Tbf you do seem to enjoy misery


Apparently the Minor hurlers have lost their starting center-back to the footballers.


How many of that lot are playing Senior Club Hurling?


Hope springs eternal. Interesting selection.
Keeping the older lads for Kerry…


13/22 from Snr clubs I make it. Most of rest get to play senior with divisional sides and colleges then I assume


What did Conor Lehane do to be in Kingston’s bad books to get selected with the novices


Footballers are well.looked after. But its the hurlers fault for forcing choices.



Is there a county board policy on this ???


Ucc backed in from 11/4 to evens but I missed it. I can see why with that selection.


Because two new half-forwards will start for main team on Sunday versus Kerry - Robbie O’Flynn and Shane O’Keeffe, hence Kearney/Lehane starting tonight.


Cork will win this. Its basically the U-21s plus three seniors and Sheehan/O’Driscoll, who are in their mid 20s at this stage.




Tragic loss in football terms. Fuck me but their is no class left now really.
I wonder is the management set up an issue.

Ballincollig for the county now. Don’t think they have anyone left on Cork sqyad yet they have a squad full of County representitives.


UCC 0-22
Cork 1-13

no other details




And UCC would have been missing Michael Breen, Seamus Kennedy and Tom Devine.


Have you a UCC team?



I saw it earlier. Something like this.

Dylan Desmond Cork
Shane Roche Waterford
Colm Spillane Cork
Ian Kenny Waterford
Colm Roche Waterford
Conor Gleeson Waterford
Rickard Cahalane Cork
Jamie Barron Waterford
Mark O’Brien Waterford
Anthony Spillane Cork
Billy McCarthy Tipp
Rob O’Shea Cork
Alan Cadogan Cork
James O’Flynn Cork
Shane Hegarty Cork

Gavin O’Brien Waterford and Niall Motherway Cork were named to start but didn’t.

If you threw in Breen, Kennedy and Tom Devine they won’t be too bad. Might get out of the group in the Fitzgibbon this year.
