The Cork County Board are holding an emergency meeting tonight to consider the recommendations of Labour Relations Commission chief Kieran Mulvey in the on-going players' strike.

Mulvey recommended that football manager Teddy Holland and his selectors step aside from their positions, while a new manager should be selected by a committee of seven which would include five from the county board and two current players.

His third recommendation relates to inter-county players agreeing never to strike again.

However, Holland and his selectors met the County Board last night and the football manager insisted that he would not resign his position.

Elsewhere, the GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee will meet on Tuesday to decide the next course of action in the saga after the Cork footballers' League match with Dublin and the hurlers' game against Waterford where called off. 

Their future in the National Leagues will now be decided at that meeting next week.
