LIMERICK Football officials are awaiting a response from a number of ‘outsiders’ as they continue their search for Maurice Horan’s successor as Limerick football manager.

This Tuesday night the three man sub-committee completed the interviews of the three nominated candidates.

However, they are still ‘spreading the net wide’ to find other potential candidates.

Tom McGlinchey, Ned English and Barry Donnelly were all nominated by the clubs and all attended for interview. The trio presented their potential back room teams to the sub-committee of Sean McAuliffe, John Galvin and Jim Barry. The three man sub-committee are now to report back to an officers meeting of the Football Committee next week.

That meeting will decide if one of the three are to be proposed or if the search is to continue, outside of those nominated.

“There is no decision made,” stressed Football Committee chairman Sean McAuliffe.

“We were very happy with all three interviews and we will meet again next week,” he said.

It now appears likely that they will target the October County Board meeting to rubber stamp Horan’s successor.
