final.
We wish Declan and his team all the best for 2009



Nevin Farrell and Peader O’Neill will form the Junior Football management. Both are experienced football men and no strangers to Edenderry GAA.
Both former players with Edenderry, Nevin guided the Juniors to the County Final in 2003 only to be narrowly beaten by Rhode.
We wish both men the best in their position
