Derry legend Paddy Bradley joins Donegal backroom team
The management set-up is ’90% complete,’ a statement from Donegal GAA confirmed.

LEGENDARY DERRY FORWARD Paddy Bradley has joined the Donegal footballers’ backroom team.

Paddy Carr’s management set-up is “90% complete,” a statement from Donegal GAA confirmed, with Bradley the latest addition to work alongside the 2009 Kilmacud Crokes All-Ireland winning manager and head coach Aidan O’Rourke.

The 2007 All-Star forward was previously involved with the Antrim footballers as a selector alongside his father Liam, while he was Derry U20 manager for the past two seasons.

Bradley also took charge of his club team, Glenullin, in 2022, leading them to Derry intermediate championship glory and to an Ulster quarter-final.

This evening’s statement from Donegal GAA reads:

“In line with Croke Park guidelines the Donegal Senior team returned to training last week in the Donegal GAA Centre in Convoy.

“It was new manager, Paddy Carr’s, first session with the full squad and in addition to coach Aidan O’Rourke, Derry’s legendary forward Paddy Bradley, a recent addition to the management team, was introduced to the squad.
