Pascal Kellaghan has ruled out the possibility of managing Offaly in the future.

The Rhode manager is busy preparing his side for a county SFC final against Ferbane on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking to the Midland Tribune, Kellaghan revealed that he is ‘relieved’ not to have got the job before John Maughan took over.

“It is something that I would have loved to have done but I think that ship has sailed. It doesn’t really interest me anymore,” said Kellaghan.

“I don’t have that ambition. I have been hurt. It doesn’t keep me awake at night but I think I have given Offaly enough over the years to be respected that little bit more.

“If Tommy Byrne (Offaly GAA chairman) walked in here now, I would chat to him. Life moves on but I haven’t an ambition to manage Offaly at nearly any cost which is disappointing because it would have been a big ambition for me.”
