Rory Gallagher Career
Gallagher became a selector for the Donegal senior football team in 2011. He quickly learned the names of every player after joining. Peter McGinley was first sought after by Jim McGuinness, who spoke highly of Gallagher as a coach, but McGinley was unable to play due to job obligations.
Furthermore, Martin McHugh admires him. McGuinness made the decision to contact Gallagher. Since his arrival, McGuinness's side has won Ulster twice, and in 2012, they managed to capture Sam.
Although this was not there when McGuinness left and Gallagher took charge, it did cause the people of Donegal to see Gallag her with awe and devotion and as a sort of demi-god to Jim's Messiah.
In 2013, he gave his notice as a selector. The open positions in Fermanagh and Antrim were then mentioned, but he decided to accept the position as assistant manager for the Donegal Under-21 team under Maxi Curran.
James Horan, the former Mayo manager, and Gallagher were considered the most probable candidates after Jim McGuinness left, although Horan later declared he was not interested in the position.
Gallagher was now the most likely contender. In October 2014, Gallagher was chosen as the new head coach of the Donegal senior football team.
With a victory over Derry in Division 1 of the National Football League with a score of 1-15 0-12, Gallagher made his professional managing debut for Donegal. His second game versus Dublin resulted in a loss, 2-10 0-11.
Soon after, Donegal faced Tyrone in the opening round of the Gallagher Championship, with the victor taking on Armagh. Tyrone was defeated by Donegal in Ballybofey, 1-13 to 1-10.
Donegal's defeat in the Ulster SFC final forced Gallagher's team to play Galway in the last round of the All-Ireland Qualifiers on August 1, 2015, at Croke Park.
Donegal overcame Galway by a score of 3-12 0-11 to go to the All-Ireland SFC quarterfinal and face Connacht Champions Mayo. Donegal lost to Mayo by a score of 2-13 0-11 to conclude their 2015 Championship season.
On September 11, 2017, Gallagher was named senior manager of the Fermanagh county team. Only in the Ulster Senior Football Championship final versus Donegal, his previous team, could he lead them.
The board at the time praised Gallagher at the time as a “top rank professional manager” and swiftly named him senior manager of the Derry county side.
In extra time, Derry defeated Donegal 1:14 to 1:16 to win the 2022 Ulster Senior Football Championship. Gallagher was in charge of Derry.
Less than two days before the 2023 Ulster Senior Football Championship final, in May 2023, Gallagher “stepped back” from his position as senior manager of Derry due to charges of domestic abuse made by his divorced wife, Nicola, on social media.
He left his position as manager of Derry on May 16, 2023. It was discovered that the sports organization was looking into him in August 2023.
