Ray Dempsey has emerged as a potential candidate to become the next Limerick football manager.
The Irish Independent is reporting that the Knockmore boss, having come up short in his recent bid to succeed James Horan in his native Mayo, has now been linked with the vacancy in Limerick.
Now it appears Dempsey could be in line for the Limerick post vacated by Billy Lee back in August, although it’s unclear just how far advanced discussions are at this stage.
Lee stepped down after six seasons, despite leading Limerick to promotion from Division 3 last spring and then reaching this year’s Munster final, where they suffered a chastening defeat to eventual All-Ireland champions Kerry.
When contacted, a Limerick GAA spokesperson had no managerial update to report other than that a sub-committee was established three weeks ago to source a new manager, and a full county board meeting is due to take place next Tuesday.
