Ray Dempsey has stepped down as Limerick Senior footballer manager.

The Irish Examiner is reporting that Mayo native Dempsey announced his intention to step aside on Thursday evening after the players met last week. They are currently bottom of Division 2 without a win in five matches played.

It was announced last October that Dempsey would take over on a two-year term. He was succeeding Billy Lee, who stepped down after six years in charge. Lee oversaw promotion from Division 4 to Division 2 and reached a Munster final in 2022.

Dempsey previously managed Knockmore to two Mayo senior titles and worked with the Mayo U21 and minors prior to that. 

Limerick are still in contention to stay up in Division 2 and a new manager is set to be ratified in the coming days.
