Former Galway hurling manager, Anthony Cunningham, has been confirmed as the new Roscommon senior football manager, Roscommon GAA confirmed tonight.
Cunningham has replaced Kevin McStay who stepped down from the role in September after three years in charge of the Connacht county.
Although Cunningham is well known for his role in guiding Galway to two All-Ireland hurling finals in 2012 and 2015, he has experience in football too. He managed Garrycastle in Westmeath to an All-Ireland club football final. He also managed the St Brigid’s football team for three years winning two county titles and one Connacht title.
He has been appointed on a two-year term with an option for a third as confirmed by Roscommon GAA tonight.
