Walford, 53, has worked alongside O'Neill since his Wycombe days, experiencing great success during appointments including spells at Celtic and most recently Aston Villa.

McDonagh, 59, who had a brief loan spell with Sunderland as a player, joins from Hull City and has also previously worked with O'Neill.
