The manager of Cork City, Colin Healy, is planning to leave.



It is anticipated that Colin Healy will leave his position as manager of Cork City tonight.

After thinking about Monday’s 5-0 loss at Bohemians, the former Ireland international and Rebels midfielder reportedly informed the team of his decision.


Healy was urged to stay, but it’s unlikely that his decision to leave had anything to do with the Rebels’ earlier today appointment of Liam Buckley as sporting director.

In charge of the team for Friday’s Premier Division match against St. Pat’s, who fired manager Tim Clancy on Tuesday, is expected to be Buckley and Liam Kearney.


And once Healy’s departure is official, Clancy may still be a candidate for the Turner’s Cross position.

It is understood that Buckley is not a candidate to take the helm of Cork City full-time.


Today, Buckley made a sensational comeback to football by accepting the position of Sporting Director at the Leesider.

Dermot Usher, the new owner, officially announced the appointment of the former manager of Sligo Rovers, St. Patrick’s Athletic, and Shamrock Rovers.


The two-time Premier Division champion Buckley will concentrate on player acquisition while also having a significant influence on the choice of a new manager.

Usher, who acquired control of the Leesiders in February, applauded the choice.


Before the Healy situation got out of hand, he said in a statement that “he has had a long and very successful career in football, and brings a huge amount of knowledge and experience to the role.”

Liam will be concentrated on helping the club find players and advancing the excellent work already being done on the football side of things.


“I am very happy to have him on board. His knowledge and experience will be a big asset to us as we look toward the summer and beyond.”

I’ve had some really great conversations with Dermot and the club staff, and I’m really looking forward to working with everyone, said Buckley.


We are all eager to build on the good work that has already been done and work together to help this club realize its potential after being promoted back to the Premier Division last season.
