A specially-convened meeting tonight ratified Gallagher, who has completed two years in charge after replacing 2012 All-Ireland-winning manager Jim McGuinness in October 2014.

The former Fermanagh attacker was keen to extend his reign but faces a transition after the retirements of Eamon McGee and Colm McFadden, while doubts surround the future of other stalwarts.

Gallagher (38) has sown the seeds for the future, however, blooding many new faces as Donegal fell to Dublin in the quarter-finals.
