The former Ireland manager has revealed his next move.

Stephen Kenny has been named as the new manager of St Patrick’s Athletic.

The ex-Ireland manager has signed a five and a half year contract and  says he can’t wait to get started on this new chapter in his life.

Speaking in an interview on the St. Patrick’s Athletic YouTube channel, Kenny said:

“It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, I’m looking forward to getting started, it’s a new chapter in my life and a new chapter for the club, and I’ll be giving it everything.

Garrett Kelleher has shared his vision for the club with me for a long time, he has plans for the Stadium, to expand the club into America, European progression and a lot of exciting plans really.

The reason I signed a longer contract is the build the club over a period of time and I’m looking forward to driving it forward.

My mother used to come to watch St Pat’s, she’s from Inchicore and lived in Ballyfermot, so there’s a good connection there.

It’s a big job ahead to re-build and to drive the club on. It’s such a busy time now with three games in a week and we look forward to it.”
