McEnaney should heed alarm bells

I'm surprised that Seamus McEnaney hasn't thanked his backers in Meath for their support and quietly left the building.

Team management is difficult enough even when a county is united behind their man but history shows that where there's even the merest whiff of controversy at the outset, it tends to linger just below the surface waiting to emerge at the first pressure point.

The manner in which Eamonn O'Brien was voted out underlines the level of volatility in Meath so, even without being an outsider, McEnaney would know how precarious the position is.

There are still pockets of resistance to bringing in an outside manager which, allied with the messy manner the appointment procedure was handled, will have sounded the alarm bells for McEnaney.

Somewhat surprisingly, he has chosen to ignore them.
