Anthony Cunningham to remain in charge of Roscommon until 2022


By Cian O'Connell

Anthony Cunningham will remain in charge of the Roscommon senior football team until 2022.

Cunningham, who guided Roscommon to Connacht glory in 2019, has been granted a further two year term.

In November 2018 former Galway hurling boss Cunningham took charge of Roscommon, who subsequently enjoyed an encouraging campaign earning provincial glory with a fine victory over Galway in the decider.

Roscommon earned promotion from Division Two of the Allianz Football League last month, but then suffered a Connacht Championship defeat against Mayo at Dr Hyde Park on November 8.

A statement from Roscommon GAA said: "At an online meeting of Roscommon GAA County Board tonight it was agreed to reappoint Anthony Cunningham for an additional two year term to the end of 2022 as the Roscommon senior football team manager."
