Peadar Healy has been confirmed as Cork's new senior football manager for a two-year term.

Healy, a Glengarriff-based garda from the Naomh Aban club, is a former selector to Conor Counihan and has been in charge of Dr Crokes for the past year.

He could be assisted in a coaching capacity by former Cork defender Paudie Kissane who has worked with the Clare footballers in recent years and has recently been appointed as part of a high-profile minor backroom team. Healy was a selector when Cork won the All-Ireland title in 2010 with Kissane involved.

Current Castlehaven coach James McCarthy has also been linked with a potential backroom team under Healy. Brian Cuthbert stepped down in the days after their qualifier loss to Kildare in July.

“On behalf of the County Board, I would like to wish Peader all the best in his new position," said county board chairman Gerard Lane.

I would also like to thank all the candidates who expressed an interest in the position, and also the members of the appointments committee for their endeavours.”
