VINNY Corey has been appointed as the new Monaghan senior football manager, replacing the outgoing Seamus McEnaney.
The Clontibret clubman starred for the Farney County when they ended their 25-year win for Ulster success in 2013 and collected a second provincial medal two seasons later.
Corey, who retired from playing duty in 2019, was part of ‘Banty’s’ management team for the past two years as a coach and a selector.
A combative defender during his playing days, Corey, who spent a season at full forward in 2007, served 17 years in the blue and while of Monaghan.
His brother Martin, Dermot McArdle and Gabriel Bannigan will make up the backroom team.
Corey’s appointment ends a three-month search for McEnaney’s successor, with several big names coming and going during that time.
Oisin McConville and Mark Doran were a rumoured dream team line up while All-Ireland winning Dubs Ger Brennan and Jason Sherlock had been in talks as was former Monaghan minor boss Mark Counihan.
