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 Pairc Ui 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.”
