At the time of going to press there was no progress in the quest to find a new Roscommon senior football manager. The name of former St. Brigid’s manager Anthony Cunningham has been mentioned in recent days after the Dublin hurling job was given to Cuala’s Mattie Kenny at the weekend. Cunningham had been a candidate for that position. It’s not known if the former Galway hurling manager would be interested in the Roscommon job. David Casey has been mentioned a number of times in connection with the vacant post but it’s also unclear whether he is interested in the post.
Meanwhile, Frankie Dolan has stepped down as manager of the St. Brigid’s senior team. He managed his native club for three years bringing them two county senior titles in a row.
A statement from St. Brigid’s read: ‘St. Brigid’s executive would sincerely like to thank Frankie for all his hard work, dedication and commitment to the club as both a manager and player. We would also like to extend our thanks to all the people that Frankie has brought in around him in backroom teams and helpers over the years.’
