Club delegates ratified the decision to reappoint Bohan for a spell that will extend to the end of the 2020 campaign.

Bohan guided Dublin to All-Ireland glory last year with a 4-11 to 0-11 final victory over Mayo in his opening season in charge. The success ended a seven-year wait for Dublin with three successive defeats in deciders preceding that win.

They retained that crown this year with a 3-11 to 0-12 triumph over Cork in the final while Bohan also steered Dublin to two Leinster crowns and a victory in the Division 1 national league final against Mayo last May.
