THE 2021 Ulster junior hurling champions Craobh Rua are on the look out for a new manager for the upcoming season.

He also had a hand in Carrickcruppen’s football success last season, as they were crowned Armagh intermediate football champions.
Cunningham was assistant manager to Barry Flynn as ‘Cruppen ended a 17-year win for intermediate glory.
