Leitrim supremo Frank Brady will continue at the helm as New York manager as the Big Apple’s footballers attempt to prove themselves worthy All-Ireland participants when they oppose 1998 All Ireland winners Galway next year.
Pat Scanlon of Clare will remain as selector, where he will be more than ably assisted by the much-admired Kerry manager, Paddy Kearney, who led his charges to the kingdom’s first senior football championship in New York since 1967. Leslie McGettigan of Donegal will continue in his role as trainer. A panel of 25 to 30 players will be selected in the coming weeks, and training will begin shortly afterward.
The annual GAA elections will take place this year on Dec. 5, with voting from 2-4 p.m. All clubs submitted their candidates for the positions last Thursday at the Lansdowne Bar.
Following is a list of all candidates and the positions they are seeking to capture:
