Galway have given Padraic Joyce the green light to manage the county's senior football team.
The two-time All-Ireland winning forward's appointment as Tribes boss was ratified by club delegates at a county board meeting tonight.
The Killererin clubman has been handed a three-year term and will be assisted by John Divilly, Micheal O'Domhnaill and John Concannon.
Having managed Galway’s U20s to Connacht glory this year, Joyce succeeds Kevin Walsh who stepped down from the position last month following five years in charge.
Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes and messages of support. I am truly privileged and honoured to manage @Galway_GAA Senior Footballers. It’s a dream come through. Proud day for all my family and my club. Go get your season tickets and let us enjoy the journey together.— Padraic Joyce (@Padraic14) October 18, 2019
