Despite the fact that James Horan is still in the hunt, both bookies and punters are of the view that the appointment of Stephen Rochford as the next Mayo manager is a near certainty.
Rochford has helped create an imperious club side in Galway in the last three years.
Corofin have won county titles with great regularity over the past couple of decades, but since Rochford came on board, their dominance has become borderline oppressive.

He is hoping to retain Donie Buckley and strength and conditioning coach Barry Solan (who also works for Arsenal).
