Kee­gan set for Cork re­turn in 2018

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA/WORLD OF SPORT -

New Cork hurl­ing coach John Meyler in­di­cated yes­ter­day that high-per­for­mance ex­pert Gary Kee­gan is likely to be part of the Rebels’ back­room team next year. Kee­gan, who also worked with the All-ire­land-win­ning Dublin foot­ballers this year, is a former di­rec­tor of the Ir­ish In­sti­tute of Sport and high-per­for­mance di­rec­tor with the Ir­ish Am­a­teur Box­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

“Get­ting the sup­port team in place is crit­i­cal,” said Meyler yes­ter­day. “It’s not about an in­di­vid­ual, but the team. That’s not just se­lec­tors, but the likes of Pat Keane [lo­gis­tics], Mark [O’don­nell, masseur] and Richie [Mooney, masseur], Dec­cie [O’sul­li­van, physio and strength-and-con­di­tion­ing coach], Dr Con [Mur­phy], Dr Colm [Mur­phy]; the med­i­cal team is crit­i­cal to the over­all pic­ture. Gary [Kee­gan] is in Amer­ica at the moment. He was very im­por­tant last year in terms of the mes­sage and the process, so he’ll be im­por­tant next year.”
