Seamus McEnaney has today been linked with a return to the role of Monaghan senior football manager.

'Banty' is the current Meath Senior Football manager, but after the Royals exit to Laois in their All-Ireland SFC Round 4 Qualifier on Saturday stated that he would take "at least five days" before deciding if he would continue in that position.

It was also Laois who ended Monaghan's involvement in the All-Ireland SFC this year after the O'Moore's claimed a two-goal win over the Farney County in Round 2.

After the game Eamon McEneaney decided to end his involvement as manager.

"I did indicate to the county Chairman that if we even had got to the Ulster Final and won it I wouldn't be going on for the next year or the year after," he said.

"It's a long-term job now and from what I have seen in the last 12 months I felt it would take someone else to take it on for the next three years.

"I'm just not in a position to do that. I have a family and my own lad (Jim) is playing Senior inter-county football for Louth.

"It would be nice to relax and go and support him and go to Monaghan games as well because between playing and managing I've been involved with them for 20 years."

Seamus McEnaney is one of six candidates in line for the position.

Fellow Monaghan natives Declan Brennan, Declan Loughman, Michael O’Dowd, Kevin Carragher and Bernie Murray are also in line for the role.

‘Banty’ previously managed Monaghan from 2005 to 2010 and revived the team’s fortunes in that time, reaching Ulster finals in 2007 and 2010.

Monaghan will contest Division 3 of the Allianz Football League in 2013.
