DESPITE wanting another year in charge of the Sligo Senior Gaelic football team, Niall Carew is anxiously awaiting a Sligo GAA County Board review of the campaign just completed before he will get the go-ahead to take the Sligo hot seat for a third term.
In August of last year the Kildare native was handed a two-year term by the County Board after his debut in the Yeats County delivered a Connacht final appearance and a place in the last 12 of the All-Ireland series.
At the time, County Board secretary Gerry O’Connor explained the decision to award Carew and his backroom team a further two campaigns in charge.
“We did not want any change to the routine at the moment. Niall has just had 12 months in charge and we feel that progress has been made.”
“We expect that Niall has plans for the future and he, and his staff, deserve another two years to see where we go from here.”
