Tomás Mulcahy has emerged as the hot favourite to be the next Cork senior hurling manager as doubts persist about Jimmy Barry-Murphy’s willingness to continue in the position next season.

However, there will be no immediate move on the senior hurling management for 2016, as Barry-Murphy has not yet made his intentions known to the executive of the County Board.

JBM still has a year remaining on his term, and though the odds on him being manager next year have lengthened in recent days, it is his prerogative whether to continue or not.

Mulcahy has emerged as the front-runner to succeed JBM, and fellow double winners from 1990, Jim Cashman and Teddy McCarthy, have been mentioned as possible selectors if Mulcahy takes charge.

A full County Board meeting tomorrow night will begin the process of replacing Brian Cuthbert as senior football manager, after the Bishopstown man elected not to put his name forward.
