Jim Gavin’s former selector Mick Deegan has been handed the reins of Meath outfit Donaghmore/Ashbourne.
1995 All-Ireland winning corner-back Deegan takes over from Gabriel Bannigan who guided the team in green and white to the quarter-final stage of this year’s Meath SFC.
The Ashbourne resident was a selector in Gavin’s backroom team during his first four years at the helm of the Sky Blues.
His son Michael was a star player with Donaghmore/Ashbourne before transferring to Na Fianna at the start of 2017.
Meanwhile, Michael Burke will take charge of the club’s intermediate hurlers for the 2020 season.Tweet
