Dundalk man McDonnell parts company as manager of Warrenpoint

Dundalk native Stephen McDonnell has parted company as manager of Warrenpoint Town.

Dundalk native Stephen McDonnell has parted company as manager of Warrenpoint Town.

McDonnell, a former Dundalk FC midfielder, leaves the County Down club at the foot of the Danske Bank Premiership after a difficult start to the season.

However, at just 28, he enjoyed a successful time at the helm of the Milltown men, guiding the club to safety in each of the last two campaigns, as well as reaching last year's Irish Cup semi-final.

In a statement, Town director Connaire McGreevy wished to thank McDonnell for his time in charge.

There remains a hugely distinct local flavour to Warrenpoint's first-team, with Anton Reilly, Emmet Hughes, Ciarán O'Connor, Mark Byrne, Deane Watters and James Prendergast among the panel.
