Harte and O’Donnell to manage Ballinderry


Ballinderry Shamrocks have announced that Mark Harte and Adrian O’Donnell will be their senior managers in 2017.

Harte and O’Donnell take over from Martin McKinless.

Chairman Pearse Cullen said: “Ballinderry Shamrocks are delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Harte and Adrian O’Donnelly as our joint senior manager for the forthcoming season.

“Mark and Adrian will continue in their current role as senior team managers with Pomeroy until the conclusion of their current All-Ireland Campaign.

“Mark and Adrian have asked that no further media enquiries are directed towards them in respect of their new appointment at this time.

“Their entire focus understandably is on their preparations for an All-Ireland Intermediate club semi-final in January 2017.”

Harte and O’Donnell led Pomeroy to the Tyrone and Ulster Club Intermediate Championship titles earlier this year.

The duo managed Tullylish in 2012, and they led Roslea to the Fermanagh championship in 2014.

They face a stiff task in 2017 with Ballinderry though, as their job will be to usurp Ulster Champions Slaughtneil who have won three Derry championships in a row.
