ANTHONY CUNNINGHAM’S ROSCOMMON backroom team has been confirmed with successful local club managers Iain Daly and Mark Dowd both coming on board as selectors.
Daly recently stepped down as manager of the Michael Glaveys club having guided them to the 2018 All-Ireland intermediate final where they lost out to a Sean Cavanagh-inspired Moy side in Croke Park.

He also has previous experience of working with the Roscommon seniors having served under Fergal O’Donnell when they captured the 2010 Connacht SFC crown.
Dowd was also a selector with the Roscommon minor side who won the 2006 All-Ireland final after famously defeating Kerry in a replay.
Meanwhile, Noel Flynn from the Lucan Sarsfields club has been appointed as Roscommon’s strength and conditioning coach.
Flynn was previously part of Peter Creedon’s backroom team with Laois and is also a former underage player for Dublin.

Cunningham was announced as Roscommon’s new senior football manager earlier this month.
The former Galway hurling boss takes over from Kevin McStay, who stepped aside in September and revealed his decision to retire from senior inter-county management in the process.
