THERE IS a strong Donegal feel to the new Tipperary senior football management.
David Power was last night appointed as Tipp manager on a two-year term – and has two Donegal men working alongside him.
Letterkenny man Michael McGeehin takes up the role as head coach of the Premier County.
Charlie McGeever, a native of Gortahork, will be a coach/selector alongside Paddy Christie, Tommy Twoomey and Joe Hayes.
Last night at the Sarsfields Centre in Thurles, delegates gave the new management the green light.
Power led Tipp to the All-Ireland minor title in 2011 while he also had a spell with the county U21s.
McGeever had a good spell at the help of Tipperary’s minors while he won the Munster senior club title with Clonmel Commercials in 2015. McGeever is a former Finn Harps player and manager, who led them to the 1999 FAI Cup final.
McGeehin, the director of Coaching Ireland, is back involved having previously been the Tipperary team trainer when Peter Creedon was manager.
McGeehin was on John Joe Doherty’s backroom team during the Glen man’s stint as Donegal manager.
