Nelson is only in the job for six months.

Meath ladies football manager Davy Nelson has stepped down from his position, along with his entire management team, ahead of their upcoming All-Ireland series group B games against Waterford and Donegal.

The Navan O’Mahonys club-man took over from Eamonn Murray at the beginning of the season but his stint in the hotseat has been short-lived.
