Recruitment process for Roscommon GAA Senior Football Manager.

   
At a meeting of the Roscommon GAA County Committee on Monday last,  Roscommon GAA appointed a subcommittee to carry out the recruitment of a new senior team manager to replace Kevin McStay who retired recently.


The committee is made up of the County Chairman Seamus Sweeney, Co. Secretary Brian Carroll, Co. Treasurer David O Connor, former Senior Football Captain Niall Carty, and former Co. footballer Ciarán Heneghan. In addition, the committee has the option to add an additional member if required.


Clubs that wish to nominate somebody for the position of Senior Football Team Manager have until 5 pm on Friday the 14th of September 2018 to do so. The subcommittee was also given the authority to approach any suitable candidates themselves.


Roscommon GAA hopes to have the appointment made in a timely fashion to ensure the new manager has plenty of time to prepare for the 2019 football season and the return to Division One Football.

Such nonsense. There’s rumours going round he was in Breaffy Friday night, again nonsense.

Next thing it’ll be Roy Keane with Liam McHale and Mick McCarthy as assistant
Excuse me for talking while you're trying to interrupt me

Would seriously reduce the amount of droll Mayo accents on GAA podcasts and the like but not entirely eradicate.

You are telling me James Horan will leave one of the most progressive clubs in Connacht with huge potential and abandon his many well paying media gigs, to take the steering wheel on a sinking ship?

Longford ratified Padraig Davis and his management team tonight.

Former county mates Paul Barden and Donal Ledwith are on as selectors. Paul Barden was the classiest of class acts to come out of Longford in 40 years. With this strong team we hope to see a run in the O'Byrne Cup and a march to Div 2 of the League.

Paul Taylor for Shligo I hear.
We must be still talking to Bohan. No word on who clubs might have nominated but I'm sure Nigel was anyway.

Sligo County Board wish to announce that former County player and Under 21 Manager Paul Taylor has been recommended by the Selection committee to be the new Sligo Senior Football Team Manager.

He will be recommended to Club delegates at next Monday’s County Board meeting for ratification.

Paul Taylor hails from the Eastern Harps Club with whom he won 6 Senior County titles.He played for 14 seasons for Sligo and was the county’s most prolific forward during the 1990s.

He was involved with Kevin Walsh as a selector on the Senior team which lost out to Roscommon in the 2010 Connaught Final.

And in his own right he went on to manage the County Under 21 team narrowly losing out to Galway in the 2017 Connacht Final

He is very familiar with the local GAA scene and is keenly aware of the potential of the current senior squad having worked with many of them as County Under 21 Manager.

Joe Taaffe Chairman of the Selection committee stated that the process to appoint a new Senior Team Manager was very challenging given the number of Managerial vacancies that existed compounded by various factors around travel and work commitments for those who considered the position.

He went on to say that during the 7 week process which started on Friday 3rd August,the Selection committee had spoken to 9 potential candidates in a far reaching and exhaustive effort to find a new incumbent for the role.

He further pointed out that the process had to be confidential as many of the candidates had other roles/commitments and responsibilities and their privacy had to be respected.

The Selection committee felt it was appropriate to issue an interim announcement during the process when Eamon O Hara withdrew from the field given his change of circumstances and the Selection committee wish to acknowledge Eamonn’s co – operation in that regard.

In conclusion he stated that he hoped all Sligo Gaels would now get behind a new local Manager and help him to build a new Sligo Senior team in the years ahead.

Paul Taylor will be announcing his full backroom team in the coming weeks which will comprise of two local selectors and a new face to the Senior set up in Coach Joe Keane (Mayo).

Keane is new to the Senior set up in Sligo and comes with a solid pedigree having won an All Ireland Club Senior medal with Crossmolina in 2001.He then went on to coach the Mayo Under 21’s to All Ireland success in 2016 and in the past two years has been involved in the Mayo Senior backroom team working alongside Donie Buckley.

Finally Sligo County Board would like to thank all those who considered the role and thank them for their time and interest and wish Paul Taylor and his management team every success

 Best of luck to Paul, I wish him well but am confused by the county board saying they wanted a manager with prior experience and then pick one that doesn’t have that experience?

Very important that he gets the right backroom team...
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.
