Brendan Lynskey is one of four candidates challenging to become the new Galway hurling manager
Former All Star Brendan Lynskey has confirmed that he will be challenging Anthony Cunningham to become the new Galway hurling manager.
And with former selector Mattie Kenny and U-21 manager Johnny Kelly also confirming to Galway officials this week that they are bidding for the position, Cunningham faces a real challenge to remain in charge.
Galway hurling officials are confident of having their manager for 2015 in place by the end of September with interviews due to start in the coming weeks.
Galway hurling chairman Joe Byrne confirmed on Thursday that all four would be contesting the position.
Interviews are being lined up and prospective candidates will be asked to outline their management team.
Cunningham, whose three-year term ended with the qualifier loss to Tipperary, remains the favourite to hold on to the job.
Meanwhile, Galway football clubs have been asked to nominate candidates to succeed Alan Mulholland as senior manager. Former All-Star Kevin Walsh is the firm favourite to take over.
