Terry Hyland Takes Over Leitrim Footballers

Terry Hyland has been confirmed as the new Leitirm senior football manager.

Hyland managed his native Cavan at senior level for a four and a half year’s which concluded following the championship campaign of 2016.

Previously Hyland spearheaded Cavan’s dominance of the Ulster under 21 age group over a four year period, reaching one All-Ireland Final in that time span.

His vast experience of the inter-county scene included terms as a selector in 1990-2001.

Hyland was joint Cavan senior manager with Val Andrews for 2011 and from 2012 – 2016, when he took on the Cavan senior manager’s role.

Under Hyland’s stewardship, Cavan progressed in the Allianz League from Division 3 to Division 1. In 2013 Cavan reached the All-Ireland quarter-final stage of the championship.

Hyland was ratified at tonight’s Leitrim county committee Meeting in Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA facility.

Leitrim GAA say they looks forward to Terry’s tenure in charge of our senior team’s fortunes and wishes him the very best of luck in his new role

Details of his complete management team will be announced at a later stage.
