Cork players gave full backing to McCarthy only last summer

It has emerged that the Cork senior hurling panel gave their unanimous backing to under-fire manager Gerald McCarthy earlier this year, and believed that they could win an All-Ireland under his stewardship.

That was revealed today in a document containing quotes from all the players and backroom staff.

In the wake of the Munster Championship defeat to Tipperary, McCarthy brought Cathal O’Reilly, a motivational guru, on board.

One of Mr O’Reilly’s tasks during his tenure was to invite all the players and the backroom staff to give their opinion of Gerald McCarthy as a coach.

Nearly 40 individuals were asked to subscribe, and there wasn’t a dissenting voice in their appraisal of him.

In that document, all the players gave full and frank opinions of the manager, and in all cases there was a positive response.
