Galvin takes Wexford hotseat


Former Kerry midfielder Paul Galvin has been ratified as the new Wexford senior football manager on a two-year term.

Galvin, who won four All-Irelands and three All-Stars during a glittering playing career, was nominated for the role with the Allianz Leagues Division 4 outfit last month and was confirmed following a meeting of the Wexford County Board last night.

His backroom team will consist of Tadhg O Donoghue, Eamon Sayers and former Wexford footballers Mattie Forde and Shane Roche.

Galvin succeeds Paul McLoughlin who resigned after two years in the job following the Yellowbellies’ first round qualifier defeat to Derry in this year’s championship.
