Duo contenders for Limerick post

Tom McGlinchey and Maurice Horan have emerged as the two leading candidates for the Limerick football manager's post vacated by Mickey Ned O'Sullivan.

Five candidates have already been interviewed - former Clare manager John Kennedy, Drom-Broadford boss John Brudair, current Tipp selector John Cummins along with former Tipperary boss McGlinchey and this year's Limerick under 21 manager Horan.

It's believed that if McGlinchey gets the job, former Munster, Ireland and Lions rugby star Keith Wood will be included in his backroom team.

McGlinchey and Wood worked together with the Smith O'Brien's senior hurling team in Kilalloe last year, when Wood was involved in the conditioning and coaching of the side.
