The Fermanagh GAA board has set up a review committee to look into the county's senior football team which has had a hugely disappointing 2011 season.
Manager John O'Neill's first year in charge has seen a number of players making themselves unavailable for the county squad for a variety of reasons.
An Ulster SFC hammering by Derry was then followed by an embarrassing qualifier defeat against London.
News of the review will increase doubts over O'Neill's future in the job.
A Fermanagh GAA committee said that the review committee would report back to the county board in "due course".
Last week, it was revealed that Fermanagh GAA fund-raising body Club Eirne had withdrawn its support from the county's football team.
The fund-raising body was set up by Fermanagh supporters after the county's surprise run to the All-Ireland Football semi-finals in 2004.
Most counties now have a similar fund-raising body, which while not necessarily part of county boards, invariably has links with counties' official structures.
Club Eirne has provided around £400,000 of support to the county team since it was set up.
Meanwhile, Liam Bradley looks set to stay on as Antrim football manager.
Antrim county chairman Jim Murray has said that Bradley has agreed to remain in the job for another year.
The Antrim board also want senior hurling boss Dinny Cahill to stay on for a third season.
