Peadar Healy Steps Down As Cork Manager Following Mayo Heartbreak

Peadar Healy Steps Down As Cork Manager Following Mayo Heartbreak
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Cork's single-point, extra time loss to Mayo on Saturday evening was Peadar Healy's last in charge of the county's footballers as he has resigned from his post following that painful defeat.

The All Ireland quarter final was a great watch for the neutrals, but while Mayo fans would have been watching the final stages through the gaps in their fingers, Cork's narrow 0-27 to 2-20 loss was a blow for the Rebel County having managed to pull themselves back from a deficit that was as large as seven points at one stage.

Healy informed his players shortly after the final whistle that he would no longer be in charge.

Healy's decision to step down ends his two-year stint as the Cork football manager, and he does so in a similar fashion to James Horan who resigned in the Gaelic Grounds kitchen after Mayo's extra-time loss to Kerry a few years ago.

Despite the spirit and fight that his side showed on Saturday, the performance was ultimately not enough to convince him to stay on.
