Ex-Donegal boss Rory Gallagher is back in inter-county management
Rory Gallagher has been confirmed as the new manager of the Fermanagh senior footballers.
The Fermanagh native has been a leading favourite to replace the ousted Pete McGrath with the Ernesiders since he parted ways with Donegal.
Gallagher was a central member of the Jim McGuinness backroom team that masterminded an All-Ireland success in 2012.
He took over the top job after McGuinness left to join Celtic.

Gallagher had to deal with a number of high profile retirements and squad withdrawals in recent years.
Donegal were heavily beaten by Tyrone in Ulster before exiting the championship in the qualifiers at the hands of Galway.
Fermanagh were well beaten by Monaghan in the Ulster SFC preliminary round and then crashed out of the qualifiers at the hands of Armagh in a disappointing summer.
They were relegated to Division Three in the spring.
