Malachy O’Rourke has appealed to all stakeholders in Monaghan GAA to row in together so that success can be more easily attained.
The new county senior football manager was ensconced in Latton’s think-tank for their SFC semi-final joust with Ballybay last weekend but he has now firmly turned his attention towards the county scene and making a success of his minimum two year term in the hot seat.
The former Fermanagh senior player added to his knowledge of football in Monaghan by joining Latton’s backroom team back in July (repeating a stint he had with the O Rahillys in 2011), thus complementing the insight he gained while boss of Tyholland back at the start of the noughties.
“From my time with Tyholland back in 2000 and 2001 and with Latton and having played against Monaghan over the years, I have learned a fair bit about Monaghan football over the years,” the Derrylin native explained.
“I intend to put that knowledge to good use but, already, I can say that there’s enough talent here at the moment and enough good young talent yet to come through to give Monaghan every chance of being successful sooner rather than later.
“I want everyone singing off the same hymnsheet though and working towards achieving the same goal. This is a project that needs to see everyone pulling together and giving their wholehearted support for it to succeed.”
Next week’s issue of the Northern Standard will carry an expansive and illuminating interview with the new public face of Monaghan football.
