Dublin ladies’ football supremo Mick Bohan and former Sligo, Offaly and Westmeath boss Pat Flanagan are the early front-runners to succeed Anthony Cunningham as Roscommon manager.

Cunningham informed officials he would not be seeking a fifth season, prompting the Rossies to begin the hunt for a new boss with Flanagan – who guided Padraig Pearses to their first county SFC crown in 2019 – and Bohan among the names to be mentioned as possible replacements.

Another experienced manager, Liam Kearns, has also worked in the county recently with Clann na nGael. Others who could be considered include former Roscommon player Don Connellan, who steered Moycullen to an historic Galway title in 2020, and Liam Tully, who brought the Rossies’ U-20 side to an All-Ireland final in 2021.

Given his track record in both hurling and football, Cunningham’s availability is likely to see him linked to a host of jobs, including the Dublin hurling manager’s job. The former Galway hurler worked as the county’s coach under Pat Gilroy.

Cunningham joins Enda McGinley (Antrim), Seamus McEnaney (Monaghan), James McCartan (Down), Declan Bonner (Donegal), Shane Roche (Wexford), John Maughan (Offaly), Billy O’Loughlin (Longford), Andy McEntee (Meath) and James Horan (Mayo) in departing their roles since the end of their 2022 campaigns.
Keith Ricken has also stepped down but he had handed over duties to John Cleary on a temporary basis during the season.
