Wexford’s hopes of having a new senior football manager in place have been hit by a double setback.

School teacher Aidan O'Brien who has coached Good Counsel College to success was a prime target of the special committee.

O'Brien had also steered Horeswood to back-to-back senior football titles in 1995 and '96, but has not allowed his name go forward for the position vacated by the resignation of Paul Bealin after two terms in the post.

Now the special committee has extended their search outside the county but also met with a blank when they approached former Dublin star Mick Galvin.

Galvin has had some experience at club level in the capital but has not yet managed an inter-county side. Now he has decided not to follow in the footsteps of his former playing colleague, Bealin.

It has been a bleak few weeks for Wexford in their search. Following those setbacks the committee has no one immediately in the frame to take up the position.
