Don't forget Maryland and Castledaly if you are talking about senior teams !
Quite a few interesting vacancies - Shamrocks, Athlone and Tyrellspass (budda supposed to be with county hurlers and Gavin with county footballers). Let's see how Luke gets on in Leinster but why would he leave the handiest job in club football ?
Tom Coffey no doubt will be in demand in the midlands, vacany at Rhode now too.

Can't see luke leaving lomans there's no one to stop them for another few years , Gary Dolan with Garrycastle is an interesting one they should come out of 2nd tier group in champ , Ian Bradley will def stay with rochfortbridge, Stephen Cleary should stay with the Downs

Downs - stay as they are- filled
Tyrellspass - Budda gone so vacant- vacant
Lomans- Stay as they are- filled
Killucan- Feery gone so vacant- vacant
Athlone- coffey not gone but cant see him staying. actually see him going back to tyrelspass
Kinnegad- stay as they are - filled
Shamrocks- ned moore or ray smith will take this - vacant
Garrycastle - Gary Dolan - Filled
St Marys - Stay as they are - filled
Castledaly- stay as they are - filled
Maryland- vacant - vacant
Rosemount_ they are looking for a new manager- vacant
Thats all the senior teasm even though a previous poster put down Caulry as a senior team they are a intermediate team. Intermediate managers wil be more interesting as the senior winners are sorted for a number of years the intermediate is so competitive in Westmeath and very hard won.

Forgot about Pat Flanagan being available, he will be in demand too for sure. I see Mick is linking him with a return to Tyrrellspass which would be interesting and no doubt Offaly clubs will be in the hunt for him too. I wonder is Peter Leahy staying with Tullamore ? Others that will be in demand - Emmet McDonnell, Jack Cooney, John Keane, Gordon McDonnell, Anthony Cunningham (or is he gone to Dublin hurlers), Michael Ennis, Fergal Wilson, Martin Flanagan, Tommy Carr. Sure it will keep us talking over the winter months !! Surely Ned Moore will get Shamrocks gig, time is a great healer.

Bunbroana-Will depend on if Ned Moore gets the Shamrocks gig id imagine
Ballymore- ???
Ballinagore-Same manager
Moate-I'd imagine Ambrose will stay with them,very young team and I'm sure they'd be hoping to build on this years disappointment
Multy-Ennis will definitely want a crack at intermediate level
Milltownpass-Kevin Burke back with them
Shandonagh-Kevin Hickeys three year term is up but seemely wants to stay on. Very hard to get rid of their own club man even tho I think they need a change
Milltown-Same as this year
Tang-???
Tubberclaire-???
Balnacarigy-Graham O'Connor supposedly staying on another year
Cfcw-Enda Sheridan has stepped down
Kilbeggan-James Duignan not staying on
St Paul's-Dermot Brady staying on

Pat Flanagan met with Athlone last week, would be a good appointment for them. Dessie Dolan Snr with Caulry, any truth in Dessie Jnr going in as a selector with him ? Imagine The Downs and Kinnegad will keep the same managers next year after the year they had this year. Tyrellspass, Rosemount, Shamrocks all on the look out too. Will be interesting to see how Gary Dolan does with Garrycastle.

Pat Flanagan to Athlone would be interesting. Would Tom Stuart Trainor be in contention ? I think they have great potential but need a couple of new defenders and could push on and contest. Plenty of midfielders and forwards. Not sure what the crack is with Jack Cooney and Kinnegad. Will Jack now become no 1 at Rhode ? Trying to cover both teams is a big ask and got caught with the knockout fixtures.

Downs - wouldn't expect change,clery,mcdonnel did a good job
Tyrellspass - presume mangan and gavin are gone,would still be an attractive job for someone
Lomans- Stay as they are- filled,they've been calling for change for a while now depends on whether they bate mullinaghta
Killucan- still a good job but hurling tends to put off the good managers
Athlone- this is one of the best jobs available in westmeath ,very much an up and coming team,who will be close to winning next year
Kinnegad- can't imagine change here,cole/cooney
Shamrocks- they always go inhouse?but who have they left who can take them forward?favourable side of the draw
Garrycastle - Gary Dolan - hard to expect he will be good with no experience,good team on that side of the draw should help
St Marys - bradley should give it one final crack,probably can;t go after winnin g the inter,
Castledaly- stay as they are - filled padraig farrell,limited manager,but a very experienced team,will stay up next year
Maryland- difficult job for anyone,already in the relegation playoff
Rosemount_ need an experienced man,but it will be tough to get out of the group with shamrocks and garrycastle

Cooney is a hardcore Kinnegad man, couldnt see him managing any other senior team in WH. With Kelleghan gone from Rhode, it may be his to take.

Any more updates / rumours ? No surprise to see Pat Flanagan linked to Athlone.
Interesting appointments await for the likes of Shamrocks, Tyrrellspass, Rosemount, Maryland....

So Jack Cooney gets the joint manager gig at Rhode, no surprise. He'll hardly be still involved in Kinnegad, I doubt Rhode would entertain that !

Wow that's a big move and yet another one of our home grown managers left the county Jack Cooney in Rhode Leahy now gone but see Emmet MC Dónald staying around getting the Athlone job which should be a good appointment

Emmet McDonnell managed Balinabrackey to Meath IFC Semi Final in 2012. He managed Johnstownbridge to win Kildare Intermediate Football championship in 2013. He also managed Johnstownbridge to Kildare Senior Semi final in 2015.
