Derry GAA star Anthony Tohill has been appointed as chief executive of the new Mid Ulster super council.

Mr Tohill, who helped Derry to All-Ireland glory in 1993 and managed the Ireland Australian rules team, is understood to have been appointed on Monday night.

Last year, he sustained serious injuries after a chainsaw accident.

In recent years, he has served as a senior official with Derry City Council.

The appointment is expected to be formally announced later today.
