Cork Ladies and Camogie players boost huge talent in both small ball and big ball sports. Last year Cork women were crowned All-Ireland Champions in both codes with Cork ladies winning their fifth title in a row while camogie players won back to back titles.
This week Cork Senior Camogie manager Paudie Murray revealed he will continue his reign as manager in search of three-in-a-row All-Ireland titles. The ‘Rebels’ were struggling throughout their group campaign finishing up mid-table in a quarter-final position as a number of retirements raised questions would a back to back title be possible.
Murray and his backroom team molded a new starting fifteen to replace the 13 retirements they faced from the 2014 year. As a result Cork eased past Galway in the All-Ireland final. In 2016, Murray has arranged another talented backroom team in hope of another All-Ireland title.
Blackrock’s Jamie Harrington and Wesley O’Brien are Murray’s hurling coaches. Adam McCarthy is S&C coach, who has experience with both the Waterford and Tipperary senior hurlers. Niall Collins remains as statistician in addition to the large support network Paudie has with him on match day.
