New Fermanagh Manager Required
« on: July 22, 2010, 03:18:53 PM »
Malachy O'Rourke has stepped down as manager of the Fermanagh senior footballers.

O'Rourke spent three years in charge of the Ernesiders, leading them to an Ulster final appearance in 2008 where they lost to Armagh after a replay.

The Orchard county also put pay to their championship hopes this year with a victory in the qualifiers, this coming after Fermanagh were relegated to Division 4 of the Allianz League.

The Fermanagh management committee will be meeting shortly to put in place a process to appoint a new manager of the county senior team.


Any ideas who should take up the reigns?

Why are you hiding this away on the Local GAA section?

IMO there is only one man.  McGinnity
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

Too right but Roslea football riding on the crest of a wave at the moment and he knows that "they need to make hay while the sun shines"... will he want to leave this?

Other runners possibly.

Fermanagh men:
Chapman.  Has won  county titles with Newtown and Cavan gaels this year.
Dom.  I would say he will throw his hat in the ring.
Sean Maguire.  His name always seems to get a mention.
Peter Clarke.  Won an all ireland intermediate with Lisnaskea.  Not too many Fermanagh managers have done that.
Ciaran Donnelly:  very good trainer and has done a great job with any CBS team he has been involved with.

Outsiders:
Mark Henry:  Took Fermanagh minors this year and won a championship match for the first time in a life time.
Peter Canavan:  He will not be getting the chance with Tyrone anytime soon so why not??
Frank Dawson:  Has an excellent record with different clubs in a load of different counties.  Certaintly has the experience and know how.
Micko:  Maybe he fancies a crack with an Ulster team before he retires.

Any other names anybody can think off??

Also are we going to see the report??
There is alot more to this situation that putting the blame at John O'Neills door.
IMO the county board have questions that need answered as well...

Justin McNulty would be good if could prise him away Laois. However, that is unlikely and anyway it is likely to be too late in the year now to get any other current inter county manager.

Brian McIvor is another name being talked about.

Will probably go to Chapman - and to be fair to him, given what happened in the last round of recruitment, he probably deserves a shot at it.

McGinnity has always shy-ed away from taking the Fermanagh job. Why would he change his mind now when we are arguably at the lowest point ever? I guess the only way is up....

Paddy Crozier has been asked to put his hat in the ring as he is now finished at Omagh.
