Default Frank is Gone.

At last, the day that most Cork GAA Supporters have been waiting for has finally arrived. We have 100% confirmation that Frank Murphy is retiring at the end of the year.

The process for finding a replacement is about to begin.

Some people won't believe it until it happens but this time, it's for real. He's Gone.

Surely the most controversial and divisive figure in the history of Cork GAA. His presence has caused stagnation, hindered the formation of a Supporters Organisation and generally has been disasterous for Cork GAA.

It's vital that a quality person is appointed and perhaps Cork can reclaim it's place as the top GAA County.

He's nearly 60 years of age. I doubt that they will go for a short term appointment.

Let’s calm down here , we’ve been here before and the County executive have given Frank an extension so next co board meeting will tell allot . Whose to say Frank won’t take up another role in the executive , also Frank is a director of the stadium and will be around the corridors for a long time

No extension this time. I spoke to a long term member of the Executive a few months ago and he told me that it was 100% certain that Frank would retire as Runai at the end of this year.

Another role in the Executive? In previous administrations, that would be a real possibility as Frank had huge influence over weak Chairmen. However, Frank is not close to Ger Lane and he lobbied hard to stop Tracey Kennedy's election so it's fair to say that he does not have the influence of bygone years.

I think we'll see a clean break.

Nearly 60 you say. A guy in his late 50s would be a mere whippersnapper compared to those wielding power in CCB

Whoever it is, and if it's to be DOD then so be it but there should surely be a few candidates for the job, I hope to gawd a valuable and painful lesson has been learnt. There should be NO MORE jobs for life in CCB. A 5 - 7 year stint as Secretary should be ample. If he/she is doing a good job they'll get re-elected to the post without any acrimony. And knowing that they'll be answerable to the CCB, and up for re-election it will put manners on them and prevent whoever it is from turning into a Tyrant.

Now that Frank is gone - I'll believe it when I see a stake driven through his heart - what about that other complete bollix Pearse Murphy. Time to clean house!

As other posters have said, let's wait to see this confirmed - there were similar reports in the media in years gone by only for Frank to quietly shuffle into another extension.

More importantly, if this is happening then it is in itself only a small step - but there is a chance that it will lead to much more radical change. Obviously the identity of his replacement is important, but one other change which must happen is that the term be limited to, say, seven years.
