OMAGH native Conal Sheridan has been appointed as the new senior team manager of Gaoth Dobhair.
Sheridan is a highly-rated coach who has had been involved in county set-ups at Fermanagh, Tyrone, Derry and Cavan.
Indeed, Sheridan was the team trainer when Fermanagh, then managed by Charlie Mulgrew, reached the All-Ireland semi-final in 2004.
Sheridan takes over at Magheragallon from Kevin Cassidy, who ended his tenure as player-manager following the 2014 season after Gaoth Dobhair didn’t qualify from their group in the senior championship.
Sheridan’s appointment was ratified on Tuesday night at a club meeting.
