Rock Confirms He Will Not Put Name Forward For 'Most Prestigious Job In Hurling'

Rock Confirms He Will Not Put Name Forward For 'Most Prestigious Job In Hurling'
By PJ Browne Updated

Kieran Kingston's decision to step down as Cork hurling manager came as a major surprise at the weekend. It came after a championship campaign which saw renewed hope and vigour for Cork Hurling.

Kingston had been offered a new two-year term by the Cork county board but opted not take it. He yesterday told the Irish Examiner that the major factor in his decision was work and family commitments. Inter-county management, he believes, 'amounts to a second full-time job'.

One man who will not be succeeding Kingston is Diarmuid O'Sullivan. The Rock had been part of Kingston's backroom team as a selector.

On Wednesday morning, O'Sullivan tweeted a statement saying that he will not be putting his name forward for the role.

While it is a privilege to have my name linked to what I'd consider the most prestigious job in hurling by most media outlets it is not my intention to put my name forward at this time. Good luck to the new man #makecorkgreatagain

John Meyler is currently favourite to succeed Kingston. Meyle was manager of the Cork U21 team which lost this year's Munster final to Limerick. He was also a selector under Kieran Kingston.
