New Cork Hurling Manager To Be Announced In Coming Days

Cork are set to announce their new hurling manager in just a matter of days, according to reports on Saturday afternoon.

The Irish Examiner have revealed that the man set to succeed Jimmy Barry-Murphy will be Tracton clubman Kieran Kingston. The former Cork corner forward was a selector and coach under his predecessor but will now take the reigns following a meeting with the Cork appointment subcommittee on Saturday.

Kingston has vast coaching and playing experience from his time with Tracton and Cork, winning two All-Ireland’s with the Rebel county as a player while lining out in red and white between 1985 and 1990.

Kingston takes over from Barry-Murphy, who led Cork to their first Munster title since 2006 in 2014 but the All-Ireland will be the prize with which Kingston’s success will be measured against, with the county having been starved of national glory for ten years now.
