LOUTH GAA THIS evening announced the appointment of legendary Tyrone manager Mickey Harte on a three-year term.

Harte departed Tyrone after 18 years at the helm this month having guided them to three All-Ireland SFC titles between 2003 and 2008.

Harte will guide the Wee County in the Leinster Championship from next year, with tonight’s announcement wishing him well for three years ahead.

Gavin Devlin, who was on Harte’s successful 2003 and 2005 Tyrone teams, will join the 68-year-old’s backroom team which will also have responsibility for the under 20 side.

Meanwhile, Roscommon also moved to announce news on their management team this evening as a virtual county board meeting agreed to award Anthony Cunningham two further years on his term.

The manager who was at the helm for the 2019 Connacht Championship will stay on until the end of the 2022 season.
