New Cork boss Ryan eager to get going

New Cork hurling boss Pat Ryan says he can’t wait to get going.

The Sarsfields club man was ratified as Kieran Kingston’s successor on Tuesday evening, and has been handed a three year term in charge of the Rebels.

Ryan led the Cork under 20s to back to back All Ireland titles last year, and previously managed Sarsfields to County titles in 2012 and 2014.

Speaking to RedFM Sport this morning, Ryan says it’s a massive honour to be named Cork boss.

“It is, and a big responsibility as well. I’m delighted that the county board were able to have the faith in me that I can do this job, and I suppose putting a good backroom team around us and a lot of good fellas in the backroom team is vital to any successful team that we go forward with.

“It’s a big job, and you have to make sure you can do it from a family perspective and a work perspective, and that you can people involved that want to do it.

“Obviously having a very good working relationship with Kieran Kingston and Diarmuid O’Sullivan, I know the work that they’ve put in this year with Pat Mulcahy and Noel Furlong, and with Ger Cunningham and Christy O’Connor before that,  there’s an awful lot of good things going on, and hopefully I can bring something that can maybe get us further up the ladder.”

The full interview will be broadcast on the Big Red Bench this weekend.
