          The committee set up to appoint a successor to Denis Walsh has recommended that Jimmy Barry Murphy be appointed as the next Cork Senior Hurling manager for a three year term.  Barry Murphy has already held the position of Cork boss in the past and managed them to an All-Ireland SHC title in 1999, as well as provincial honours in 1999 and 2000.
          A statement issued on the Cork GAA website this afternoon confirmed that Barry Murphy is the preferred candidate and that his name will be put forward for ratification at a meeting of the Cork GAA County committee on 6th September.

          He was an ever-present during the Cork hurlers' three in-a-row of All-Ireland wins between 1976 and 1978;  adding five All-Star medals to his Celtic Crosses; while he added two further titles in 1984 and 1986, in addition to an All-Ireland SFC winners' medal in 1973.
          Following his last stint as Cork hurling supremo, Barry Murphy has continued to be active in the GAA within his own club St. Finbarr's and also through his involvement with the Cork development squads and various other initiatives.
