Andy Moran is set to continue in his role as Leitrim senior football manager for the next two seasons.

Moran, who was appointed last October, saw his Leitrim side finishing fourth in Division 4 of the Allianz Football League before defeating London and losing out to eventual winners Galway in the Connacht SFC.

The group overcame Antrim in the inaugural Tailteann Cup before going down to neighbours Sligo in a penalty shoot-out.

Following James Horan’s recent departure as Mayo manager, there had been speculation that Moran was a contender for the vacancy in his native county but Leitrim county board have since confirmed the eight-time Connacht SFC winner’s stay in his current post.

The statement from Leitrim GAA reads:

“Leitrim GAA Management Committee at its meeting tonight decided that it would be recommending to its July county committee meeting that Andy Moran’s current two-year term as Leitrim GAA senior football team manager would be extended to include the next two seasons that is 2023 and 2024.

“We are delighted to announce that Andy Moran has accepted the terms of this recommendation, subject to its acceptance at the county committee meeting, and we look forward to the continued progress of the Leitrim senior footballers over the next two years.”
