The Cork county executive have formally proposed Keith Ricken of the St Vincent’s club to succeed Ronan McCarthy as the new senior football manager on a two-year term.

Ricken will now go before the county committee meeting later this month for ratification, having previously managed to Cork under-20s to the All-Ireland title in 2019, plus a second Munster crown this year. He also managed Cork IT to their debut Sigerson Cup success in 2009.

McCarthy’s term was cut short last month by the county executive. Ricken brings on board a varied backroom team that is set to include Micheál Ó Cróinín (Naomh Abán), Ray Keane (MTU/St Finbarr’s), James Loughrey (St Brigid’s/Mallow), Barry Corkery (Éire Óg) and Des Cullinane (St Nicholas). Further coaches will be announced in the near future.
