Cork management vacancies remain but County Board 'hope to have something in the next few days'

No white smoke from tonight’s meeting on Leeside.

CORK ARE STILL without senior football or hurling managers after tonight’s County Board meeting failed to bring any big announcements on the topic.

There had been speculation last week that one or both of the posts — vacant since Brian Cuthbert departed as football boss in July and Jimmy Barry-Murphy stepped down from the hurling role in August — may have been filled.

However, chairman Ger Lane was only able to inform delegates that the processes were ongoing: “They’re still being progressed but we’d hope to have something in the next few days.”

No delegates sought any further information on the work of the two sub-committees established to fill the vacancies, but Lane was asked to clarify if the incoming managers would be picking their own selectors.

“That is and has been the case,” Lane replied. “I’ve heard the rumours being circulated that it’s not but there’s no truth to them.”
