Ronan McCarthy to stay on as Cork Football manager for further two years

Ronan McCarthy has been reappointed as the Cork Senior Football manager for a further two years. 

Cian O’Neill, Sean Hayes, John Hayes, and Bobbie O’Dwyer will be his selectors.

Selector Gary O’Halloran is departing the set up for family reasons.

The Rebels had a disappointing 2018 under McCarthy and then suffered relegation from the National League in 2019.

Despite this, they did reach the Super 8s last year and won promotion from Division 3 before their famous victory over Kerry in the Munster Senior Football Championship in November of this year.

A last gasp Mark Keane goal saw McCarthy's side dump Kerry out of the championship and cut their 2020 short at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Speaking in relation to the reappointment, Chairperson of Cork County Committee Marc Sheehan thanked McCarthy for his efforts over the last three years while also looking ahead to the future.

“As we all hope for a return to the top table of Senior Inter-county football in the near future, on behalf of the board I wish to again recognise the incredible contribution of all involved, in particular Ronan, ahead of what we hope will be a productive two years."
