CORK GAA CHIEFS have officially installed Leeside legend Jimmy Barry Murphy as the county’s next senior hurling manager.

The St Finbarr’s clubman was unanimously approved by county board delegates and has been given a three-year term to rebuild the Rebels.

Selectors Kieran Kingston, Johnny Crowley, Ger Cunningham and Seánie McGrath will join JBM’s new set-up.

Barry Murphy is hurling royalty in Cork and will be seen as a unifying figure. As a player, he won All-Ireland medals in football and hurling and previously managed Cork from 1996 to 2000, leading them to an All-Ireland win in 1999.

Elsewhere, fellow Barr’s man Donal O’Grady has reportedly left the Limerick set-up after one-year in charge while in Waterford Davy Fitzgerald says he will not continue as Deise boss.
