Cork camogie have confirmed the appointment of Matthew Twomey as their new manager with Davy Fitzgerald coming in as a coach for the Rebels.

Twomey replaces the outgoing Paudie Murray and has been handed a two-year term with Fitzgerald joining weeks after being heavily linked to the vacant Galway hurling position – that role ultimately going to Henry Shefflin.

Fitzgerald stood down as Wexford hurling manager in July after five years in charge.

"Cork camogie is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Matthew Twomey to the position of Cork senior camogie manager for a two-year term," the Rebels said.

"Mr Twomey's management team includes Mr Davy Fitzgerald on the coaching side. Cork camogie would like to wish Matthew and his entire management team every success with their new roles."

Cork reached last year’s All-Ireland final where they lost out to Galway by three points.
