James Horan has been ratified by the Mayo county board after a meeting this evening.
Horan managed the Mayo senior footballers between 2011 and 2014 and will take control once again, following in the footsteps of Stephen Rochford, who left the camp this year.
The Ballintubber man managed to get Mayo into both the 2012 and 2013 All-Ireland finals where they, of course, were pipped to the post on both occasions.
He then left the team the following year – taking work in the media.
Mayo’s official Twitter account revealed the decision made by the country board and now, Horan will re-claim the mantle as they look to finally get their hands on an elusive All-Ireland title.
At tonight's Co Board meeting James Horan was ratified for a 4 year term as manger of the Mayo Senior Football team, along with his management team of Daniel Forde (@ballycgaa), Martin Barrett (@KiltaneGAA), & James Burke (@ArdnareeSarsGaa). #mayogaa #gaa
