Seamus McEnaney is one of six nominated for the vacant Monaghan management position.

McEnaney is to decide on his future with Meath over the next 48 hours with strong expectation that he won't be seeking an extension to his two-year term.

Under the terms of the agreement he reached with Meath County Board in November 2010, McEnaney was given a three-year term with a review after the second year.

McEnaney managed Monaghan between 2005 and 2010 and is joined by Declan Brennan, a former selector and manager of local side Clontibret and former players Declan Loughman, Michael O'Dowd, Kevin Carragher and Bernie Murray.

The outgoing manager Eamonn McEneaney stepped down after the recent defeat to Laois.

Meanwhile, Waterford officials are monitoring Jason Ryan's position as Wexford football team manager.

Waterford are on the hunt for a new boss following the recent departure of John Owens and will approach Ryan should he decide to leave the Slaneysiders.

Cork-born Ryan is considering his future following the All-Ireland SFC qualifier defeat against Tipperary.

Elsewhere, the prospect of possible retirements from the Waterford senior hurling panel was not discussed in the immediate aftermath of last Sunday's All-Ireland SHC quarter-final defeat to Cork.

Much of the speculation will focus on 39-year-old Tony Browne, while Seamus Prendergast, Eoin Kelly and Eoin McGrath are other long-serving stars who may consider their options.

Waterford County Board chairman Tom Cunningham confirmed last night: "Nobody mentioned retirement in the dressing-room."

Cunningham also confirmed that manager Michael Ryan will see out of the second year of a two-year term.
