TOMÁS Ó FLATHARTA has been appointed as the Laois senior football manager.

The former Galway boss was ratified without opposition at last night’s county board meeting.

Ó Flatharta replaces Justin McNulty, whose three-year term came to an end this summer.

Speaking following the appointment, county chairman Gerry Kavanagh told delegates that he was “very confident that we have gotten the right man for the job.”

Ó Flatharta has agreed a three-year deal, although his position will be subject to review at the end of each season.

Coach Jerome Stack and selectors Fergal Byron and Noel Garvan have been confirmed as his backroom team.
