MONAGHAN remain on the hunt for a new senior football manager and the Gaelic Life understands that Oisin McConville is the main target.
The 2002 All-Ireland winner is currently in charge of Inniskeen while he is also the joint manager of the Armagh u-20s along with former teammate Barry O’Hagan.
It is understood that the Monaghan County Board want to team the Crossmaglen native up with ex-Down coach Mark Doran, although the Gaelic Life also understands that McConville isn’t interested in taking the step up to senior inter-county management.
Doran is currently involved with Ballybay along with Jerome Johnston and spent three seasons in the Mourne County with Paddy Tally.
Other contenders on the managerial shortlist are former Farney players Owen Lennon and Vinny Corey.
Seamus McEnaney stepped down after Monaghan’s defeat to Mayo this season after two years of his second stint.
Monaghan hope to have a management team in place before the club championship kicks off in August.
