ALL-IRELAND WINNING manager, Eugene McGee has died.

The Longford native guided Offaly during their historic 1982 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship final win over Kerry. 

McGee also worked as a journalist, writing with the Sunday Tribune and he was editor and managing director of the Longford Leader.

McGee reportedly died overnight after falling ill at a family engagement.

“Eugene had an innovative approach to GAA management and was an honourable and well-respected journalist,” said minister for transport, tourism and sport Shane Ross, “I wish to offer my condolences to Eugene’s wife Marian, family and friends.”
