Cork club takes a firm line

By John Campbell

Published 19/03/2009

Gerald McCarthy may have stood down as Cork hurling manager but the fall-out from the bitter dispute between himself and the 2008 hurling squad is still very much in evidence.

The Ballyhea club will now table a motion of 'no confidence' in the Cork county board executive at the next county board meeting.

Indeed, the club is now urging Cork chairman Jerry O'Sullivan, secretary Frank Murphy and the rest of the executive to step down in the wake of the five-month long hurling impasse.

Ballyhea chairman Noel O'Riordan is apprehensive that the county board on Monday voted to allow Central Council to appoint a three-man committee to find the new hurling boss to replace Gerald McCarthy.

O'Riordan feels that the board hierarchy has 'credibility' problems and is seeking a special Convention.
