Provisional Date Set For Unveiling Of New Dublin Manager

The process of finding Jim Gavin’s successor as Dublin senior football boss began last night in Parnell Park.

Following the meeting, it was confirmed that the county board hope to have unveiled a new manager by December, 12.

“There is no white smoke as such,” stated Dublin County Board chairman, Seán Shanley told the Irish Independent.

“All we have done is to propose a sub-committee to interview potential candidates. And that sub-committee has to be approved by the county committee this Thursday night.

“So until that happens, we are not in a position to release the names of the people on the sub-committee. If the county committee agree to give us the go-ahead, we will take it from there.

“Ideally we would like to have everything done and dusted before our annual convention on December 12,” Shanley added.

Jim Gavin sensationally stepped down on Saturday after seven years in charge. Under his tutelage, the Dubs change the landscape of Gaelic football with a record of just one defeat in 48 Championship games to go alongside six All-Ireland titles and a first-ever five-in-a-row.

Among the frontrunners to replace the Clondalkin man include Dessie Farrell, who has worked alongside the majority of the panel, former manager Pat Gilroy and ladies senior boss Mick Bohan.
