Loughnane re-appointed Sligo hurling boss

Declan Loughnane will be in charge of the Sligo senior hurlers for a sixth season next year.

The Offaly native, who lives in Tubbercurry, was last night re-appointed unopposed to the senior and U21 team management roles after the other candidates nominated by the clubs in the county withdrew.

Loughnane has led the Yeats men to the last two Lory Meagher Cup finals in Croke Park.
