Pete McGrath is the new Louth senior football team manager.
The appointment of the two-time All-Ireland winning manager was ratified at a special County Board sitting at Darver Centre of Excellence tonight, upon the recommendation of the five-man selection panel.

He has been appointed on a two-year term, with the option for a third, with fellow Down man Declan Mussen being named as one of three selectors. The remaining selectors, who will be Louth men, are to be confirmed in due course.
Wayne Kierans - who led the Wee County minors to the Leinster final this year - is believed to be one of those who could potentially join McGrath's team.

McGrath was most recently in charge of Fermanagh, with the highlight of his four-years on Erneside being the All-Ireland quarter-final appearance of 2015.
His experience of Louth football relates to his stint with Cooley Kickhams in the mid-noughties where he led them to a Louth Senior Championship final.
