County board chairperson Tracey Kennedy will chair the committee which aims  to “develop a long-term plan for Cork football.”

It features former manager and player Counihan, who led the county to All-Ireland glory as manager in 2010 and as a player in 1989 and 1990.

Cuthbert was in charge of Cork from 2014-15, while Canty was one of Cork’s greatest players and skippered them to the 2010 All-Ireland success.

Kennedy announced at last month’s county board meeting that the three-man committee would feature people who are familiar of all facets of Cork football.

Aspects such as strength and conditioning, coaching structures, the role of secondary schools and the structures of the county championships are all likely to be looked at.
