Dynamic duo for Dub clubs

TWO major names in Gaelic football management are set to take the reins with Dublin clubs for the beginning of next season.

Former Dublin boss Pillar Caffrey will manage Na Fianna in 2014 while Tony McEntee is poised to take over at St Brigid's.

Caffrey has not worn the bainisteoir bib since leaving the Dublin job at the end of the 2008 season having served four years in the role, winning four Leinster titles in the process.

Previously, he had served as a selector under Tommy Lyons but initially carved his managerial reputation by taking Na Fianna to an All-Ireland club final in 2000, a match in which McEntee lined out for Crossmaglen Rangers.

The 2002 Armagh All-Ireland winner is highly-regarded, having led Cross' to two All-Ireland club titles, three Ulster successes and three Armagh crowns in three seasons as co-manager with Gareth O'Neill.

The pair stepped down last year after Crossmaglen lost their All-Ireland crown after being beaten by eventual winners, Roscomon's St Brigid's, in the semi-final.
