Donegal confirm Rory Gallagher exit after Championship loss to Galway

Gallagher has stood down after three years in charge of the north-western county.

RORY GALLAGHER HAS stepped away from his post as senior football manager with Donegal, the county confirmed this evening.

Gallagher took over from All-Ireland winning boss Jim McGuinness in 2014, and did not manage to drive the north-western county beyond the last eight of the Championship.

His first season brought a quarter-final exit to Mayo and, in 2016, Dublin put them out at the same stage.

Last weekend, Gallagher’s Donegal suffered a 4 – 17 to 0 – 14 defeat to Galway to end their Championship in the fourth round, a loss which proved to be Gallagher’s last match in charge.
