Derry, Sligo, Leitrim, Offaly, Westmeath, Cavan and an number of other counties who go off the rails in the next few weeks will be looking at him, and if they don't they should be. He should have his pick of a number of jobs.

It doesn't sound like the local population have much desire for him to continue. Bad appointment after Hyland, to be honest.

Longford will prob also be on the lookout as Denis Connerton is expected to step down as he has just retired as a school principal and may be travelling. Few names being mentioned.....

Yes. Dispatches mention him. He has form in Longford - managing local club, Killoe, of late. Also another North Longford club's manager is being eyed but I think there would be major resistance from the club to pull this Cavan lad away - where he guided them to their first Championship since 195something (as well as a Leinster club semi-final)

Longford would be a step down for FOD, to be honest. Any time a Midlands job comes up his name gets bandied about but it's rarely anything meaningful.

How would Longford be a step down for him? What other job is he going to get at county level? The players wanted him out in Roscommon and since he has left we left behind the shite defensive football he had us playing last year with half backs in midfield. The rewards of him leaving and us playing to our strengths were seen this day last week in Salthill.
Don't think Longford could afford money he would be looking for either.

FOD is a quality manager if left to his own devices. Anyone trying to define him by last year's shit show is being disingenuous at best.
