How many Kerry men out there now
Evans, Kearns,  Wallace, Sugrue , Sheehan...... ...
Anyone curious as to why all these Kerry men don't get management jobs in Kerry?

It would have something to do with there being only one senior IC job in Kerry.. obviously.

Well I suppose there's only so many jobs to go around.
Evans managed Laune Rangers to an All Ireland Club Championship.
Liam Kearns would be well respected as a manager.
Stephen Wallace won a couple of Junior All Irelands in Kerry, as well as an All Ireland Intermediate Club with Ardfert, he'd be in demand.
John Sugrue lives in Portlaoise and has done for years. He was involved in the backroom team of a couple of Kerry setups but has also been with Laois before.
And Billy Sheehan is living in Dublin I think.

If you're trying to say they are not wanted in Kerry, I think you're wrong.

One to watch is Declan O'Sullivan. He's got Dromid promoted to the 2nd Division, and they are in the Premier Junior championship final as well I think. He's done a bit of time with Jack O'Connor as well in Minor and U21 squads.

Evans, Wallace and Sugure have all managed clubs in Kerry previously.

Don't think Kearns or Sheehan has.

If thats true he's more a fool to accept that deal as all managers should be given at least two years.

Mistrust of the outsider, the foreigner. In IC it boils down to a manager or coach (God help an outside manager who don't have a token local on staff) who isn't from a given county. Here in Roscommon we seem to have a particularly hatred of them despite having only a few managers in the county without a bare trophy cabinet to begin with. It's a childish, easy excuse that appeals only to the worst nature of people.

If that wasn't comical enough, at club level it devolves to someone from a neighboring parish coaching or managing a team being treated with suspicion. The sad part is the one common factor in all of it is a county or a club pulling in different directions selfishly, and going no where because of it.

Jasus Syfīn you are surpassing even yourself in nonsensical rambling now.
An awful lot of Counties have outside managers and a right scatter of clubs do too.
You're  stereotyping is reminiscent of the stage Irishman nonsense.
In our case John Tobin and John Evans were both well liked.
Tommy Tom and the Tanman were not popular and for good reason.
