Kingston set to take charge of Cork again
By Cian O'Connell
The Executive of the Cork County Board is recommending the appointment of Kieran Kingston as manager of the senior hurling team Leeside.
A meeting will take place on Tuesday evening to ratify Kingston, who will include Ger Cunningham and Diarmuid O'Sullivan in his backroom team.
During his previous term in charge, Kingston guided a youthful Cork outfit to the Munster Hurling title in 2017.
Sarsfields' Pat Ryan is set to take charge of the Cork Under 20 team, while Donal Og Cusack is in line to take over the minors.
Sean Og O hAilpin and Tom Kenny will be involved in Cusack's backroom team.
County Chairperson Tracey Kennedy is encouraged about the future. “I am absolutely delighted with the outcome of the appointments process, and honoured to be putting these names before County Board on Tuesday night," Kennedy says.
"As I indicated at the outset, we did not want to rush into any decisions, and the length of the process is indicative both of the extent of our consultation and the number of excellent people who were willing to talk to us about Cork hurling. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of those who have agreed to serve as managers, coaches and selectors, and I truly believe that we now have a structure in place which will ensure that we can always secure the best people to lead Cork teams, on a clear pathway for both coaches and players, from underage all the way through to Senior.”
