Fermanagh have confirmed the appointment of former Tyrone defender Ryan McMenamin as their new manager after he was ratified by the county board on Monday night.
McMenamin had been a part of Rory Gallagher’s backroom staff over the past two years but steps up to take the top job following the resignation of the Erne County boss in July.
Gallagher left his role after Fermanagh’s defeat to Monaghan in the first round of the Ulster Championship and McMenamin had been hotly tipped to replace him with the news confirmed on Monday.
The former Tyrone star will have Joe McMahon and Paul McIver as part of his backroom staff which is expected to be completed over the coming months.
This season proved to be a very disappointing one for the Erne County considering the impressive debut campaign under Gallagher and McMenamin which saw them reach their first Ulster final in 10 years while they also progressed to Division 2 of the National League.
McMenamin is a three time All-Ireland winner having been a part of Mickey Harte’s sides in 2003, 2005 and 2008.
