The Donegal Co Board issued the following statement after the selections tonight:
The Donegal County Committee tonight ratified the selection of Sean Paul Barrett as the U-20 manager for 2020. Mr Barrett was offered a one year contract subject to a review at the end of his term. The County Executive would also like to thank all applicants for this post.
