RORY GALLAGHER HAS CONFIRMED that Brendan Kilcoyne has joined the Donegal backroom team as a selector.
Kilcoyne is a native of County Sligo who has been a St Eunan’s clubman since moving to Letterkenny in the 1990s.
This year, Kilcoyne was involved with the Donegal Under-21s and St Eunan’s as a selector. As a player, Kilcoyne won senior championships with St Eunan’s in 1999 and 2001, and as a manager in 2007.
“Brendan has been on board with us for a wee while now, but we just wanted to wait for his St Eunan’s commitments to be over before we said anything,” Gallagher told Donegal Sport Hub.
“We’re delighted to have Brendan in with us. He brings good experience from his involvement in football.
“This is a guy who watches a lot of football and whose knowledge of the game is first class, as he has shown from his time at St Eunan’s.
“He was with Maxi (Curran) in the Under-21s this year so he’ll have a good grasp of the guys from that set-up that we’ll be drafting in.”
Kilcoyne will attend a meeting of the Donegal squad this weekend, after which Gallagher is expected to confirm his panel for 2016, a list that is not likely to see any major drop-outs, bar goalkeeper Paul Durcan, who has re-located to Dubai recently.Tags:
