After Neil McDonald’s shock departure from Limerick today to take up a role as assistant manager of Scunthorpe United we have put together a list of four potential candidates that could become the new Limerick manager
- Paul Doolin
In League of Ireland terms Doolin has had a very high level of success guiding Drogheda United to a league title and an FAI Cup along with two Setanta Cups. It does seem a perfect match if Doolin would be interested?
2. Harry Kenny
After guiding Bray Wanderers to an amazing 6th place finish last season given the circumstances, Kenny is a well regarded manager and will be in the running to get any big jobs that come up in the League of Ireland in the future.
3. Trevor Croly
The former Bray Wanderers & Shamrock Rovers manager who currently is assistant to Keith Long at Bohemians is another coach that stands out in League of Ireland through his coaching abilities and would certainly bring Limerick the solid defensive displays needed to stay in the League next year.
4. Pat Fenlon
Currently Waterford FC’s Director of Football, Pat ‘Nutsy’ Fenlon may be interested in getting back into management and Limerick could be a perfect opportunity to do so. The Dubliner is the League of Ireland’s most successful manager winning five league titles with Bohemians & Shelbourne.
