Cathal Corey is set to replace Paddy Campbell as the new manager of the Naomh Conaill GAA Senior Team.
Campbell resigned from the post a fortnight ago, just a few weeks after their controversial Donegal SFC semi-final exit at the hands of Glenswilly.
Corey was hugely successful in his last spell with Naomh Conaill and his imminent appointment will be welcomed by players and supporters alike.
Martin Regan JR is expected to be a part of his backroom team.
He served as joint manager with Jim McGuinness in 2009, and the pair led them to the Donegal SFC final that season.
They were defeated in that decider by St Eunan’s who competed three-in-a-row in defeating Naomh Conaill.
The following year was the most successful year in Naomh Conaill’s illustrious history.
Corey in sole charge of Naomh Conaill in 2010 led them to Donegal SFC success defeating Killybegs in the final.
However, they stormed through the Ulster championship campaign and reached the final.
They were eventually defeated by Ulster kingpins Crossmaglen after a hard fought match.
Corey also applied for the Donegal job after Jim McGuinness stepped down.
His return will be warmly received as Naomh Conaill look to challenge for top honours again.
