It seems the players have got rid of the management teams in Ballinamore the last two years.

Aidan Rooney is the new manager in Manor, Glen Young obviously got the blame for not winning any of the 3 finals. Great to see Rooney back involved in Leitrim football, hopefully he does decently with Manor and that the county board get him involved at some level of coaching.

Tommy McCormack from Killoe is supposedly the new Aughawillan manager, big appointment after his work with Killoe in the last few years. All the big sides seem to be making moves to catch up with Mohill.

There was word that Aughnasheelin, Ballinamore, Drumshanbo and Carrick have new managers also. The Merry-go-round is in full swing.

Managerial merry go round in full swing indeed. Very surprised Manorhamilton have jettisoned Young after only one year back.

Davis and Co. remaining with Mohill

Seamus Quinn with Carrigallen for 2016.

Gary Donohoe has moved to Longford with Fr Manning Gaels.

Heard nothing to suggest Michael Moyles has left Annaduff.

Great to see Aiden Rooney back with Glencar Manorhamilton. Hopefully it will be a success and we will lead to more in club appointments. Restoring pride from within has to be way to go in regards to leitrim football as a whole. Hopefully this can be a start, Melvin Gaels lads seem to moving in right direction too along with Mohill and Willie's a resurgence in attacking and competitive club football is a must. Negative defensive football at club level a killer when lads step up to play as forwards at inter county level.

The appointment of proven coaches at club level can only bring on football as a whole in Leitrim.
The loss of Gary Donoghoe and Glen Young isnt good as both are proven coaches with success hopefully they can be brought back into Leitrim football in the near future.

Mohill, Manor, Melvin Gaels and Aughawillan seem to be kicking on, McCormack is a very impressive appointment by the Willies. Carrick need to catch up or will be left behind. If Mulligan as unlikely as it seems could be convinced to play for Melvin it would be the most competitive championship in years. Gortletragh, Drumshanbo and Dromahair seem to be on the next level down and hopefully Moyles can get Annaduff to kick on to a better standard.

at this stage Mohill & Aughawillan look the front runners for c'ship success in 2016 with Manor in third. expecting aughawillan to bounce back with renewed hunger in 2016 and Mark Plunktt has been particularly impressive in the hastings cup this year and he could give them an added dimension. Mohill will be looking to build on last year and with a smaller representation on the county panel this year that could benifit them. I bumped into a man from manor over christmas who was of the opinion that their squad while talented, will not win another senior c'ship as there is too much infighting among the players and he said this is the reason they are 5 years since their last c'ship win. He thought rooney was a good appointment but said he would have his hands full. It will also be interesting to see how melving Gaels do on their return to the senior ranks after a years sabbatical. rumours abound as to where Mulligan will be playing his club football this year althought the smart money seems be on him staying in dublin.
