Anthony Cunningham

  • Former Galway boss Anthony Cunningham has been installed as the favourite to become the new Dublin Senior Hurling manager.

    Pat Gilroy stepped down last night, citing work commitments for his decision.

    Having worked as one of Gilroy's selectors Cunningham could provide an easy transition.

    All Ireland winning Cuala manager Mattie Kenny is also said to be in the running for the role.

  • Reports today are linking Anthony Cunningham with two vacant inter-county managerial positions.

    The former Galway hurling manager has emerged as a possible successor to Kevin McStay, who stood down as Roscommon football manager in September-  that's according to The Irish Sun.

    The Rossies have had no joy in finding a replacement for Kevin McStay since his resignation, with Armagh’s Aidan O’Rourke pulling out of the race recently, and now Cunningham, who was a selector with Dublin's hurlers this year, looks to be a front runner after having managed St Brigid’s two county titles and a Connacht crown in 2006.

    Meanwhile, a report in the Irish News indicates that Antrim have “sounded out” Anthony Cunningham and ex-Dublin boss Anthony Daly to take over the county’s senior hurlers for 2019.

     

     

  • At a meeting of Roscommon GAA held yesterday evening Anthony Cunningham was ratified as manager of the Roscommon Senior Football team.

    Anthony Cunningham is no stranger to Roscommon GAA having previously managed the Roscommon senior hurling team and the St Brigid’s Football team for three years winning two Connacht titles.

    Anthony managed Garrycastle in Westmeath to an All-Ireland Club Football Final and he also managed the Galway Senior Hurling team from 2011 until 2016 reaching two All-Ireland Finals.  

    The process to select a manager commenced on September 10th when the committee was ratified by Roscommon Co Board and given the mandate to recruit a new Senior Team Manager. The committee consisted of Chairman Seamus Sweeney. Secretary Brian Carroll and Treasurer of the county board David O’Connor and they were joined by Niall Carty former Roscommon Senior team captain and Ciarán Heneghan a former Roscommon senior footballer. Tonight, they proposed the name of Anthony Cunningham to the clubs of Roscommon which was agreed by the clubs.

  • Roscommon appear to be on the verge of appointing a new senior football manager.

    An emergency county board meeting has been called for tonight, with the vacancy the only item on the agenda.

    The Rossies have been without a manager since Kevin McStay stepped down in September.

    Last month saw preferred candidate Aidan O'Rourke withdraw from the race at the last minute.

    It's widely touted that former Galway hurling manager Anthony Cunningham could be appointed tonight.
