Weds AM Sport: Ryan Favourite to Succeed O'Neill; Dettori Debuts in Killarney

: 07/17/2019 - 08:06

Following Cian O’Neill’s decision yesterday to step away as manager of the Kildare senior footballers, the search for a new manager will now begin.  

Among those tipped for the position include former stars Glenn Ryan and Anthony Rainbow – both with previous management experience; Niall Carew who managed Sligo and Waterford; current selector Tom Cribbin who’s managed Laois, Westmeath and the Kildare U21’s and former All Ireland U20 winning manager Davy Burke.

Prior to Cian O’Neill’s appointment, it was widely predicted that Glenn Ryan had the job.  He subsequently managed Longford successfully.

Confey’s Davy Burke said he would like to be given the senior manager position when O’Neill’s term was extended last time or to be part of the senior management set up.  
When that did not transpire, he decided not to renew his U20 manager position.  He currently manages Sarsfields senior team.

This morning’s Kildare Today will discuss the issue with Kfm commentator Ger McNally at 10.45

The FAI Board says it remain fully committed to governance reform.

It has responded to Sports Minister Shane Ross, who says that Donal Conway should stand aside as FAI President and not seek a nomination for the position.

In tonight's second leg first qualifying round in the Champions League, Dundalk need to score away to Riga to progress following last week's scoreless draw at Oriel Park.

Kick off in Riga is at 6.30.

Celtic's progress to the second qualifying round meanwhile should be a formality.

They hold a 3-1 lead over FK Sarajevo going into tonight's second leg at Parkhead at 7.45.

Frankie Dettori makes his debut and has four rides in today’s racing in Killarney from 5.55pm.
