Cork look to names from past All-Ireland victories to propose new hurling boss

County chairman Ger Lane and secretary Frank Murphy will also be part of the committee.

THREE ALL-IRELAND medallists will feature in the new sub-committee set up to propose a new Cork senior hurling manager.

Former county hurlers Charlie McCarthy, Seán O’Gorman and Pat Mulcahy will form part of the committee along with county chairman Ger Lane and secretary Frank Murphy.

Last month, a similarly-styled committee was established to find a new football manager.

St Finbarr’s clubman McCarthy captained Cork to the 1978 All-Ireland, one of five medals he won, while he was joint-manager with Johnny Clifford for the 1985 All-Ireland minor win and was senior manager in 1988.

O’Gorman, of Milford, was part of the successful 1990 side, winning an All-Star that year and 1993, while he was county U21 manager in the last decade. Mulcahy (Newtownshandrum), won All-Irelands in 2004 and ’05 and is currently the coach of the Cork IT Fitzgibbon Cup team.

Chairman Lane paid tribute to the departing Barry-Murphy. “Jimmy stands for everything that the GAA does. He’s a fantastic person and he gave tremendous service, we were honoured to have him as our manager,” he said.
