DAVY Fitzgerald could be part of the Cork senior camogie management team.
With four-time All-Ireland-winning manager Paudie Murray having taken charge of the county's minor hurling team for 2022, Cork are on the lookout for a senior camogie manager for the first time in a decade.
While Jerry Wallace was initially considered to be the front-runner, it's now thought that Matthew Twomey (Dougas), a selector under Murray, will be given the manager's role and Fitzgerald is likely to take on a coaching role. Twomey was expected to be announced as the new manager at a board meeting on Wednesday night but that was postponed.
Fitzgerald won two All-Ireland senior medals with Clare as a goalkeeper, in 1995 and 1997, and then led the county to the Liam MacCarthy Cup as manager in 2013. Prior to that, he took Waterford to the 2008 All-Ireland final in his first senior inter-county managerial role and most recently he was in charge of Wexford. He also has a long association with TU Shannon Midlands-Midwest (formerly Limerick IT), winning two Fitzgibbon titles with them. Previous camogie involvements include taking Clare to the 2008 All-Ireland minor A final and helping Ardrahan to the 2018 Galway county title.
While there had been a widespread expectation that he would be appointed as Galway manager last month, the Tribesmen instead opted for Henry Shefflin, allowing him to be approached for the Cork camogie role.
