Darragh and Brandon in Cork U15 Action

Well done Darragh Cashman, who was #11 for Cork U15A hurlers over the weekend as they won their intercounty tournament in Brinny, beating Limerick, Tipperary, and Galway to take the trophy. Darragh is on both the football and hurling U15 development squads! … And also to his Keale Gaels teammate Brandon Murphy (Dromtarriffe) who was playing with the Cork U15B team in Clare, who beat Kerry, Limerick, and Galway, on their way to also winning their tournament.

Our Thurles Trio

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.

Munster Minor Hurling Final Becons for Conor

Cork’s nine year wait for a Munster Minor Hurling Championship final appearance is over as they produced a hugely impressive performance to down the reigning champions Tipperary in this evening’s semi-final replay on a scoreline of 2-22 to 2-19. Starring at corner back (#2) was Conor O’Callaghan from Kilcorney, who plays his hurling with Keale Gaels (Dromtarriffe & Millstreet).

In the first game Conor came in for special mention for an excellent display at corner back, and similarly in the replay: “Conor O’Callaghan again impressive”. The final is on next Sunday in Thurles at 2pm and precedes the Senior final in which Mark Ellis will most likely be playing also.

Cork show steel to finally battle past Tipperary – “…When Tipp trimmed the margin to just a point in injury time extra time was looming, but Conor O’Callaghan and the Roches twins, Eoin and Brian, ensured Cork cleared their lines…”  [read more …] “Munster Minor Hurling Final Becons for Conor”
