Wicklow senior football manager Mick O'Dwyer has expressed an interest in managing the Ireland International Rules team next year, despite being snubbed for the position in the past.
The Kerry native was overlooked for the job when he first expressed an interest back in the 1980s, but has affirmed his desire to be involved in the set-up next year.
"Well I suppose Central Council are the people that appoint the manager and I would have no say in that to be honest," he told Newstalk.
"I'm interested in anything that is going - I certainly would (like to manage Ireland)."
However, GAA president Christy Cooney says that a final decision on the manager of the side in 2010 will not be made until the New Year, with the Cork native not ruling out Boylan.
O'Dwyer managed Kerry to eight All-Ireland titles, and provided two of the panel to the International Rules side in 1998 with Glenn Ryan and Niall Buckley involved, having lost an All-Ireland final to Galway the previous September.
The International Rules Series failed to take place this year owing to what AFL chiefs described as "financial constraints and concerns over swine flu".
O'Dwyer, 73, recently underwent a hip replacement before committing to his role as Wicklow manager for 2010. He is also expected to have an operation on his ankle in the coming year.
