There’s been a frothy bubble of speculation over the past 24 hours about the vacant manager’s position in Donegal and whether or not James Horan might be going for it. Originally a 33/1 outsider for the post, a number of large wagers yesterday on the recently departed Mayo manager have seen him backed down to 11/4 favourite with Boylesports for the job. Paddy Power, meanwhile, are quoting him at 7/2, with Rory Gallagher their favourite at 10/3.
The Irish Independent have a story on this, The Score have too, as have Hogan Stand and that noted newshound Brian Carthy even managed a mention of it on RTÉ’s sports bulletin on the radio this morning. But it’s still all nonsense, of course, and today’s Irish News appears to confirm this, as they have some direct quotes from James saying that he won’t be going for the job. So now you know.
