New manager says dual players must pick one code for 2016

NEW Cork senior football manager Peadar Healy will not accommodate dual players in his set-up.

The Naomh Abán clubman has stated that the county’s dual players will need to make a decision on which GAA code they will commit to in 2016.

This season, of Cork’s three high-profile dual players, Eoin Cadogan opted for football while both Aidan Walsh and Damien Cahalane threw their lot in with the hurlers.

Amid speculation concerning the dual’s stars’ preference for next season, Healy said: ‘It’s either one or the other. Whatever decision a dual player makes, I’ll respect that decision. If he wants to play football, then that’s great.

‘I would be confident that Eoin will stick with us. He has to make that decision and I will respect whatever decision he makes.’

Meanwhile, the Glengarriff-based Garda revealed that Cork will be entering the 2016 McGrath Cup.

‘It’s good grounding. As well as that, for players who haven’t played games over the winter, it’s good to get a couple of games under their belt before the national league,’ Healy said.
