Tony McEntee will manage the Sligo senior footballers for a fourth year after activating the option for an additional one year which was agreed between him and the county board last year.

The 2002 Armagh All-Ireland SFC winner will once again be assisted by Joe Keane as the Yeatsmen seek to build on this year's Allianz League Division 4 success and Connacht SFC final appearance. McEntee's reappointment was confirmed last night following a review of the 2023 season that involved the management, players and county board.

Sligo GAA chairman Sean Carroll said: “The review was very thorough and detailed and we want to thank both the management and the players for their time and thoughts. Between us all we recognise that to progress from here requires improving every aspect of the team’s work on and off the field – our standards have to be higher.

“The work of the past number of weeks has focused on getting everyone involved aligned and working together well ahead of the start of next season and we are pleased to have that all tied down ahead of the start of the club championship in three weeks’ time”.

Sligo GAA has also confirmed that Paul Henry will be continuing as U20 manager after leading the Yeats County to the All-Ireland final this year.
