All-Ireland winner signs on with Cork U20 management team

Former Cork forward Colm O’Neill has been announced as a selector for the Cork U20 team.

The 2010 All-Ireland winner joins Maurice Moore and Pat Spratt as selectors on Keith Ricken's side.

O'Neill's addition was confirmed at a county board meeting in Páirc Uí Chaoimh last night.

This afternoon, Cork GAA announced that Micheál Ó Cróinín had also joined the management team as a selector.

Ballyclough man O'Neill retired last year due to a recurring knee injury.

His final outing in a Cork jersey was in their 2018 Munster final defeat to Kerry.

O'Neill came on as a substitute in 2010 All-Ireland final win against Down to add to his three National League titles.

The All-Star joins a relatively new coaching ticket after Gene O’Driscoll unexpectedly stepped down from the job last month.

Cork lost the Munster U20 final by six points to Kerry last year.
