The Cork senior hurling team are in search of a new manager after John Allen resigned from the position earlier today.

Allen, who has been involved with the senior hurlers since 1999, led Cork to All-Ireland success against Galway in 2005 but his two-year term ended after the defeat to Killkenny earlier this month.

The likely candidates to take over Allen as manager are former goalkeeper and current selector Ger Cunningham and former captain and current RTE GAA analyst Tomas Mulcahy.
