Congratulations to former Sligo player, Des Lynch, who was recently appointed as joint manager of the Canada senior squad. Des, a native of Strandhill, played as a back with Sligo in the late 1970â€™s. His brother, Declan, was a stalwart player for the club in the second row for many years. He remains a great clubman, being assistant manager of the 2nd. XV this season, and of course Declan is ever present as a steward at the clubâ€™s alcohol-free teenage discos.
The President, Tom Gilligan, and the Committee, wish Des every success in his onerous and challenging new position.
