21 pictures that capture Jimmy Barry-Murphy's Cork GAA career

JBM stepped down as Cork senior hurling boss over the weekend.

JIMMY BARRY-MURPHY brought the curtain down on his second term in charge of the Cork senior hurlers on Saturday night.

The departure could bring an end to a glittering Cork career that has seen him enjoy huge success as a player and manager.

Last week Barry-Murphy was inducted into the GAA’s Hall of Fame after winning six All-Ireland senior medals and seven Allstar awards. He also lifted the Liam MacCarthy Cup as a manager in 1999.

If this is to be Barry-Murphy’s final Cork chapter, then he leaves behind a treasure trove of memories.
