It may not be one of the most glamorous, or most sought-after jobs in the GAA world yet the time is drawing near when a new manager to the Meath hurling team will have to be appointed - and the earlier the better.
Club have to have their nominations in by Friday, 23rd August and then the decision will have to be made.
The Co Board could do a themselves, and the game in the county, a lot of good by looking at either Longwood coach Nick Weir or Kiltale manager Martin Ennis for the role.
Both mentors have shown impressive managerial skills in getting the best out of their teams. Ennis won the Jubilee Cup with Kiltale last year and has turned the team into a formidable force, no-one has managed to halt so far in this season's campaign.
Weir’s achievements are, arguably, even greater. He has transformed a group of players, who struggled in the senior grade, into a team who could win the championship this year.
It’s also encouraging to see that Meath football manager Mick O’Dowd will talk to club delegates in the Co Board meeting in September.
O’Dowd made some wrong decisions in first year as Meath manager (the omission of Jamie Queeney from the championship panel) was one.
It would be extraordinary if he didn’t make one or two errors considering it was his first year in charge - and he’s on a very sharp learning curve.
However, the Skryneman made far more right choices than wrong ones and that’s one of the reasons why the county can look ahead with real confidence.
Yet there are questions delegates need to answer and O'Dowd, to his credit, is ready and willing to field any queries.
