Vinnie Corey has taken the reins with Monaghan

Monaghan have announced Vinnie Corey as their new senior football manager on a three-year term.

This comes after a lengthy process to replace Séamus ‘Banty’ McEnaney since the post was vacated in June. It was reported that several candidates were approached about the role, including Dublin legend Jason Sherlock.

Corey represented the county for 17 seasons as a player, between 2004 and 2019. As a defender, he helped Monaghan to two Ulster titles.

He worked under McEnaney with the county team since his retirement.

“Vinnie with his backroom team of Martin Corey, Dermot McArdle and Gabriel Bannigan were ratified at tonight’s county committee meeting in the Four Seasons Hotel, Monaghan for a three-year term. The backroom team will be finalized in the coming weeks.”

Corey’s brother Martin joins from Cavan, having worked in Mickey Graham’s backroom team in recent years.

Roscommon, Donegal and Limerick are the remaining inter-county managerial vacancies yet to be filled this off-season.
