Jimmy Barry Murphy's List Of Honours Is Something Very Special

Jimmy Barry Murphy's List Of Honours Is Something Very Special
By Gary Reilly

Cork hurling is once again without JBM at the helm. An All Ireland quarter final defeat may not have been the way he should have bowed out but he certainly goes with every last ounce of respect still in tact.

As Cork fans, and hurling fans across the country will tell you, JBM's influence on the game can't be overestimated. Just this week he was inducted into the GAA Hall of Fame and it's rather easy to see why. The list of honours from just his playing career is simply astonishing.

Now, he has stepped down as Cork manager for the second time and the kind of tributes that have been paid to the great man are a measure of just how much of colossal figure he's been to Cork and to Irish sport in general.

It's going to take an awful lot for Cork hurling to replace even a fraction of the influence JBM has had over the past number of years. A true legend.
