  • The 2007–08 Cork players' strike was a dispute in Republic of Ireland between the Cork County Board and its Gaelic footballers and hurlers. It led to the footballers and hurlers refusing to play for the Cork County Board. The cause of the strike was the issue of deciding who should pick the senior teams' selectors. The players believed the manager should pick the selectors. However, the county board picked the selectors. With the appointment of Teddy Holland as manager, the players also refused to play under his tutorship since he accepted the job during their time of strike. The strike drew comment from the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, and was the first time in the history of the Gaelic Athletic Association that a strike caused inter county fixtures not to be played. The strike was the second strike by Cork players in five years. It began on 10 December 2007 and ended on 18 February 2008 – 97 days after the first threat of strike action – and was declared over on 15 February 2008. However Holland was not fired until 18 February. Kieran Mulvey, chairman of the Labour Relations Commission, acted as arbitrator between the players and county board.
