The GAA's longest serving inter-county player Mark Breheny has committed to another season with Sligo's senior footballers.

New Yeats County boss Cathal Corey confirmed that the former captain, who made his debut back in 1999, will join up with his squad next Thursday night as they get set to embark on their 2018 campaign.

It makes Breheny the only active inter-county player in either code to have represented his county in the 1990s.

"We have spoken to Mark a couple of times, he's doing his own strength and conditioning work and he'll be joining the panel on December 28 to give it a go for the new season," Corey told the Irish Daily Star.

Sligo begin a new era under Corey on January 3rd when they take on Galway in Tourlestane in the first round of the FBD League.
