Graham set to be ratified as Cavan Football Manager


Former Cavan forward Mickey Graham has been proposed for the Cavan Senior Football manager’s job and will be ratified by the County Board on Monday night. He will replace Mattie McGleenan who stepped down last month after two years in charge.

Graham is currently manager of Longford club side St. Columba’s, Mullinalaghta. The North Longford club are going for their third Longford Senior Football title in a row this year. In 2016 Graham led Mullinalaghta to a first County title in 66 years. That year they got to the semi-final of the Leinster Club Championships where despite a spirited performance they were defeated by St. Vincent’s from Dublin.

Last year Mullinalaghta completed the domestic treble and they’ve already secured the Division 1 League title this year. In his native Cavan he had success with Butlersbridge and Drumalee.

The former Cavan Gaels player was heavily linked to the vacant Longford manager’s job following the resignation of Denis Connerton. He was the popular choice among supporters and many members of the Longford County Board but his native county acted quickly in offering him the job.

Mickey was a guest on Sportstalk’s GAA Old School back in March where plenty of topics were talked about including the current Cavan team, playing for the county and Mickey Harte.
