Former Clare senior football coach Mick Bohan has landed a new position.

Bohan was trainer to Colm Collins’ county footballers in 2016 playing a pivotal role as the Banner County were crowned Allianz National League Division 3 champions while also reaching their first ever All-Ireland SFC quarter-final.

Clontarf native Mick is to be appointed as manager of the Dublin senior ladies football team. It will be his second stint in charge of the Dubs having been in charge of the side when they contested the 2003 All-Ireland Final.

He has previously been skills coach to the capital’s All-Ireland winning U21 teams of 2010 and 2012 while he continued in the same role for Jim Gavin when the county won their twenty fourth senior championship in 2013.

A nephew of well-known priest Fr Harry Bohan, Mick stepped down as Clare coach in October of this year citing family reasons as the main factor in his departure. According to Clare GAA he will continue to stay involved with the County’s underage development programme.
