Horan for Donegal?

October 06, 2014

Former Mayo manager James Horan.

Bookmakers are reporting 'serious cash' for James Horan to take over from Jim McGuinness in the Donegal senior football hot -seat.

Horan recently stepped down as manager of his native county after four years and the odds on him switching his county allegiance have been slashed from 20/1 to 4/1 by Paddy Power.

Former assistant manager Rory Gallagher remains the bookies favourite at 10/3 but Maxi Curran, Declan Bonner, Damien Diver and Horan are all hot on his heels.

Boylesports have also slashed the odds on former Mayo manager, James Horan, into 11/4 favourite from 33/1 to be the next Donegal GAA manager after a flurry of bets have been placed on him on Monday morning in their Northern bordering shops.  

"We laid numerous bets at 33/1 on James Horan and then laid him at 10/1 and 5/1 and as the demand continued we had to cut him into the 11/4 favourite.,  said Liam Glynn from Boylesports. "The bets were all placed in our border county shops."
