Club delegates ratified the decision to reappoint Bohan for a spell that will extend to the end of the 2020 campaign.

Mick Bohan was last night reappointed as Dublin manager by club delegates for a new 2 year term. Bohan has guided the Blues Sisters to 2 All Ireland’s, 2 provincial titles along with the County’s 1st NFL crown since first being appointed senior manager back in Dec 2016 #COYGIB

Bohan guided Dublin to All-Ireland glory last year with a 4-11 to 0-11 final victory over Mayo in his opening season in charge. The success ended a seven-year wait for Dublin with three successive defeats in deciders preceding that win.

They retained that crown this year with a 3-11 to 0-12 triumph over Cork in the final while Bohan also steered Dublin to two Leinster crowns and a victory in the Division 1 national league final against Mayo last May.

Bohan was first appointed to the position in December 2016, succeeding Gregory McGonigle and commencing a second stint in charge. He had previously managed Dublin to an All-Ireland final appearance in 2003.

He had worked as coach to the Clare senior footballers in 2016 and was linked with the Roscommon managerial post recently, which was ultimately filled by Galway native Anthony Cunningham.
