The former Kerry footballer Mike Quirke is reportedly being lined up to take the reins as Laois senior football manager.
Quirke, who will leave his current role as the manager of Kerins O’Rahillys as a result, has tasted All-Ireland glory on four different occasions during his playing career – which lasted between the years 2003 and 2011.
According to reports from Laois Today, the Kerry man will be formally suggested for ratification on Monday and will likely be confirmed to succeed John Sugrue in the role quite soon.
Sugrue departed the position at the end of July after a period of two years in charge, a pair of years that saw him achieve promotion on two separate occasions.
In his position as manager of Kerins O’Rahillys, Quirke has been able to lead the side to back-to-back Kerry SFC semi-final appearances in the years 2017 and 2018.
Next year, Laois will play their football in Division 2 of the Allianz League and will no doubt be buoyed by the introduction of a fresh approach at their helm.
