Flangan new Sligo Boss

Pat Flanagan has been announced as Sligo's football manager. The announcement was made on Monday night (25/11/13) by the Sligo County Board. He takes over from Kevin Walsh after he left the position after a disappointing 2013 season for the county. Pat Flanagan is a former Westmeath manager and he has been given a one year contract.


Sligo has been without a manager for the last few months since the end of the 2013 season. Walsh resigned after their defeat to Derry in the Round 1 All-Ireland football qualifier.

The new manager will meet with the team later this week and will announce his back room team shortly, which forms part of the management of the U21 Team.
