Rory Gallagher set to make return to management after ban lifted

First Reported by John Fogarty, Irish Examiner

Former Derry manager Rory Gallagher’s ban from GAA activities has been lifted. The ban was lifted by the Disputes Resolution Authority (DRA).

The DRA sided in Gallaghers favour against the Ulster Council’s decision. The decision had excluded Gallagher from managing and coaching GAA teams.

Rory Gallagher’s hearing took place on the 1st of February and notification of their ruling was sent to all the parties involved early this morning.

Following the decision, Gallagher is now free to take charge of GAA sides which is likely to cause a lot of controversey. Gallagher coached Monaghan club Corduff last year prior to notice of the suspension, which was issued last September.

Gallagher had been temporarily barred by the Ulster Council as they established a panel to delve into the abuse allegations surrounding his private life.

“Ulster GAA wish to confirm that Mr Rory Gallagher has been temporarily debarred, without prejudice, from the GAA until the Ulster GAA Safeguarding Panel conclude their work.”
