2021 Co-Op Superstores Cork County Hurling Championships.

The Co-Op Superstores Cork County Hurling Championships will commence on Friday September 10th with a busy weekend of much-anticipated games. Clubs throughout the county are gearing up for the first round of games and the excitement is already in the air. The Championships will include three weekends of group games, with close to thirty games each weekend, followed by the knock-out stages which will culminate in the county finals in Páirc Uí Chaoimh later this autumn.

Co-Op Superstores is the retail division of Dairygold Co-Operative Society Ltd and has deep roots throughout Cork and local communities, just as our GAA clubs have.

Speaking at the launch of the 2021 Hurling Championships at Co-Op Superstores Midleton earlier this week, Cork GAA Vice-Chairperson Pat Horgan said “Dairygold Co-Op Superstores are engrained in the community just like the GAA, like ourselves they are at the heart of local communities in which they operate, and we are delighted to have them back as title sponsor for 2021”.

Commenting at the launch of the Co-Op Superstores Cork Hurling Championship, Head of Dairygold Agri Business, Liam O’Flaherty said “We are delighted to be partnering once again with Cork GAA on the sponsorship of the club hurling championship. Last year’s championship was a hugely successful competition in what was an uncertain year for sporting events. We believe that it is a great fit between the two organisations as many of our members, suppliers and those who work with us are involved with the GAA. 2021 is sure to be an exciting championship with more spectators being allowed attend the games. We’re excited as much as they are to see how this year’s championships play out and we’re delighted to be back on board for 2021 and wish all the clubs the best of luck”.

This weekend’s action begins Friday night when Blackrock play Erins Own in Pairc Ui Rinn at 7.30pm.
