Interviews for the vacancy took place this week and according to local reports, the job is O'Rourke's if he wants it. The 2002 Armagh All-Ireland winning defender previously managed Louth between 2012 and '14 and was a selector with both Kildare and Down.He also managed Queen's University in this year's Sigerson Cup.
Former Sligo and Waterford boss Niall Carew and ex-Rossie forward Nigel Dineen have already ruled themselves out of the running to replace Kevin McStay, who stepped down after three years in charge on September 5 last.
