Dublin Senior Ladies Football manager Mick Bohan will remain at the helm for another two years after he was ratified by club delegates for a new term.
Mick was first appointed manager back in December 2016 and under his watch he has guided the Dublin Senior Ladies Squad to five pieces of silverware.
In his first year in charge Mick’s side claimed the Leinster title, their sixth in a row and also the All Ireland title, the second in the county’s history beating Mayo in the final by 4-11 to 0-11.
With the standard set it’s was going to take something special in 2018 to top what had been achieved the previous year, but that’s exactly what Bohan’s Dublin side produced.
They kicked off a trophy laden season by claiming their maiden national football league Division 1 title, again their opponents were Mayo in the final and Dublin simply blew them away on the day winning by 3-15 to 1-10.
Next up was the Leinster Final against Westmeath with Dublin looking to claim their seventh title in a row.
Although Dublin were without a competitive game in seven weeks the meticulous Mick Bohan had his charges primed for the game and Westmeath were no match for the ‘Blues Sisters’ as they ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 5-11 to 2-08.
It was a new All Ireland championship structure that Mick Bohan and his squad had to tackle next and tackle it they did with aplomb to once again reach the All Ireland Final.
Standing in their way were their old nemesis Cork, but Dublin were not to be denied on the day as Bohan’s side claimed back to back All Ireland titles with the Brendan Martin Cup secured on a winning margin of 3-11 to 1-12.
Mick Bohan is not only an astute manager but a forensic analyst of the game and his attention to detail is incredible, he is also a renowned skills coach and all of those elements have been acutely evident in his sides displays during his tenure.
It’s brilliant news that he is to remain at the helm of the Dublin Ladies Senior Footballers for another two years.
Bohan and his team have set incredibly high standards for themselves in 2017 and 2018, can Mick raise it again? It would take a very brave person to bet against it.
Roll on 2019.
