Cork board call emergency meeting

The Cork county board has called an emergency meeting for Saturday night to discuss the recommendations made by LRC chief executive Kieran Mulvey.

Cork county board PRO Bob Ryan issued a statement on Friday evening confirming that club delegates will be asked to consider Mulvey's decision to ask football boss Teddy Holland and his selectors to step aside.

It is still unclear if the recommendations by Mulvey are binding on the county board, despite the decision on Thursday night to engage in arbitration.

"The county board is in receipt of the report of arbitrator Kieran Mulvey," the satement read.

"The executive will present the report to a full meeting of the county board on Saturday, 16th February. There will be no further comment on the matter until after the meeting of the board."

Mulvey called on Holland and his selectors to resign as well as recommending that a seven-man team comprised of five county board members and two players choose the next manager.

Mulvey has called on the players not to strike again in the future.

It is also understood that under Mulvey's recommendations, the Cork manager would have the right to choose his own selectors.
