Maybe, something like this is just what Wexford football needs to reignite a missing passion…
According to reports in the Irish Examiner, Kerry great and former high-profile GAA star Paul Galvin is in contention for the vacant Wexford football managerial job.
Others linked to the job are former Louth boss Colin Kelly, ex-Dublin minor manager Paddy Christie and Wexford native Ciarán Deely, who recently managed the London footballers.
Overall though, Galvin is one of the suprises that few could have guessed to be in contention when Paul McLoughlin left his post at the end of Wexford’s 2019 campaign.
However, in relation to previous managerial experience, Galvin is lacking. The Kerry native’s managerial experience extends only to a stint withTG4’s Underdogs and St Brendan’s secondary school in Killarney when he was involved in teaching.
With Paul Galvin’s link to the Wexford managerial position, one must pose an important question though. Should Wexford aim to rebuild over a number of years? Or to spark interest, which could only last one or two years?
