Meyler steps down as Cork senior hurling team manager
John Meyler has stepped down as Cork senior hurling team manager after two years in charge.
Defeat to Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Hurling Quarter-Final marked the end of his agreed two-year term, and Meyler is not seeking an extension.
Cork GAA released the following statement this afternoon:
'The Cork GAA Executive has today confirmed that, following the completion of his two-year term, outgoing manager John Meyler is not seeking a further term as Cork Senior Hurling manager.
All in Cork GAA wish to thank John sincerely for his decades of service to GAA at all levels in the County.
In more recent times, this has included a two-year term with the Cork U15/U16 hurlers in 2015 & 2016 with the group that went on to win an All Ireland U17 title in 2017. John had by then been appointed Cork U21 manager, while also serving as a selector in Kieran Kingston's management team which secured Munster honours in the same year. This was followed by a two-year term as Cork Senior manager which included the retention of the Munster title in 2018.
County Chairperson Tracey Kennedy said "John has been an outstanding servant to Cork GAA in a variety of roles over many years, and I would like to thank him both personally and on behalf of Cork for all that he has done and, I am sure, will continue to do. We wish John, his selectors and backroom team all the best in their future endeavours and thank all involved for an immeasurable voluntary contribution over their two-year term."
A process will now be put in place for the appointment of a new manager.'
