No white smoke on the Roscommon manager yet. Roscommon GAA have tweeted "our preferred candidate has requested additional time to confirm one additional member of his backroom team"
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Just for the record Syferus never speaks for me.
Nor for 95% of Roscommon.

So he speaks for 5% of Ross? Not bad

Stephen Poacher involved with Carlow so I would imagine itís to give him time to let them know.

A strange choice for the Rossies! As a Sligo man I would be pleasantly surprised as I thought they had more buying power. O'Rourke was with Kildare, Down, Armagh, Louth and Queen's winning a grand total of nothing. A modern day GAA journeyman.

Who's in his backroom team?

He won the Sigerson cup with Queens and was on the Kildare management that reached the All Ireland semi final and very close to winning it. If the rossies manage that they will be more than happy I'd say.

Mike McGurn the S&C coach. A good few Roscommon  players need good conditioning.

Very good appointment there if the players buy into it.

He managed Queens to a Sigerson? Don't think so. Maybe part of a backroom team but he certainly was not manager. The only job he has had as actual front man manager to the best of my knowledge was Louth and based on memory it was a disaster.

Assistant manager with Queens and they haven't got close to winning the Sigerson cup since that win. Look at where Louth are now after a number of managers, I think that says more about Louth than O'Rourke.

If true his retirement didn't last long.

Very good appointment there if the players buy into it.

Itís his job to get the players to buy into it, if they donít itís a bad appointment and he will have failed.

These players have achieved more in the last ten years than OíRourke has so you could as easily be referring to them dragging him over the line.

Itís far from a done deal so your man may not even be good enough to make the first hurdle..

Plenty in the county less than happy with the appointment. Itís no surprise to see you Stanning for an Armagh man, though.

The same tÓts in the county who complained about what McStayís cost was better keep their knives sharpened because OíRourke and his buddies wonít be coming in cheapily. I can think of plenty of better ways to spend that amount of money.

If he gets the job I wish him the best but he has a hard task ahead of him given his track record in Louth and the players that wonít be available next year.


Not the first time Iíve heard the Louth thing. His two years there included a fourth placed finish in Division Two, a 10-point Leinster win over Laois, coming within a point of a Leinster semi-final, a five-point Leinster win over Westmeath and a qualifier win. Theyíd kill for that now.
