Disappointment In Tyrone As Monaghan Set To Appoint Impressive McEnaney Ticket

Disappointment In Tyrone As Monaghan Set To Appoint Impressive McEnaney Ticket
By Maurice Brosnan

Seamus McEnaney is poised to return to Monaghan for a second spell and take over from Malachy O'Rourke as senior football manager.

Nine years after stepping down for the job, the BBC are reporting that McEnaney will return with a strong backroom team with him. It includes GAA analyst Ray Boyne who has worked with All-Ireland winning sides in Dublin and Tipperary as well as Down's Conor Laverty.

The proposed backroom team also includes former Tyrone coach Peter Donnelly. Donnelly recently left Tyrone to take up a role with Ulster rugby. Donnelly has been hailed by numerous Tyrone players publicly for his strength and conditioning work.

In an interview with the Irish Examiner earlier this year, former Tyrone All-Star forward Damian O’Hagan told the Irish Examiner that “the lads in Tyrone who work under him think he’s a breath of fresh air".

Tyrone great Sean Cavanagh declared that "the players will be devastated" with the loss of their coach.

It is just one of several management roles yet to be filled in inter-county football. Tipperary, Laois, Wicklow and London are yet to confirm replacements while former Fermanagh boss Rory Gallagher is the current favourite for the Derry job and Kildare are set to confirm Jack O'Connor next week.
