Roscommon are to begin steps towards appointing a successor to Val Daly as the county's senior football manager next week.

A four-man committee, led by current county board chairman Michael Maguire, is expected to start formally interviewing all candidates in the coming days.

Anti-Rule 42 campaigner Tommy Kenoy, a former county board chairman and Castlerea manager, is understood to be in the running after the nominations process.

Former Caltra manager Pat Doherty and Pat Doorey, a selector under Daly, could also net the job.

The next few weeks will be a busy time for the Roscommon county board as it comes to terms with its high-profile €1.4m debt.

An EGM had been set up to discuss the debt amongst club delegates and the board but it was postponed due to one of the board's top officers being on holidays.

The meeting will now go ahead in two weeks' time, possibly to help turn the spotlight on Sunday's Roscommon county football final between south county neighbours St Brigid's and Padraig Pearses.

For Pearses it will be a particularly historic day as they have not appeared in a senior final since 1968.
