Kee­gan leaves Cork hurl­ing role

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA -

Per­for­mance coach Gary Kee­gan will not be in­volved with the Cork se­nior hurl­ing team next year.

The former di­rec­tor of the Ir­ish In­sti­tute of Sport and high-per­for­mance di­rec­tor with the Ir­ish Am­a­teur Box­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, Kee­gan was brought on board with Cork by then-man­ager Kieran Kingston in 2016.

Since then the Cork hurlers have won con­sec­u­tive Mun­ster ti­tles and reached two All-ire­land semi-fi­nals.

Kee­gan also works with the Dublin foot­ballers, who won a fourth All-ire­land se­nior ti­tle in a row this sea­son, and ear­lier this year he de­liv­ered a widerang­ing re­port to the GAA rec­om­mend­ing changes to pol­icy and prac­tices on games devel­op­ment.
