Keith Ricken set to become new manager of Cork men's senior footballers

Gaelic Games

The Gaelic Players Association has contacted GAA County Board secretaries and chairpersons urging them to back Proposal B to revamp the Football Championship at Special Congress.

A 60% vote by delegates on Saturday week is required for passage of the proposal, which would herald a new League Championship structure in the summer.

Antrim manager & 3-time All Ireland winner with Tyrone, Enda McGinley, is wondering what the Association has to lose in backing Proposal B:

Keith Ricken is to become the new manager of the Cork senior footballers on a 2 year deal.

The St Vincent's clubman led the Rebel Under 20's to All Ireland glory in 2019.
