Dessie Farrell given another two years with Dublin. Not sure if he's the right manager to lead them through their current transition but that ends the speculation that his time with Dublin was over.


Iím happy that Dessie wants to go for another two years. Best option out there for the Dubs. Obviously we were very close this year despite missing our most important forward. Heís pretty much picking the right players. The bench is weak, but thatís just a case of Ďit is what it isí, itís not like thereís a few hidden gems out there that heís missing. But hopefully a couple of lads will put their hand up in the ongoing club championship to provide extra options.

What other options was out there? Only seen Declan Darcy mentioned who ended up taking on another role. Dublin should have plenty of options.

Biggest task for Dessie Farrell is the transition and leaving the team in decent shape for the next manager. Finding replacements for the older guard that haven't long left Michael Fitzsimons, Jonny Cooper, James McCarthy, Dean Rock etc. While introducing new faces into the set up, thus far few of Dublin U20 players the reached All-Ireland finals in 2020, 2019 have become established senior starters.

Would expect James Doran, Adam Rafter, Josh Bannon and Mark Lavin from them u20 teams to feature more next year. Peader O'Cofaigh Byrne, Lorcan O'Dell and Brian O'Leary only players from them teams to break through so far.

Well thatís it, once Darcy, Gavin and Gilroy showed no interest, it was a no brainer to go with Dessie again.
Sherlock and Bohan would love the job, but they have no friends at county board level, and both would come with doubts anyway. Anyone else would be a big gamble.

I think Rock will be the biggest loss. A reliable long range freetaker is kind of taken for granted when heís there and makes it look easy. Not having a decent long range freetaker was one of the reasons Dubs lost so many big games between end of the 90s and throughout the naughties, and I could see a repeat scenario as thereís nobody out there at the moment.

Would like see Con take the frees next year ahead of Costello if Rock not starting. Comerford can take 45s/long range frees. Fionn Murray and Ciaran Archer  have potential to be decent freetakers but need to contribute more from play.

Seven football counties are looking to appoint a new manager: Roscommon, Donegal, Monaghan, Wicklow, Limerick, Westmeath and Wexford. Anyone want to guess which county will be last to appoint a new manager?
Afaik Wicklow and Wexford have appointed managers. Does that leave Ros, Donegal, Monaghan, Limerick and Westmeath?

For Monaghan the latest rumour is Vinny Corey is in the running. Adding fuel to the fire is that his brother Martin (after 4 years) is not going to be coaching Cavan for 2023. After a few red herrings, this does seem like the one that is going to come to fruition. Might be possible that Eoin Lennon might be involved too but hard to know.

Ronan O Neill from Tyrone has been added to the Fermanagh backroom team.
Hasn't coached or managed anybody( still playing club football for Omagh) but sure why would that matter
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

He is coaching.
He has obviously coached before.
Would you prefer someone who has coached county level before but who has proven to be average.
Maybe Fermanagh aren't the most attractive proposition for a coach.
Maybe you should be glad he accepted the offer

Was Ronan O'Neill forwards coach for Tyrone 2/3 years ago?

Glad he accepted it.
Catch yourself on .
He should neve have been offered it.
Where has he coached ?

Outside of school teams and youth teams in Omagh tell me where he has coached ?
What senior teams ?

If Tyrone announced Sean Quigley as the new forwards coach their would be uproar.

Would you believe he was offered a coaching job with Tyrone seniors two years ago ?

Offered a job

Did he take it ?

What senior teams has he coached ?

I am sure Ronans is a great fella but he should not be cutting his teeth with Fermanagh.
He has no previous experience .

You may be correct.

He might also be a great addition to the Fermanagh set up.

People love to get annoyed about stuff

Afaik Wicklow and Wexford have appointed managers. Does that leave Ros, Donegal, Monaghan, Limerick and Westmeath?

Yes john Hegarty the new Wexford manager and Oisin McConville Wicklow

Three of the five seeking managers have Div 1 football next year. Limerick have Div 2 football while Westmeath should be pushing hard to gain promotion to Div 2.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

We are trying to decide between Jim Gavin, Eamon Fitzmaurice or take a chance on Star. Also waiting to hear back from all 3. Phone should ring any minute now.
