Rumour has it Frankie Dolan heading to Rosemount.
Declan Kelly from Kilclonfert going to Loman's.
Super appointment from Multy if Declan Rowley is true.

Rosemount will surely hang on for John Keane if Gary Dolan is leaving Garycastle at the end of the year?

I heard that Dolan and Keane were staying on. Did Keane not do a bit with his home club before ?

Bit harsh there but maybe you have more evidence fron lads that played for him than I do. 2020 senior championship is wide open and assuming Ger Egan and Jamie Gonoud will be back, Tyrrellspass won't be far away !

Yeah *if* they are at full strength then they will probably come in to the 1/4 final off the back of 5 wins from 5. However it only takes a couple of injuries and they are under pressure.

Agree Andy - and that`s the problem for all rural clubs. Even if town clubs haven't the numbers they get them in form outside.

Raharney and Clonkill both looking for managers by all accounts. Unusual situation

Surprised that Kevin OBrien stepped down at Clonkill but no harm to go out on a positive note as champions. Interesting to see who replaces him. I am hearing Johnny Greville heading to a Dublin club.

I think Frankie is a man in demand. Heard Athlone were pursuing him as a double act with Liam McHale. Think these 2 spent a lot of successful time together at St Bridget's.

Athlone must have found a sugar daddy recently if they were interested in hiring Frankie Dolan and Liam McHale.
