To give credit where its due, he's probably as qualified as anyone within the county to take it on.
Hes had club success with Mount Sion and James Stephen in KK, Fitzgibbon Cups with WIT and been an intercounty selector with Waterford Clare and Wexford. You can't say he hasn't served his time.

His coaching experience isn't in question. The problem is his man management skills! The polar opposite to McGrath. He will need good selectors around him is all I will say

With all the talk surrounding Walsh Park, Louth GAA also in redevelopment of a stadium opting to move out near Dundalk IT.

"Louth looking to build an €8m, 12,000-capacity stadium that will include four dressing-rooms, floodlighting and a hospitality area, as well as media and medical facilities close to DKIT."

He didn't win anything with James Stephens in Kilkenny
Did he serve as selector with Clare. Don't think he did.

The type of hurling he will more than likely have us playing is what frustrates. Since Justin we haven't had an attack minded manager and now looks like more of the same.

Eddie Brennan gone to Laois. Would he have been a viable option?

I don’t see how Brennan would be more qualified than Fanning or Seán Power. Fanning involved in a number of senior intercounty set ups so it’s a logical step for a local. Seán Power has won a minor and U21 which Brennan hasn’t done.
Brennan was an incredible player but he has a lot to prove as a manager. He could be a good fit to reinvigorate Laois however I don’t think he would have been the man for us at this point.

Was Pa Kearney the ex panel member who was in a car crash or something and had to retire ???

At least we have a management team in place and they can start planning now. It was a shame about Ryan and Kenny but the travelling would be too much
