John McEvoy has been named as the Derry Senior Hurling manager for the 2019 season.
McEvoy takes the reigns of the Oakleaf County as a former Dublin U’21 manager overseeing their march to the All-Ireland Final at the grade.
He will be assisted by Johnny McGuirk who is also a former Dublin U’21 manager and selector with the Dublin Senior Hurling Panel while having a spell in charge of the boys in blue’s minor side.
Brian Delargy is a former Cushendall and Antrim hurler with a wealth of experience of coaching from within his own club and he will assist with proceedings.
Derry came to within a whisker of reaching the Christy Ring decider in 2018 after losing narrowly in the last four to Kildare.
