Alan Mulholland has admitted that he would be interested in the Galway football manager’s job under the right circumstances and as far as the bookies are concerned its a done deal.
The Salthill/Knocknacarra clubman is currently the outright favourite to land the role at 1/10 after leading the Tribesmen to the All-Ireland U21 crown earlier in the year and to an All-Ireland minor title in 2007.
Former All-Ireland winning midfielder Kevin Walsh, who led Sligo to a Connacht final appearance last year, is also expected to be shortlisted for the job but it looks like the U21 winning manager will get the job.
“I was hoping to remain as U21 manager next year and defend our crown. That was my focus and I was not expecting to have to deal with any issue about the senior job,” Mulholland said in the Irish Daily Star.
“I enjoyed a very good working relationship with Tomas and he and his management were extremely cooperative and helpful to us through the year and that played a big part in our success. If I’m nominated I will give it consideration, but we will just have to wait and see what happens.”
