CORK HURLING BOSS John Meyler has added former midfielder Tom Kenny to his backroom team for the remainder of the season. 

The Evening Echo reports that the two-time All-Ireland winner has been involved with the Rebels in training over the past week and is now formally part of the set-up. 

Kenny, who retired from inter-county hurling in 2013, coached in UCC over the last number of years. His decade-long career with the Rebels saw Kenny deliver Celtic Crosses in 2004 and 2005, in addition to four Munster crowns. 

A statement from Cork said: “Tom Kenny has joined the senior hurling management team and brings a wealth of experience to the CSH team. Tom will be assisting the coaching team.”

Cork face the McDonagh Cup final losers on 6/7 July in the All-Ireland preliminary quarter-final.
