Rory Gallagher appointed Derry manager

Rory Gallagher has been confirmed as the new manager of the Derry senior gaelic footballers.

He takes up the Oak Leaf role less than two months after stepping down as Fermanagh manager.

During his two years in charge of his native Erne County, Gallagher guided Fermanagh to Division 2 of the national league and an Ulster final in 2018.

He was previously manager of Donegal for three seasons, and before that was Jim McGuinness’ assistant in 2012 when Donegal won Sam Maguire.

Gallagher, who lives and works in Killybegs, has included former Derry All-Star Enda Muldoon in his new backroom team.

Derry won the national league Division 4 league title earlier this year, beating Leitrim in the decider.
