Farewell AC, we had a few mighty days but this year's Championship poor show meant a parting of the ways was highly likely.
We're not as good a prospect as we were in 2018 so will probably end up with a B grade manager from the merry go round circuit.

More like two days in 2019 when ye beat both Mayo and Galway to win Connacht. I thought Roscommon would push on under him, but seemed to stall and go backwards if anything.

I can imagine gaining promotion back to Div 1 would be considered a good day also.   In the championship since 2019 Roscommon have certainly stalled.


@seafoid i'm nearly sure Cunningham led Galway hurlers to 2nd AI final after that 2012 final was lost after a replay. Prior to taking on the Galway hurlers he won two county titles in a row with Garrycastle and in his 3rd year they won Leinster (no other Westmeath club has won the Leinster title) and he led them to the All Ireland final.
He did but the same tactical problems which is why the players pushed him out. His improvements reached their end.
He did do a great job with Garrycastle though.

More beaten by better Kilkenny teams than tactical problems and he had more than enough thinking heads on his Galway management team to help out if needed.  In his last few roles Roscommon seem to be the only one that he had a good first year and then regressed. That probably says more about the situation with Roscommon and where they are going regardless of who they appoint next.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Not good enough. Should have won the first day in 2012
Beat KK in the Leinster final and all. That was a massive shock

With Galway hurlers he could never get the No3 berth filled and that was their Achilles heel..

O'Donoghue drops Burke in there and then big McInerney into No6 and finds a winning combination.

Dems the breaks.

Niall Donohoe was supposed to become the full back but sadly it never happened.

Kilkenny is how you do itů quit the week after defeat and have a new manager the week after!

Why does it take so long for managers to be appointed in certain counties??

Kilkenny has had 25 years of Candidates building up to take over from Cody!

Big Lyng was the U20 manager the last few years, was involved in the senior set up under Cody prior to that as well, wonder who's he's bringing with him?

Would Mick Fennelly be interested after leaving Offaly?

Maybe bring his U20 team with him.

Was thinking more along the lines of Bernard Dunne.  ;)

Looks like Conor Laverty will be ratified as the new Down boss later this evening.

There is a world of difference in being a good coach and a good manager. Laverty by all accounts is a very good coach but is as yet unproven as a manager which requires a totally different skill set. So itĺs a big punt for Down to give him the job as it requires a strong personality especially in a county such as Down who have in recent times struggled with player commitment and with some bitter club rivalries. A lot will depend on the backroom team he assembles but itĺs probably a good time to take over the job as he is starting from a low base with fairly low expectations.

Division three looks fairly competitive next year though and it will not be easy to get out of it. At least he has a decent lead in time however unlike wee James who was handicapped last year by taking the job too late.

Did he not win Ulster U20 with Down as manager?

Good appointment, he'll surely bring the Kilcoo boys into the fold.

Are there many Kilcoo players that would make much difference at county level, even down at Div 3 standard? Club & County football are like 2 different games now. Kilcoo always struck me as a team who had good to very good club footballers in every position rather than having a few players who would set the county scene alight.
