Former Sligo boss is new Bundoran manager

Realt na Mara Bundoran have appointed the former Sligo football manager Cathal Corey as the club’s new senior team manager for 2021.

Corey, who’s a Tyrone native, takes over from fellow county man Terry McCann at Gaelic Park.

His backroom team for the year ahead is still being finalised.

Corey has previous club managerial experience in Donegal – having co-managed Naomh Conaill alongside Jim McGuinness to a senior championship final appearance in 2009 – and then was solely in charge for the club’s senior county title win in 2010 – and subsequent Ulster club final appearance.

He had an unsuccessful stint as Sligo senior team manager in 2018.

Bundoran reached the quarter-finals of the Donegal senior football championship in 2020, but suffered a heavy defeat when shipping eight goals against St Eunan’s in their last eight encounter.
