Nominations closed at 1pm today for the vacant Mayo manager’s position and it’s been widely reported over the last few hours that James Horan’s name has been put forward to fill the role.
The Mayo News broke the story this morning on Twitter about James’ impending nomination and several sources had it by lunchtime – RTÉ, Irish Independent, Irish Times, Balls.ie. That piece in the Indo states that James was nominated for the position by his own club Ballintubber.
There’s been no confirmation as yet as to whether or not any other nomination for the post was received ahead of today’s deadline. There’s no word either on where the process goes from here or how long it’ll take to be finalised but if it turns out James is the only nominee you’d have to think this will be wrapped up sooner rather than later. Here’s hoping.
UPDATE: RTÉ have now reported (here) that Mike Solan was also nominated for the manager’s job ahead of today’s deadline. This means that the County Board now have a big decision to make, one that, for everyone’s sake, needs to sorted as quickly as possible.
