Former Offaly football manager Gerry Fahy has emerged as a candidate for the vacant Roscommon position.

Fahy was in charge of Offaly in 2004, a season that ended acrimoniously when he quit after being only marginally ratified (27-26) for a second year in charge.

He has since taken charge of the Galway minors and was a candidate for the vacant Galway job when Tomas O Flatharta was appointed in succession to Joe Kernan in 2010.

There was speculation last week that John O'Mahony may be poised to return to management and pick up with another Connacht team, but that is now thought to be wide of the mark.

Former Monaghan and Meath manager Seamus McEnaney appeared to express tentative interest in the position vacated by Des Newton some weeks ago, while Fergal O'Donnell, who guided the Rossies to a Connacht title in 2010, is understood not to be interested in a return.
