All very quiet. I believe Luke is staying on with Loman's and I see Ned confirmed for Shamrocks. We know Emmet McDonnell has stepped down from Athlone. I believe The Downs are on the look out too.

Senior:
Rosemount: Benny O'Brien ?
Mullingar Shamrocks: Ned Moore
Garrycastle: Gary Dolan and John Keane ?
Tyrellspass: John O'Brien ?
St Lomans: Luke Dempsey
Athlone:
Killucan:
Kinnegad:
The Downs:
Shandonagh: Kevin Hickey ?
Rochfortbridge: Ian Bradley ?
Castledaly:

And also Enda Monaghan staying on as Shamrocks coach, which rules out one potential target for The Downs. Would be good to see both them and Athlone keep their money in their pockets and appoint one of their own. Rory O'Connell for Athlone maybe? I can't imagine Garrycastle, Rosemount or Tyrrellspass will be looking to change. All 3 showed promise this year.

Athlone new manager will be a club legend, and not Rory OConnell...

Dobsy will have a good management team around him. Athlone shouldn't be far off. Surprised McDonnell didn't do more than one year though. Very interesting if Dempsey stays with Lomans, supposed to be a lot of unrest in the camp last year. The Downs could find it difficult to promote someone from within if Cleary is gone, he's been with them a good while through underage. Tyrellspass won't change & I haven't heard about Garrycastle yet. Senior championship is wide open next year.

I hear Tubberclair have appointed Eoin Jordan as manager. Eoin managed Athlone minors and under 21 's to championship success recently. His selectors are Fergal Wilson and Martin Mc Cabe.

Athlone are always a puzzle. Every year of late I expect them to at least reach the final but it just doesn't happen. Interesting appointment at Tubberclair if true. Jordan was involved in Marist teams lately too where he teaches.
Dobsy served his time with underage in Athlone as well as an adult team in Offaly I believe. The Downs will have ambitions but can they get the right person in ?

That looks like a strong management team in Tubberclair for next year
