Wait for Galway job hopefuls

Galway officials are not expected to reveal the identity of their new football manager until next week at the earliest.

Interviews were due to begin on Wednesday night to find Joe Kernan's successor, but as a member of the interview panel is unavailable, the five candidates - including this year's minor manager Gerry Fahy - will not be vetted until early next week.

The county's football secretary Seamus O'Grady remains confident, however, that the new manager will be in place within the next week. The committee will meet this week to decide on the process. None of the interviews have been conducted yet, but I expect that we will complete the process over a couple of days next week," he said.

Besides Falny, former Westmeath boss Tomas O Flatharta is also believed to be the frontrunner for the position, with former Mayo midfielder Pat Fallon, Matt Duggan and former All-Ireland winning selector Pete Warren also in the running.
