Pat Ryan to coach Cork senior hurlers

Pat Ryan has been confirmed as coach of the Cork senior hurling team, replacing Frank Flannery, who stepped aside last month.

Ryan won All-Ireland U21 medals with Cork in 1997 and 1998 — the last time the Rebels won that title — and added a senior medal in 1999.

He also steered Sarsfields to success in the Cork county championship in 2014 as manager. Flannery has been linked consistently to a role with the Wexford senior hurlers, having managed Oulart-the Ballagh to their first Leinster Club title in 2015.
