Current manager Mickey Ned O'Sullivan is in line to continue as Limerick senior football manager into next season.

Current manager Mickey Ned O'Sullivan is in line to continue as Limerick senior football manager into next season.

The Kerryman is set for his fourth year at the Shannonsiders' helm, following the confirmation that there are no other candidates in the running for the post.

He is expected to be ratified at the October meeting of the Limerick County Board.

Limerick officials met earlier this month with members of the outgoing management team, which include O'Sullivan, selectors Joe Reddington and Paddy Ives and coaches Donie Buckley and Michael McGeehan.

Limerick's footballers had an encouraging summer.

They were just seconds away from reaching the Munster final, before Cork reeled them back with two late goals in a dramatic semi-final.

They then scored one of the results of the year when they beat Meath by 4-12 to 4-03 in the first round of the All-Ireland qualifiers.

Teenage forward Ian Ryan, amongst others, was unearthed as a star for the future.

But O'Sullivan's charges exited the championship when they suffered a narrow loss to Kildare in their second round qualifier clash.
