Club Coach Mentoring Programme

Rebel Óg Coaching are offering coaches of players between the ages 13 and 17 an exciting opportunity to develop their coaching skills & standards through a new mentoring programme.
Coaches who sign up to the programme will receive a series of blended workshops (face to face and on line) in the following areas :
  • Coaching session design/planning
  • Games based methods
  • Athletic development 
  • Technical skill development
  • Creating team structure (with/without the ball)
  • communication
Club coaches (of 13-17 year old boys) who are very keen to improve their own coaching standards and get more from their training sessions. If a coach has completed a Foundation Course and/or Award One Course, this programme would be an additional platform to hone coaching skills and will touch on elements of these courses but will be more practical and individual in focus.
The plan is to have coaches attend 6 workshops of 1 hour in duration over the next 3-4 months.
These workshops would be a minimum of 3 on line webinars and face to face content will depend on Covid 19 guidelines.
We would also setup an informal chat group for coaches to interact with each other to discuss particular coaching topics led by a facilitator.
Coaches should be willing to get constructive feedback on their coaching sessions also.
Coaches will have direct back up from their local GDA also once registered.
By following the link below and complete the form on or before Tuesday 20th October.
Please note this form is an expression of interest and does not constitute acceptance on to the programme. Places are limited and coaches may be shortlisted in advance.

Cork GAA Statement

Our priority throughout the pandemic has been keeping our GAA community safe.
Anything that threatens that safety, and the very continuation of the game during COVID-19, needs to be avoided at all costs.
To that end, we would plead with all clubs and supporters not to engage in celebrations that breach current guidelines.
There will be county finals again next year – and we want to make sure COVID-19 does not rob some of the chance to enjoy them

Co-Op Superstores Cork Premier Senior Hurling Championship Semi Finals

This weekend sees the Semi Finals of the Co-Op Superstores Cork Premier Senior Hurling Championship taking place. Both games will take place in SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday. First up will be Blackrock vs UCC at 4pm and this will be followed by Glen Rovers vs Erins Own at 7.30pm. Ahead of the games, Diarygold Chief Executive Jim Woulfe was joined by players from the four teams along with Cork GAA Chairperson Tracey Kennedy and Cork GAA CEO Kevin O’ Donovan.

Jim Woulfe, CEO Dairygold commented “with our network of stores across Cork, Dairygold is very much at the heart of its’ Cork communities. We were delighted to come on board as the sponsors of the Cork Club Hurling Championships and as we reach the business end of the championships we look forward to the exciting games ahead”.

Speaking about this weekend’s games County Chairperson, Tracey Kennedy, said, “I want to wish all four teams the very best ahead of this weekend’s semi-finals, and to compliment all the clubs who contributed to our most exciting championship in years. There’s added interest this year with three-in-a-row champions Imokilly out, so whoever comes through the semi-finals will have the chance to be the first new name on the Seán Óg Murphy Cup since Glen Rovers last won it in 2016. I’d also like to thank Co-op Superstores, who have been fantastic sponsors since they came on board with us at the start of the championships, and we look forward to continuing that relationship into the future.”

The chairperson also said “While our clubs have made immense efforts during the Covid-19 crisis, we must, as an association, continue to show leadership within our communities in implementing physical distancing, reducing our social contacts and all other safety measures recommended by the HSE and the GAA. We’ve got this far, but if we want our games to continue safely, we must all play our part in this.”

Speaking in advance of the games Cork GAA CEO Kevin O’Donovan highlighted “the incredible contribution of all clubs in terms of playing and hosting of games which has brought us to this point, we hope that there are some cracking games in store as due reward this weekend.”

2020 Munster GAA Inter-County Fixtures Confirmed

At a meeting last night (Tuesday), the Munster GAA CCC confirmed the fixture details for the remainder of the 2020 Munster GAA Inter-County Championships.

It was agreed that Home and Away arrangements would continue for Senior Football, Under 20 Hurling and Minor Football. However, as Senior and Minor Hurling have been organised on a round-robin basis for the past 2 seasons, the Home and Away arrangements would be disrupted so those two competitions will be played at neutral venues for 2020.

All fixtures below are knockout / result on the day although in the case of the Senior Hurling Championship, for the four counties that do not win the Munster Final, there will be a second chance via the All-Ireland Qualifiers.

All fixture details are subject to change in line with Covid-19 related developments in advance of each fixture.

Cork GAA announce free year for Premium seat holders

Cork GAA are pleased to announce that a complementary year of action will be granted to all premium seat holders at SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh, in lieu of the effects of Covid-19 global pandemic on the 2020 programme at the stadium.

CEO Kevin O’Donovan stated, “While our club championships this year have been one of our best ever, it has been tinged with regret that you our loyal supporters have not gained significant access to games. 

On the day that marks Cork winning the All-Ireland hurling final 30 years ago we would like to inform you that we are delighted to extend premium tickets in Páirc Uí Chaoimh by a year in compensation for a summer lost to Covid-19.”

“As we look forward to the imminent return of our inter-county teams to action and as the club programme reaches a crescendo, we recognise the phenomenal contribution of our premium seat holders over the last few years. It has been a shame that our beautiful stadium laid empty for the summer months this year, therefore we hope that this gesture will bring some consolation in hope of better days in 2021 and beyond for our supporters.

None of us could have expected to see our gates closed to spectators and seats lying idle.  However we must do what is in the best interest of the public and await confirmation from the authorities on when we can safely re-open to spectators.   

We look forward to an inter-county season to rival 1990 and to welcoming our supporters back to the Páirc when it is safe to do so”.
