RORY GALLAGHER HAS been named as the new manager of Fermanagh’s senior footballers.

The 39-year-old, who represented his native Erne county and Cavan as a player, had been in charge of Donegal since October 2014 but resigned from his post three years into a four-year term back in July.

He had previously worked as part of the Jim McGuinness backroom team that helped the Tir Chonaill men win Sam Maguire in 2012.

Fermanagh announced tonight that Gallagher has been ratified after a county board meeting. He replaces Pete McGrath, who departed this summer just a week after seemingly committing his future to the county.
