A firm end has been reached to the Cork GAA dispute after Senior football manager Teddy Holland and his selectors dramatically volunteered to step down from their positions.

The actions by the management team to step aside, has brought an end to the 95 day dispute between the players and County Board over the appointment of Holland and his selectors.

The step is one of three recommendations made by Labour Relations chief executive Kieran Mulvey, who made an independent judgement on the dispute between the striking players and the Cork County Board this afternoon.

Mulvey has also recommended that the new manager be appointed by a committee of seven, five of whom would include members of the county board with the remaining positions filled by current players, while the third recommendation is that the players do not go on strike again over the issue.

It is likely that former Cork Senior hurling manager John Allen, who guided the Rebels to All-Ireland glory in 2005, will take a role as caretaker manager for the football side in the interim, although this has yet to be confirmed.
