Séamus McEnaney is set to continue with the Monaghan for 2022, the county board has confirmed.

McEnaney, who is in his second spell in charge of the Farney seniors, returned to the role ahead of the 2020 season.

It proved to be a disappointing year in championship, as Monaghan were beaten by eventual winners Cavan in the preliminary round of the Ulster Championship.

The summer just passed was more productive as McEnaney's men managed to get to the provincial decider where they fell just short against Tyrone, who went on to lift the Sam Maguire last Saturday.

Monaghan survived in Division 1 of the Allianz League earlier in the year, performing late heroics to come from behind against Galway at Clones. 2022 will be their eighth consecutive season in the top flight.

Monaghan GAA said in a statement: "Following a management meeting last night, Wednesday September 15, Monaghan GAA have re-ratified Séamus McEnaney & his backroom team as our senior football management team."

The backroom team last season included Donie Buckley, who was involved with the Kerry management team when the county reached the 2019 All-Ireland final, as well as Ray Boyne, who worked with the 2011 and 2013 All-Ireland winning Dublin teams.

In April McEnaney was suspended for 12 weeks after being caught training some of the Monaghan players in breach of the Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time.
