While at a meeting of the Roscommon county board last night, they stated that their nomination process will remain open until Wednesday week. Delegates praised last year’s joint-management ticket of Fergal O’Donnell and Kevin McStay, with the former’s resignation the reason for the managerial process being re-opened. McStay faces competition from Nigel Dineen for a solo role for 2017. John Kiely looks set to be appointed the Limerick senior hurling manager. Kiely led the county’s Under-21 hurlers to All Ireland glory in 2015, and was a selector when the senior side won the Munster Championship in 2013. Shane O’Neill had been Kiely’s main competition to succeed TJ Ryan. The matter will be put to the County Board tonight.
