Cork football manager Teddy Holland has been dismissed by Cork County Board.

Delegates voted by 89 votes to 18 for his removal, a development which brings an end a 97 day-long dispute.

The fiasco saw inter-county fixtures being unfulfilled due to a strike for the first time in the GAA’s history.

The search for a new manager has already got underway, with a seven-man panel – comprising of five county board members and two current players – charged with finding the new man.
