Gallagher in shock return with Fermanagh

Gallagher in shock return with Fermanagh”

And it is believed Tyrone veteran Ryan McMenamin is to be part of a new-look backroom team.

He played senior football for Fermanagh in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

In a short statement posted on its facebook page, the Fermanagh GAA Co.

Gaelic Life earlier reported that Gallagher was to be ratified tonight, and that took place at a county board meeting. "More details to follow", the twitter message read.

The news will come as a surprise to some.

His on-off relationship with Fermanagh even saw him line out with Cavan, but Gallagher has now committed himself to reviving the fortunes of his native county.

Donegal went down by 15 points to Galway, 4-17 to 0-14, leading to their manager's departure with two years remaining on his contract.

He was back as manager in 2014 and took Donegal to two senior consecutive Ulster final appearances in 2015 and 2016 losing narrowly on both occasions.

It is understood Gallagher would have the broad support of he players, who effectively dispensed with the services of Peter McGrath in July.

Declan Bonner, Sean Paul Barrett and Cathal Corey have all been interviewed. Board has still to announce who the new manager will be.
