Declan Bonner will remain in charge of the Donegal senior football team after being appointed on a new two-year term.

Bonner, who has been in charge of the Donegal footballers since September 2017, had signalled his intent to continue in the role but had been told that he would have to reapply for his position which was opened to other candidates.

However, since no other candidates were nominated for the job, the Donegal County Executive recommended Bonner for a second two-year term to County Committee who approved this decision.

Bonner led Donegal to Ulster senior titles in 2018 and 2019 but the county have yet to get past the Super 8s phase under his stewardship and they suffered a shock provincial defeat to Cavan last year, before they were beaten by Tyrone in the Ulster championship semi-final this term.

The 56-year-old had previously managed Donegal for a three-year spell from 1997 to 2000.
