Finally a bit of movement in the transfer market from Limerick, three new players in.
Ian Turner returns to the club for a 3rd spell after he was only a benchwarmer for Cork last season. Was very good in the run-in two years ago. Has his faults but is a good attacking threat down the right-hand side and did score goals. His attitude towards the defensive side of the game probably leaves him down.
Dave O'Connor signs from Rovers. Don't know much about him; centre-back, rarely played for the first team. Not very complimentary things said about him from the Rovers fans but hopefully he proves them wrong.
And Brendan Clarke from St. Pat's. Bit of a strange one, with Hall already signed on, I wouldn't have thought goalkeeper was a priority and I imagine he's not cheap. It's good to get a quality player in and a bit of experience too but I would be hoping that it's not at the cost of a similar quality player elsewhere.
Whitehead, Garbhan and Williams have all signed on again too.
Good to get some players in; there is talk of the Dennehys. Apparently Rovers aren't going to keep Dean Clarke but the likes of Bohs & Bray are also interested. I'd definitely take him back. I'd take Faherty back too for sure.
