Some doubts over Kevin Ryan's mooted re-appointment in Antrim

Kevin Ryan was interviewed for the vacant Antrim senior hurling post but doubts remain over whether a return is the right thing for the Saffrons Picture: Margaret McLaughlin.

KEVIN Ryan was interviewed for the vacant Antrim senior hurling managerial post last night as he is keen to make a dramatic return to the job he left three years ago – but doubts remain in the county over re-appointing the Waterford native.

Ryan's three-year tenure ended badly in 2015 when the Saffrons were relegated from Division 1B and failed to make an impact in the Leinster SHC round robin format.

While Ryan made a lasting impression on some of the senior members of the Antrim squad, securing the support of the clubs could be a stumbling block.

Slaughtneil manager and Ballycastle native Michael McShane ruled himself out of contention for the post, as did St John's man Michael Johnston so there doesn't appear a great deal of interest in the position that was vacated by Terence McNaughton and Dominic McKinley at the end of the season.
