Cian O’Neill has been appointed as a coach for the Cork Senior Football team.
The former Kildare manager will work alongside manager Ronan McCarthy for the 2020 season. He stepped down as manager of his native county back in July after four seasons in the role.
Cork GAA made the announcement on Tuesday morning, releasing a statement which reads:
“Cork GAA is pleased to announce the appointment of Cian O’Neill as Cork Senior Football coach for the 2020 season. Cian will work under manager Ronan McCarthy, alongside selectors Gary O’Halloran and Sean Hayes. We are delighted to welcome Cian on board given his extensive experience as former Kildare manager, as a former coach to a number of Senior inter-county teams in both football and hurling and of course, as Head of Department of Sports, Leisure and Childhood Studies at Cork Institute of Technology.
“Also, joining the Senior Football management team as S&C coach will be Kevin Smith, working under newly appointed High-Performance manager Aidan O’Connell. Kevin is a former head of S&C at Stade Français Rugby Club and is currently completing a PhD at Cork Institute of Technology.”
