All roads lead to Thurles today for the Munster Hurling Finals where three local lads are playing for Cork. First up is Conor O’Callaghan at corner back (#2) for the Cork Minors (2pm). Then it’s the turn of Jack O’Riordan in the Primary Game. Finally Mark Ellis lines up at centre back (#6) for the Seniors against Clare (4pm). The best of luck to them all, and have a great day everyone that’s lucky enough to have tickets.
It follows on from a day when four local lads were representing Cork footballers underage: Francis Cronin, captain of the U16s; Darragh Cashman & Luke Murphy, U15s; and Eoin Sheahan, U14.
Jack O Riordan is representing Millstreet boys primary school in the Cork primary school team at half time at Munster final in Thurles on Sunday. Great honour for Jack, his family and club . Congratulations Jack, enjoy the day and best of luck to Mark too!

Nicky English: “… Mark Ellis and Damien Cahalane had been unconvincing in the past couple of seasons in the centre of the defence but both have registered a definite improvement…”
