Unity is essential in any county set-up, but it seems scarce in some places

Now Shane Curran is practically demanding that Kevin McStay (pictured), manager of St Brigid’s (his club), and Gay Sheeran be put in charge of the county’s team

There was a time when recently retired county footballers went away from that scene and played out the rest of their careers with their clubs, maybe acting as county selectors later on. That has changed in recent times.

Nowadays, there are numerous ex-players who are not content to be thankful for their county careers, but rather want to keep interfering with their county's current team and its manager.

In Roscommon, Frankie Dolan and Shane Curran, both All-Ireland club winners with St Brigid's, have made serious attacks on John Evans long before his term of office was due to be discussed at county board level, even though he achieved the rare distinction of bringing Roscommon straight from Division 3 to Division 1 in successive years.

Now Curran is practically demanding that Kevin McStay, manager of St Brigid's (his club), and Gay Sheeran be put in charge of the county's team.

Former Sligo player, Eamon O'Hara, availed of a Sunday Game spot last year to make an attack on the then-manager, Kevin Walsh, in the middle of the championship. And last week, O'Hara was out attacking current Sligo manager, Niall Carew, whose appointment for next year had only just been ratified.

Any Sligo people I have spoken to are very happy with how their county is progressing and their victory over Roscommon, which I was at, was very impressive.

Unity is essential among GAA people in any county set-up. It seems to be scarce in Roscommon and Sligo - and, I suspect, some other counties.
