Former Roscommon goalkeeper Shane Curran is one of the front runners for the vacant Fermanagh job with a candidate's name set to be put up for ratification as early as tonight.

Ryan McMenamin stepped down from the role last month after two seasons in charge.

Former Roscommon U20 manager Curran was one of two candidates interviewed yesterday with the other being former Erne County player Kieran Donnelly who was also part of Peter Canavan’s Fermanagh management team previously.

Curran is currently the manager of Westmeath club side Caulry and included in his coaching team there is Fermanagh native Owen Mooney. Mooney is currently the Learning and Games Development Coordinator for Dublin GAA who will also act as a selector should Curran be appointed.

Two-time All-star Barry Owens and Pat Cadden would also act as selectors while Leon Carters, Stephen Jackson and Ferghal O’Connor complete the management team.

Donnelly, meanwhile, has a proposed backroom team that includes Tyrone coach Fergal Owens.

Brookeborough native Donnelly has a wealth of coaching experience at club and schools level and took Scotstown to the 2018 Ulster Club final where they lost out to Gaoth Dobhair.

There had been speculation that the successful candidate would be ratified next Monday, but RTÉ Sport understands that county officials are due to meet tonight to propose a candidate.
