Carr and Kane set for Mourne job

DJ Kane and Ross Carr are expected to be installed as the new Down senior football management team within the next 10 days.

The former Down All-Ireland heroes have been linked with the job for several weeks although James McCartan is also believed to have been in contention.

It's now understood McCartan has said that he is not interested in the job.

Ironically, Kane's club Magheracloone defeated Carr's Castleblayney in last weekend's Monaghan SFC semi-final.

Previous boss Paddy O'Rourke was voted out of office by the Down GAA clubs in early August and subsequent attempts by a number of players to ask clubs to reappoint the Burren club-man came to nothing.

A five-man sub-committee was delegated to search for a new boss after O'Rourke's departure.

County chairman Jerry Quinn, county secretary Donal McCormack and Central Council Delegate Dan McCartan have been joined on the sub-committee by Darragh Cross official Liam Murray and Seamus Ryan from the Clann na Banna outfit.

Carr previously managed the Down minors and is now in charge of Castleblayney while O'Kane has been looking after the fortunes of Magheracloone.

McCartan guided Burren to Sunday's Down football final where they were well beaten by Mayobridge.
