Colm Boyle is set to work as a selector and coach with the Mayo minor football team for 2023.

Boyle retired at the end of last year having played 120 times for the green and red after making his debut in 2008. In that time he won six Connacht titles and a National League, as well as being involved in a squad which reached six All-Ireland finals.

A torn ACL kept him off the field in Mayo's 2020 and 2021 final defeats to Dublin and Tyrone, but the 36-year-old has wasted little time in getting back involved with the county set up.

"Colm always wore his heart on his sleeve when he pulled on the Mayo jersey and that is why he had such a special connection with the Mayo supporters," said Mayo GAA chairperson Seamus Tuohy.

"I would like to wish Colm, minor manager Sean Deane and all the backroom team the very best for the year ahead.

"I also want to thank Gary Ruane, who is stepping away from his role with the minors this year, for his dedication and commitment as a coach and selector with Mayo development squads and with the Mayo minors over the past few years."

Mayo minor manager Sean Deane also confirmed that Shane McCann, Danny O'Toole, Martin Costello, Michael Gallagher, Dr. Pat O’Toole and Willie Joe McHale will be part of his management team for the upcoming season, with the position for goalkeeper coach to be filled at a later date.
