NEW Cork manager Pat Ryan will make his competitive debut away to Kerry on Thursday January 5th in Group 2 of the 2023 Co-op Superstores Munster Hurling League. In Cork’s second game, they’ll host the All-Ireland champions Limerick on Thursday January 12th.

Sarsfields man Ryan came in after Kieran Kingston’s three-year stint came to an end. After winning two All-Ireland U20 titles in 2020 and 2021, Ryan comes in with great pedigree. He will be hoping to get the Rebels on the road to their first Liam McCarthy triumph since 2005.

The last group game sees Limerick host Kerry on January 17th.
