Fermanagh get Mulgrew

FERMANAGH were poised to appoint former Donegal footballer Charlie Mulgrew as their new manager last night.

A meeting of the executive committee of the Fermanagh Board was expected to rubberstamp Mulgrew's appointment.

Mulgrew has been the favourite to take over from Dominic Corrigan since he met with Fermanagh officials and put forward his proposals to them on Thursday night of last week.

Former Down hurling boss Frank Dawson was another candidate being considered after recent spells as manager of Bellaghy in Derry and Clonduff in Down, with whom he won a county title.

Mulgrew won three Ulster medals with Donegal and was a member of the squad when they won the All-Ireland title in 1992.

More recently, he has turned his hand to management and has been successful in Donegal with St Eunan's in recent years.

One of the new man's first tasks will be to try and persuade the Gallagher cousins back to the fold.

Raymond Gallagher has yet to decide on his future and won't make any commitment to Fermanagh until after St Brigid's interest in the All-Ireland club football championship is terminated.

Rory Gallagher withdrew his services last year and has been consistently linked with a switch to the Dubs.
