James McCartan back with Down.
Has Aidan ORourke for company this time

Is that not who he had last time too?

I wish them well but McCartan was county minor manager last year and his highly fancied team imploded v Fermanagh. He then gets handed the senior job? Interesting approach.
Only in their own heads though to be fair. The Derry team won that won the All Ireland won all the equivalent Ulster underage tournaments coming through. Down didn't make a final and wouldn't have been seen as their main opposition. They'd one excellent club team but that doesn't necessarily transition to county success.

That being said the move does seem in a bit of a panic as it's getting late at this stage.

Billy O'Farrell. A Laois man now Longford's manager.

Thoughts on that appointment, a preferred chose among Longford supporters?

Apols - yes. My mistake.

I don't know much about him - but I think it's better to get a young lad, hopefully, on the way up, than a serial manager on the way down.

Two time All Ireland winning hurling manager Liam Sheedy to join Monaghan footballers as a performance coach. They have some backroom team assembled now.

Suprised Donie Buckley is still on board. He was linked to a number of counties including a return to Kerry which suggested he had left Monaghan.

The Banty has some pot of gold on him. Getting out of hand now the merry go round of mercenaries who have no loyalty to the club or county.

Former Mayo footballer Aidan Kilcoyne is part of the backroom team  - coach I think.

Kilcoyne is goalkeeper coach. I thought he mostly played outfield? I know played with Knockmore in goal towards end of his career .

If you have enough brass in your neck, you can be whatever you want these days it would appear.
Some amount of chancers on the gravy train.
S&c coach or performance manager seems to be the go to one

Kilcoyne is goalkeeper coach. I thought he mostly played outfield? I know played with Knockmore in goal towards end of his career .

Was the main scoring forward on the Mayo 2006 U21 All Ireland winning team. Played a few years as a forward for Mayo seniors. A serious knee injury finished his outfield career in 2013.
