Sacked O'Brien speaks up

Eamonn O'Brien has spoken of his disappointment at being ousted as Meath football manager.

Club delegates voted to remove O'Brien as manager by 32 votes to 29 earlier this week in a shock move.

"We won a Leinster title for the first time in nine years and we beat a Dublin team in the championship for the first time in nine years. But, obviously, these things didn't count for enough. I'd have to say I am very surprised and disappointed," he said.

And he added that he would have welcomed an opportunity to address the meeting at which his tenure was brought to an end.

"I would have been happy to address the meeting and to answer any queries and concerns delegates would have had."
