Cork's Search For A New Football Boss Looks To Have Taken Another Turn

Cork's Search For A New Football Boss Looks To Have Taken Another Turn

The position of Cork manager is still up for grabs. It was thought that Billy Morgan was likely to be reinstated as the manager for a third time, but now it seems that the former boss is no longer in consideration.

According to the Evening Echo, Peadar Healy, who has most recently been in charge of the Dr Crokes club in Killarney, has emerged as the favourite to succeed Brian Cuthbert.

The Naomh Abán clubman was reportedly interviewed in the last two days by the appointments committee, which has since placed him as the new lead contender for the role.

Healy's experience of working with the Cork footballers makes for positive reading. He served as one of the selectors to former boss Conor Counihan when they last won the All-Ireland in 2010 and it is believed that he was well received by the players.
