Off the back of winning the 2020 Cork LGFA senior title, West Cork had the option of nominating a selector to join the county senior management team – and McCarthy will now add his knowledge to the inter-county set-up.
Clann na nGael clubman McCarthy has been manager of the West Cork ladies’ senior football team since 2016 and has guided them to three successive senior finals, including last year’s historic win against Mourneabbey.
He has also led Clann na nGael ladies’ footballers to county success, coached underage Clann na nGael teams to West Cork and county honours, and is a former manager of Dohenys ladies’ footballers.
