Former Tipperary manager Peter Creedon has been appointed as manager of Laois senior footballers for 2017.
Laois were left without a manager following Mick Lillis' decision to step down after one year in the role and Creedon's appointment was ratified by the Laois County Committee on Monday night.
He will be joined by Mickey McGeehin, who worked as a coach with Donegal and Limerick before forming part of Creedon's backroom team in Tipearary.
"Peter Creedon ratified by Laois County Committee as senior football manager 2017 & will be joined by Mickey McGeehin as coach," Laois GAA tweeted.
Meanwhile, Kevin Walsh and Michael Donoghue will carry with the Galway footballer and hurlers respectively until 2019.
Walsh's three-year term ended earlier this year but he made no secret of his desire to remain at the helm, while Donoghue has been given the green light to continue with the Galway hurlers after completing his first season in charge.
