How Twitter reacted to Kieran Donaghy’s Armagh appointment!

News broke on Monday that Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney has added Kerry legend Kieran Donaghy to his management team.

Donaghy experienced backroom roles with the Galway hurlers and IT Tralee in recent years since retiring from inter-county action in 2018.

His total involvement in the Armagh set up is unclear just yet, but twitter reacted positively to the big news.

Bernard Flynn

The ex-Meath sharpshooter was shocked to say the least with Armagh’s newest addition to their management team.

Donaghy’s role wasn’t the only big news, with Sean Boylan being added to Conor Laverty’s Down under 20’s backroom. Both appointments certainly surprised Flynn.

Our Ma

The dedicated ‘Our Ma’ twitter page reacted positively to the ‘huge breaking news’ at the beginning of the week.

The ‘Our Ma’ tweet sharing the news got one of the best reactions on twitter, being one of the first to announce Donaghy’s involvement.

Niall McCoy

The Gaelic Life journalist Niall McCoy also paid huge compliments to Andy Watters for revealing the breaking news.

Watters was the first to share the story, making the announcement in The Irish News on Monday.

Justin McNulty

The All-Ireland winning full back was delighted with Kieran McGeeney’s new addition to the backroom team.

McNulty praised Donaghy’s experience in GAA and basketball and believes he will be a ‘huge asset’ to the Orchard County.

Darren O’Sullivan

O’Sullivan, like Donaghy, broke Armagh hearts in 2006 with their second half goals in the All-Ireland quarter final.

The Kerry man replied to McNulty’s tweet and hailed Donaghy’s as a ‘huge addition’ to the Armagh set up.

Armagh GAA

Armagh GAA today confirmed the news that Kieran Donaghy has joined the Armagh management team.

In a statement, Kieran McGeeney said “I am delighted to welcome Kieran to our coaching team. He brings a wealth of experience and skill and he will be a valued addition to the excellent team of committed people that are driving this team forward.

“Our players will benefit enormously from his insights and presence and I believe this is a positive development for Armagh GAA particularly as we look towards 2021.”
