Frank Murphy’s Reign As Cork County Board Secretary Extended

In news coming out of the Cork County Board’s delegate meeting tonight, Frank Murphy’s reign as secretary on the board is set to continue into its 46th year. 

This will come as a shock to most followers of Cork GAA as just a matter of weeks ago it had been widely reported that Murphy was finally prepared to step down from the position this year. A replacement process had been put in place to find his successor but those plans will now be void.

There was speculation throughout the past week that Murphy would indeed be extending his stay on the board because a proposal on the appointment of his successor was to be circulated to clubs ahead of tonight’s meeting but that never came to light.

At tonight’s meeting, members of the media were asked to leave before Frank was ratified for a further year as secretary.

While Chairman of the county board Ger Lane was asked by one club delegate why the replacement process to find Murphy’s successor did not unfold as had been originally planned, Lane responded that all would be revealed at a segment of the meeting which would not be privy to the media.
