Some thanks and respect towards Kieran wouldn’t go astray. An absolute gent by all accounts who put everything he could into Cork hurling for over a decade. There are many reasons why we’ve come up short in recent times and I’m sure Kieran will accept his fair share of the blame for this. But let’s not kid ourselves, there is plenty to go around. However it’s the man at the top who rightly pays the highest price. Thanks Kieran. You gave it your best shot.
