Paudie Murray has stepped down as manager of the Cork senior camogie team.

He has had phenomenal success with the county since taking the reins in 2012, winning All-Irelands in 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018, when he also steered the intermediate side to the title.

"Having the opportunity to work with, and learn from, a backroom team whose professionalism, expertise and knowledge was a huge honour and I will be forever indebted to them," he said.

"I wish to thank and pay tribute to an incredible bunch of players that I have had the honour to manage throughout my tenure.

"The joy, the tears, the sense of camaraderie and the memories shared will stay with me forever. You have been a credit to yourselves and I thank your families and partners for inculcating in you a sense of decency, a humility and a work ethic that will stand the test of time. I wish you every success in the future."

Murray is now strongly fancied to manage Cork's minor hurling team in 2022.
