A former Royal player himself, O'Rourke won two All-Ireland medals in a successful 20-year inter-county playing career.
O'Rourke brought success to the international rules team during his managerial tenure in 1998 and '99 and has also guided his club Simonstown Gaels to back-to-back Meath titles in 2016 and 2017.
The 64-year-old will replace Andy McEntee who has been appointed Antrim boss and has nominated Stephen Bray and Barry Callaghan as his selectors.
