Gallagher departs Fermanagh post

Rory Gallagher has decided to step down as Fermanagh manager after two seasons in charge.

Gallagher, who spent three seasons at the helm in Donegal after succeeding Jim McGuinness there, returned to his native county ahead of the 2018 league and championship campaigns.

He enjoyed great success in his first season, guiding Fermanagh to promotion to Division Two and to the Ulster final where they were beaten by Donegal.

They fared well in Division Two this year, just missing out on promotion as they finished third. 

However, they failed to reach the same heights in the championship. They lost out to Donegal again in the Ulster championship before going down to Monaghan in round one of the qualifiers.

It is understood that Gallagher informed the players and county board of his decision over the weekend.

"We have been notified today by Rory Gallagher that he is stepping down from the position of Fermanagh Senior Team Manager,” a statement from the Fermanagh County Board read.

"Fermanagh County Committee would like to thank Rory and his entire backroom team for all their hard work and commitment over the last two years.

"We acknowledge the progress made in respect of their work with the county team having reached the Ulster final in 2018 and gaining promotion to NFL Division 2 in the same year, a status which was maintained in 2019.

"We wish Rory and all members of his backroom team every success for the future."
