McGeeney in demand

Kildare GAA chiefs will look to secure Kieran McGeeney's services as manager of the senior footballers "sooner rather than later".

County chairman Padraig Ashe has reiterated his desire to retain McGeeney's talents, after the Mullaghbawn man's three-year term came to an end with Kildare's controversial All-Ireland semi-final loss to Down last Sunday.

"The dust has to settle a bit and then we'll see where it goes, but I haven't changed what my intention has been since I came in as chairman and I have made that clear to Kieran as well," said Ashe yesterday.

"We will sit down and see if there are some issues that need to be discussed and ironed out, but I have always wanted Kieran to stay, and that was from before we went on this great run."

Meanwhile, Anthony Daly is expected to confirm to Dublin officials this week that he will remain on as hurling manager.

Daly may seek to extend his term to two further years.
