Mark Shines again in the Thurles Sun

“A commanding defensive display from Ellis was instrumental in Cork’s victory today – catching many of the opposing puck-outs in a wonderful show of aerial ability. Although Pauric Mahony did enjoy the odd score, there is no denying that Ellis won the battle with his marker for the most part.
There was simply no getting past the Millstreet man today, and he complemented a fine individual performance with a superb score in what was arguably one of his best displays in a Rebels jersey.”Pundit Arena

Mark was interview after the game by Mark Dinan of Red FM. Listen to it here from the Big Red Bench podcast (41:35-44:15)

Cork v Tipp: Good luck Mark

A few short years ago we were thrilled when Mark Ellis became the first Millstreet hurler on the Cork Senior Hurling team. Now in command of the centre back spot he is one of the senior players on the team, much is expected of him and others as Cork take on Tipperary today with a host of new players.

Cork beat Tipp in the league earlier in the year, but Tipp are smarting a big defeat in the league final. Expect Mark to drop back in front of his full back to help prevent goals, but it won’t be easy for Cork today against the All Ireland champions.

Munster SHC quarter-final: Tipperary v Cork, Semple Stadium, 4pm. There will be live coverage of the game on RTÉ2 (TV), RTE Radio, C103, Radio na Gaeltachta with updates on Cork’s 96FM, Red FM, Cork GAA website and Twitter page, but nothing beats being there!

Result: Tipperary 1-16 Cork 2-27 🙂 A great game, and Mark played a blinder also. see more below:  [read more …] “Cork v Tipp: Good luck Mark”
