If The Deputy was trying to talk himself out of his bainisteoir’s bib in the aftermath of a second disappointing year in charge (which, in fairness to him, he may not have been but the way he was hedging his bets in that after-match interview made it sound suspiciously like he was), County Secretary Sean Feeney has now made it clear that the County Board isn’t interested in instituting a heave against him. In contrast to Johnno’s Jesuitical post-match twisting and turning, Feeney was refreshingly direct and to the point, saying that:
“John was appointed for three years without a review and we’re happy to see that through. That was the agreement and there’s no move against John. He’s there and if he wants the job, it’s his.”
That’s it, then: it’s over to you now, Deputy.
