Denis Ring says he is “not in the least bit” interested in the vacant Cork senior hurling manager’s post.

The highly-regarded Ring – manager of the Rebels side that will face Tipperary in Saturday’s All-Ireland U20 HC final – says he fully expects Kieran Kingston to return as Cork senior boss in 2020. Is he vying for the post himself?

“Not in the least bit, all totally focused on what is in front of me and what is relevant,” he told gaa.ie. “I expect Kieran Kingston will be the manager coming back. I know Kieran has unfinished business with Cork.

“He probably left prematurely, I know he had established a lot of good practices and good systems, put things in place, good people in place. I know it would be positive from that perspective coming back.

“I expect Kieran will be the manager next year, I think he is excellent. I think it is exciting times for Cork hurling. I think if it is Kieran he will be inheriting a panel next year that is vastly superior to the panel he inherited four years ago. It is an exciting time from a Cork perspective.”
