Earlier in the week it was reported that Joe Quaid had stepped down as Limerick Senior Camogie manager and from this decision it was rumoured that Quaid had thrown his name into the ring for Offaly Senior hurling manager for 2016.
Quaid confirmed his desire to be in charge of the ‘Faithful County’ to the Irish Examiner but is facing stiff competition from at least three other candidates including Kilcormac Killoughey manager Danny Owens and former boss (2008-2011) and Offaly legend Joe Dooley. The third candidate is believed to be recently resigned Kerry manager Eamonn Kelly who has made huge strides for hurling in ‘The Kingdom’.
Speaking to the Examiner Quaid said
“They are probably as low as they have been in a few years, but I feel there’s a good opportunity there to push them in the right direction, A proposal has gone into them and it’s a wait and see situation now. I can’t say much more than that.”
Tipperary’s 2010 All-Ireland winning manager Liam Sheedy is the man in charge to find Brian Whelahan’s successor.
