The Roscommon County Board have confirmed Anthony Cunningham as their new football manager. 

Aidan O'Rourke was their preferred candidate a few weeks ago but the former Armagh player and ex-Louth boss ruled himself of the process.

Cunningham has previous football managerial experience, having led Garrycastle to an All-Ireland Club final, and also winning two Coonnacht Club SFC crowns with St Brigid’s.

He also managed the Galway hurling team and worked with Dublin under Pat Gilroy.
