The on-going players' strike in Cork may be a step closer to resolution after a meeting of the Cork County Board.

County Board officials have voted 96 to 13 in favour of entering a binding arbitration with the county's senior hurlers and footballers.

According to the terms of the proposals both sides would work out a deal through an independent third party, expected to be CEO of the Labour Relations Commission, Kieran Mulvey.

The arbitrator's decision would be final and could not be disputed or appealed.
