Benji O’Meara takes over as Red Hughs manager


Benji O’Meara has been installed as the new manager of Red Hughs.

O’Meara takes over the Division 3 outfit following the recent departure of Seosamh Mac Ceallabhuí.

In 2018, Red Hughs won the Donegal and Ulster Junior Championship titles but were thrown when Mac Ceallabhuí confirmed his departure on the eve of the 2019 season.

O’Meara has stepped into the void.

In 1991, O’Meara played in goal for Red Hughs in their Donegal SFC final defeat by Killybegs.

Six years later, he moved to join Glenfin and was the long-time ‘keeper at the An Gaeltacht Lár club.

O’Meara was a part of Mac Ceallabhuí’s backroom team at Red Hughs and has taken on his first senior management post.
