Meath's preparations for the Joe McDonagh Cup have been rocked by the news that manager Seoirse Bulfin has resigned from his position just three months into his second season in charge.

The Limerick native, who first joined the Royals as coach under Nick Weir in 2022, cited personal and family commitments as the reasons behind his decision in his letter of resignation. Bulfin guided Meath to Allianz Hurling League Division 2B and Christy Ring Cup titles last year. Their 2024 Division 2A league campaign concluded with a nine-point defeat to Down, whom they will face in the first round of the Joe McDonagh Cup on April 20/21.

The letter read: “I am writing to inform you of my intention to resign as Senior Hurling Manager with immediate effect due to personal and family commitments. The last two and a half years have been immensely satisfying and enjoyable, culminating in winning the League and Christy Ring double last year. The organisation and professionalism shown by the coaching team with whom I’ve worked with over the course of three seasons, and who left no stone unturned in our quest to do our very best for Meath GAA, and Meath Hurling in particular is to be commended.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all members of Coiste na Mí, Senior Hurling backroom members and players who made the last three seasons so enjoyable. I would like to wish the very best of luck to all involved with Meath GAA going forward.”
