AFTER WEEKS OF speculation, Kevin McStay has been ratified as Roscommon manager for the next two years, with an option for a further 12 months.

The former RTÉ pundit was joint-manager of the county last season, but after Fergal O’Donnell resigned from his position, questions were raised about the Mayo man’s future within the county setup.

Previous front runner Nigel Dineen was nominated to take over in the new year, but dropped out of the race due to his concern over the appointment process.

McStay’s backroom team will include existing selector Liam McHale with others to be named in the coming weeks, after David Casey and Stephen Bohan joined O’Donnell in standing down last month.

Roscommon, who were beaten in this year’s Connacht final by Galway after a replay and then knocked out of the qualifiers by Clare, managed to retained their Division 1 status in the league.
