Seen and Heard: Ryan makes return to Wexford football

Jason Ryan, who recently stepped down as Kildare Senior manager, is on his way back to Wexford football.
Ryan, who previously managed the Wexford Senior side before joining Kieran McGeeney in Kildare, had two years in charge of the Lilywhites after the former Armagh All-Ireland winning captain failed to win the backing of the County Board.
When Ryan stepped aside knowing that he had lost the confidence of the Kildare committee, he became a free agent, but his time away from football has been short.
Now he has taken over the managerial role with Taghmon-Camross in both football and hurling for a six-week stint, or for how long they remain in contention for county titles.
So Wexford fans could once again see lots of Ryan over the coming weeks as both Taghmon-Camross Intermediate football and Junior hurling sides have qualified for their respective quarter-finals. One of his first tasks will be to overcome the challenge posed by a Kilanerin side containing the star of his early years with Wexford, Matty Forde.
