PEADAR HEALY HAS brought his spell as Cork senior football manager to an end in the wake of tonight’s All-Ireland football qualifier loss to Mayo.

Healy has been in charge for the last two years and saw Cork’s 2017 campaign draw to a close at the Gaelic Grounds.

Cork lost out to Kerry in the Munster final earlier this month under Healy’s watch after earlier provincial wins over Waterford and Tipperary.

Healy had assumed the managerial reins for the start of the 2016 season after previously working as a coach during Conor Counihan’s All-Ireland winning tenure.

He suffered a difficult 2015 campaign with Cork relegated from Division 1 of the league and losing out to Tipperary in the Munster semi-final. They responded in the qualifiers last summer before bowing out against Donegal in Round 4, the same stage they exited the championship at tonight.
