As speculation continues to grow about Michéal Donoghue returning as Galway senior hurling manager, Davy Fitzgerald has all but ruled himself out of the running.

Asked on Virgin Media's Ireland AM if he was set to replace Shane O'Neill in the Galway hotseat, the former Wexford boss replied: “Not that I know of anyway, so I’m not. I haven’t heard a word about it. Naturally, you’ll have rumours around different things and that’s fine.

“I’ve left Wexford six or seven weeks ago and I’m enjoying the break. I’m with my local club (Sixmilebridge) and that is actually all I’m concentrating on at the moment.

“I’ve been involved in hurling for 32 years. I played for 18 years, I’ve been managing the last 14 or whatever. It’s funny, it’s kind of different. I’ll have a summer maybe with no inter-county senior hurling and that and you know what maybe the break will do me no harm.”
