Alan Kirby, who played alongside John Frost for Waterford and then Fingal after enjoying success at Longford Town and St Pats in between, could also be making his exit from ‘Sporting’ in the near future.
They are preparing for life without their wealthy backer Gerry Gannon, a number of whose business ventures are now in the hands of NAMA, and only nine players remain contracted to the club.
It is expected that they will go part-time next season and already Paul Cook, the manager of FAI Cup champions Sligo Rovers, has expressed an interest in bringing Kirby to the Showgrounds.
