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.
