THREE candidates have been nominated for the vacant Limerick senior football manager position.

All three will now be interviewed for the role.

However the sub-committee (Sean McAuliffe, John Galvin and Jim Barry) have the remit to source their own candidate aside from those nominated. The nominees are Tom McGlinchey, Ned English and Barry Donnelly.

McGlinchey was nominated by both Ballylanders and South Liberties, English by Dromcollogher-Broadford and Donnelly by Hospital-Herbertstown.

McGlinchey led Tipperary to the 2002 Munster final and won the Limerick SFC with Ballylanders in 2007.

He has served as Limerick minor manager and last year was Limerick U-21 and junior football manager.

The Cork native was previously nominated for the role.

Ned English trained Drom-Broadford to the 2002 Limerick and Munster SFC title.

In 2011 he was Limerick junior football manager.

Last year he guided Duhallow to the Cork SFC final.

Barry Donnelly previously served as coach of Hospital-Herbertstown.

The Tyrone native is now based in Clare.
