ICONIC ROSCOMMON GOALKEEPER Shane Curran has been approached regarding the vacant management role with Laois, understands.

Curran, who won an All-Ireland club title with St Brigid’s at the age of 42, is said to be thinking over the move into a career as an inter-county manager.

Laois accepted the resignation of Justin McNulty early this week and now it appears as if they may once again look outside the county to install a new man at the helm.

However, from an official standpoint, the county remains at an extremely early stage in the search for McNulty’s replacement.

“Anything you hear is absolutely totally untrue,” a representative of the Laois County Board contested this afternoon.

“We accepted the resignation of Justin McNulty on Monday night and we will move forward to take the nominations from the clubs.”

Former Wexford boss Jason Ryan this morning ruled himself out of the running for the Laois job and will focus on his coaching capacity with Kildare for the foreseeable future.
