James McCartan & Aidan O'Rourke

Well James certainly has the pedigree for it

It is best appointment we could have got at this late stage. He didnt have a great run with our minors though and lavery was able to win something with same bunch but the positives are that James is a Down man to the core and is not in it for the money. He will do everything in his power to ensure that they are competitive. I hope all the players will come on board and now put the work in....

If this is correct, and it's still an if, this is an excellent appointment and better late than never. Wee James has 2 Senior AII Irelands himself and was the most recent manager to get Down to an All Ireland final. He is a Down man through and through with a first class pedigree. He knows what is needed and wanted. He must be given time and resources with the full backing of the entire County. Things will not turn around over night but with a fair wind the next few years might be more satisfactory than hitherto appeared. An Dun Abu

It has now been confirmed and it is official. Onwards and Upwards

McCartan is a good man for the job, there has to be potential in Down. Ulster draw will be interesting.

Of course he's not in it for the money doing it for free

Good luck to Down footballers, and James McCartan. It would be great to see the red and black competing at the top level again.
