No, Westmeath. He used to manage the Westmeath minors, and Tullamore in the Offaly SHC.

Jesus you're steeped in Westmeath GAA. Time to come back to the mother ship.

Just on Limerick there, I heard a whisper that Stephen Wallace, the Kerry Junior manager the last two years, has been nominated for that job.

KCB keeping their cards close to their chests! Even rumours have dried up. John Evans has kindly ruled himself out, which was nice of him. Think it's between Glenn Ryan and Brian Murphy myself, just praying it's not a journey man.

Waiting for Cian O'Neill to finish up with Kerry.

I'd like to think so except this nugget from the Kerry Chairman

Kerry GAA Chairman Patrick O'Sullivan confirms in Tralee tonight that Eamonn Fitzmaurice and his management team are staying on next year.

Did very good work with the Kerry Juniors by all account - will be interesting to see how he gets on in a far trickier environment. I posted before about the Kerry Juniors beating the Limerick seniors in a challenge game early in the year.

Ronan McCarthy has the Cork job apparently. A lot of Cork folk very unimpressed I've heard.

In Wexford David Power will surely be staying on if he wants to given the win over Down, the age profile of the squad and getting to semi-final of the Junior and getting  a very respectable loss to the Kerry team, when the same team trounced Cork and Mayo (two of the serious operators at Junior level)

A left field candidate for Kildare be discussed on the Kildare forum is Jack Cooney.

Any strong opinions on him from the Westmeath, Donegal or Sligo posters?

From a Westmeath perspective he was a selector under Paidi. Then he trained his own club Kinnegad. Took over half way through 2010 when they were going poorly. They got relegated, but he brought them straight back up. I have heard that they really took to him in Celbridge, where I think he won a league title last year. No doubt he learned a lot in the past year with Donegal.

Why would Sligo have an opinion? I'm not aware of him having trained a team up there.

I would have thought Glen Ryan would have been a string favourite for the Kildare job? Have the clubs a strong part in deciding who gets the job?

Diarmuid Murphy must have settled himself so. At one point it looked like he was resigning during the game. Seemed to be fairly laying into Fitzmaurice.
