Former Roscommon senior football manager Fergal O’Donnell is taking charge of current Sligo county champions Tourlestrane for 2022.

Fergal, who lives in Boyle Co Roscommon and works as a Garda, succeeds Kevin Johnston who guided the club to a sixth consecutive Sligo SFC last year.

Johnston has since moved on to manage Corofin in Galway.

Fergal O’Donnell guided the Roscommon minors to the All-Ireland title in 2006 and managed the county senior side to a Connacht title four years later.

He subsequently co-managed Roscommon again alongside Kevin McStay, but that partnership ended after one season.

O’Donnell’s appointment as Tourlestrane manager is expected to be formally ratified at the next club meeting.
