Counihan offered two-year extension
GAA:Conor Counihan was last night offered a two-year extension to his term as Cork senior football manager, although his exact intentions on whether to take up that offer remain somewhat unclear.
A meeting of the Cork County Board last night agreed Counihan should be afforded the position for another two years.
All the indications are he will take up the offer, and once he confirms that to the county board then no further vote is required. It means unless there is a sudden change of heart, Counihan will continue for a sixth season, even though this summer’s campaign ended on a disappointing note.
A statement from the Cork board last night read: “At its meeting of October 2nd, Cork County Board decided to invite outgoing senior football manager Conor Counihan to accept a further two-year term at the helm.
“Having won four National League titles, two McGrath Cups, two Munster Championships and an All-Ireland title during his term, Counihan has been one of the most successful Cork football managers ever.”
