It's been an underwhelming past couple of seasons for Monaghan, but it seems that they have decided on their next manager ahead of the new campaign. After Seamus 'Banty' McEnaney stood down as manager at the end of June, a host of names had been linked with the job.

The Irish Independent are reporting that former Dublin defender Ger Brennan is expected to take the role as Monaghan senior football manager. After stepping down as a selector for Carlow in 2021, Brennan became manager of Newbridge outfit Moorefield.

Prior to this, the former St. Vincent's man had roles as manager with Bray Emmets in Wicklow and UCD, where he led them to two Sigerson Cups during his tenure.


Brennan won two club All-Ireland titles with St. Vincent's as well as another two All-Ireland's with Dublin in 2011 and 2013.

Brennan's former Dublin teammate Jason Sherlock had also been linked with the job, as well as Ballymun Kickhams' manager Brendan Hackett.

GAA: Monaghan in 2022

Monaghan retained Division 1 status for the 2023 season after defeating Dublin in Clones. Monaghan lost out to Derry in last year's Ulster Senior Football Championship semifinal. Following their provincial exit, they faced Mayo in a first round qualifier, where they lost 1-13 to 0-12.

With no silverware for Monaghan since 2015, the county will be hoping for a change in fortunes with the appointment of Ger Brennan.


It will undoubtedly be a difficult task for Brennan and his management team with the strength of teams in the Ulster Championship. The breakthrough of players from Derry and Armagh have made a difficult provincial championship even harder, which was evident last season.
