Raharney have Eamonn Gallagher back at the helm. Good move. He's been successful in the past with their players in both codes. Lot of potential based on underage dominance in recent years.

Seen on the website Kevin O'Brien gone to Ballinamere in Offaly along with the Clonkill coach. Also taking the county 20s. Good appointment by county board

Few rumours around that David Scahill is not over Shandonagh.

Offaly's Laz Molloy in as coach with Shamrocks to replace Enda Monaghan.
I thought they always prided themselves on appointing from within.

More that they prided themselves on not paying. Ray Smyth isn't one of their own for example. But you can be sure he never took a penny off any club.
Ned Moore is still manager, right?

Yes, Ned still manager along with same selectors as posted on their Facebook page last night.
So are all senior clubs sorted now - seesm to be a question mark over Shandonagh and Caulry ?
I hear some clubs back training and no sign of a confirmed master fixture list.

Shamrocks had Sean Finnegan in the past, a Roscommon man, Frank Mescall from Ballynacargy also trained them to a senior championship in 2000. Ray Smyth likewise in 2012. Shamrocks' policy has been to resist paying managers, a commendable one I'm sure you'll admit. Major blight in the Gaa in last 25 years with outside managers ransacking clubs.

Some amount of ransacking going on in Westmeath so !!
Fair comment re Shamrocks, certainly not their first external influence so. Will be interesting.
I think the traditional manager does everything role is disappearing.
The manager and coach partnership can work well with the right combination.
Next thing is we'll have directors of football !!

I see Caulry have appointed Sean Kelly. Is this the chap from Meath ? If so seems to have coached a good bit - Meath seniors and for county board as well as Leinster provincial team. Can anyone confirm ?
