Conor Counihan has announced his resignation as Cork senior football manager following their All-Ireland SFC quarter-final defeat to Dublin at Croke Park.
Tonight's reversal marks the end of Counihan's six-year tenure which included that memorable 2010 All-Ireland title, three Munster crowns (2008, 2009 and 2012) and three Division 1 league successes (2010, 2011 and 2012).
Speaking to RTÉ after the 1-16 to 0-14 loss to the Dubs, the Aghada man said: "I've spoke to the players there now and I'm stepping down as such.
"Look, I've had six fantastic years. They're a great group of players and they owe no one nothing."
Counihan was a two-time All-Ireland winner and All-Star as a player. He served as a selector with Cork under both Billy Morgan and Larry Tompkins before taking on the manager's role in February 2008, succeeding the axed Teddy Holland.
