Jimmy Barry-Murphy on Patrick Horgan’s future

Cork legend Jimmy Barry-Murphy gives his thoughts on whether or not iconic forward Patrick Horgan will play next season

Cork legend Jimmy Barry-Murphy gives his thoughts on whether or not Patrick Horgan will play next season.

Jimmy Barry Murphy believes that Patrick Horgan will hurl for Cork again in 2024.

The Glen Rovers man has been on the road at inter-county level since making his league debut in 2008, and notched 1-14 (0-11 frees) last week against Limerick.

After 15 season in the red jersey, the 35-year-old owes nothing to his county but former manager JBM sees no reason for the veteran to walk away.

Cork came bitterly close to staying in the championship but ran out of time as they looked for an equaliser at the Gaelic Grounds.

Having drawn with Tipperary, beaten Waterford and lost to Clare by a point, there is a sense that Pat Ryan’s charges are on an upward trajectory.

“I thought (Horgan) was absolutely fantastic again this year, and I thought he was our standout player again last Sunday,” says JBM.

“In the heat of battle, the two outstanding players for Cork were Patrick Horgan and Seamie Harnedy, I thought they were fantastic.

“My admiration for both of them knows no end really.

“I was lucky enough to manage both of them for a couple of years and we just fell short in an All-Ireland final (in 2013) but they’re dedication, they live for the game.

“Their fitness levels are extraordinary.

“I’d see no reason whatsoever… if I was manager of Cork next year, I’d be down on my hands on my hands and knees asking them to play on.

“But there will be no question anyway because Hoggy just lives for the game, and there will be no question whatsoever until he feels he is completely gone, and he is certainly not that.

“They were our standout players last Sunday and it was great for players of their age to show that if you mind yourself and prepare properly, you can play at this level still.”
