Eamon O’Shea Rules Himself Out Of Galway Job

One of the highest profile managers currently out of a coaching role has ruled himself out of taking the job as Galway hurling manager. Eamon O’Shea, who is based in Galway with work in NUIG as a professor of Economics, ended his three year tenure as manager of Tipperary with an All-Ireland semi-final loss to the Tribesmen in August.

O’Shea was a universally popular figure in the Tipp camp, and this would certainly be an attractive prospect for the Galway hurlers.

However, he was quick to pour water on these flames.

The favourite for the job is Mattie Kenny, who was involved as a selector in the 2012 campaign when they won Leinster before losing to Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Final replay. Kenny is currently involved with Cuala, who won the Dublin championship and are gearing up for a Leinster Final against Oulart-the Ballagh on Sunday week.

Kenny lost out on a vote to become manager 12 months ago by the smallest of margins.

Anthony Cunningham stepped down from the role on Monday, after losing the confidence of the players.
