James Horan (born 1972) is a Gaelic football manager and former player. As a manager, he is currently in his second spell in charge of the Mayo county team.

He led Mayo to two All-Ireland finals during his first spell in charge with a return of two defeats: in 2012 by Donegal and in 2013 by Dublin.


Horan experienced a successful playing career at club level with Ballintubber and at inter-county level with Mayo. He was a key member of the half-forward line on the latter team throughout the 1990s and collected three Connacht titles and two All-Star awards in 1996 and 1999. Immediately after retiring from inter-county football, Horan became involved in team management. He was appointed manager of his native club, Ballintubber, in 2007 and guided the team back to the senior ranks and to a senior championship final after three years in charge.[1]

Horan was appointed manager of the Mayo senior football team in October 2010 on a three-year term.[2] Mayo lost the 2012 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final to Donegal.[3] In October 2012 he agreed a new two-year extension to his contract.[4] Mayo qualified for the 2013 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final after defeating Tyrone in the semi-final.[5] Mayo lost in the final for the second year in a row, this time to Dublin on a 1–14 to 2–12 scoreline.[6]

On 30 August 2014, following a semi-final replay defeat to Kerry, Horan resigned as Mayo manager.[7] In his first interview after stepping down, Horan showed his frustration by lashing out at the Mayo County Board.[8]

On 4 October 2018, Horan returned as Mayo manager on a four-year term.[9]
