McCarthy (born 1945 in Passage West, County Cork) is an Irish
hurling manager and former player, currently embarking on his first
seasons as manager of the Limerick senior inter-county team. He
played hurling with his local club Passage and with the Cork senior
inter-county team in the 1960s and 1970s. As a player McCarthy was

All-Ireland title, three Munster titles, two National Hurling
League titles and two Railway Cup titles. Over the last four

own native Cork to two Munster titles and an All-Ireland triumph in
the centenary year of the Gaelic Athletic Association. While in
charge of the Waterford senior hurling team from 2001 to 2008 he
guided the team to three Munster titles and one National Hurling
League title. Waterford, in spite of being regarded as one of the
