I feel the time is right to part ways with the club. I would like to thank the players and backroom team for the huge success brought to the club since 2014. I wish everyone the best for the rest of the 2019 season and look forward to attending games as a supporter in the stands.
The news comes with Cork without a win in eight league games. They currently sit third from bottom of the Premier Division.
Their last league win - and there have been just three of them this season - was back in mid-March at home to Bohs.
Caulfield had been manager since the 2014 season. He led the side to a league and FAI Cup double in 2017. They also won the FAI Cup the previous year.
Cork will appoint an interim manager for the "foreseeable future" as they look to recruit a new first team boss.
