New Cork senior football manager Peadar Healy has confirmed three of his management team for next season.

Former Castletownbere boss Morgan O'Sullivan is coming on board as a selector along with Irish Examiner columnist Conor McCarthy as sports psychologist.

McCarthy played under Healy when he was in charge of O'Donovan Rossa last season.

As had been speculated, Paudie Kissane, who won an All-Ireland under Healy when he assisted Conor Counihan as a selector, will be the strength and conditioning coach having worked with Clare last season.

He takes up the role after already being named as a selector to minor manager Brian Herlihy for 2016.

Healy hopes to add two more to his group with Castlehaven's James McCarthy mentioned as one of them but the Naomh Abán man is delighted with his appointments thus far.

"Paudie is very strong in the strength and conditioning area," Glengarriff-based garda Healy told the Irish Examiner.

"He's somebody who is excellent in what he does and he's somebody that you can trust.

"Conor McCarthy is a very professional man and Morgan O'Sullivan is a man I know who will bring an awful lot to the table as well. He's won a county championship with Castletownbere and is a sergeant by profession in Macroom and he's someone who is well in tune with what's going on."
