Cork hurlers over come Dublin in SHC Round 1

All-Ireland SHC Round 1 Qualifier

CORK 1-25 DUBLIN 0-22

By John Harrington at Semple Stadium – report via www.gaa.ie

A quicker-wristed and quicker-witted Cork proved much too good for Dublin in this All-Ireland SHC Round 1 Qualifier at Semple Stadium.

The Rebels’ hurling was a delight to watch at times as they moved the ball through the lines with surgical precision and finished with scalpel-sharpness too.

Kieran Kingston’s team mirrored Dublin’s sweeper system from the start, and simply worked it better.

It helps when you have a hurler as talented as Mark Coleman playing as the free man in your defence, and he quickly grew into one of the dominant personalities of the match.

Thanks to his positional sense he was able to sniff out danger in front of his full-back line with impressive consistency and got himself on a lot of ball.

He’s one of the sweetest strikers in the game too, and when he won possession he invariably found a team-mate with a well-weighted pass.

To by-pass a sweeper you need to be able to work the sliotar as far as the middle third from where you can angle in ball that will favour your inside forwards, but Dublin struggled to do this.

Cork’s forwards have been criticised in the past for a lack of work-rate off the ball, but they tackled hard and tracked diligently throughout this match which meant Dublin’s defenders were usually under pressure when picking their passes.

It must be said too that the movement in front of them didn’t offer enough options, in contrast to the fluid switching and running of Cork’s midfielders and half-forwards.

The Cork wing-forwards, Seamus Harnedy and Robert O’Flynn, proved especially elusive for an at times bewildered Dublin defence.

Their ability to pop up in pockets of space was consistently impressive, and when they got the ball they did the business with it, scoring five points from play each.

Shane Kingston was another Cork forward who combined great pace with clever movement and his four-point haul was another big contribution to this Cork victory.

Also at the heart of much of what they did well was the midfield combination of Bill Cooper and Luke Meade who worked tirelessly to carry the ball hard when that needed to be done, and picked out accurate passes to their forwards when that was the percentage play.

It was Meade who opened the scoring in the very first minute and the match continued at a good clip from there.

Dublin didn’t manage to stick the pace for very long. As soon as Declan Dalton goaled after nine minutes the Rebels were in the driving seat.

Jack O’Connor was the creator as he burned Paddy Smyth for pace before passing to Dalton, who hit a sweet ground stroke to the net after his initial shot was blocked.

Dalton is a physical player who brings something different to his Cork attack and he impressed in the first half before fading somewhat in the second.

Donal Burke was doing his best to keep Dublin in the conversation, and a nice point from the corner-forward meant Mattie Kenny’s team were within three points, 1-6 to 0-6, at the first water-break.

That was still the margin of difference with 31 minutes on the clock, but Cork fired off a machine burst of scores before the break with Kingston, Downey, and Horgan all pointing to push their team 1-13 to 0-10 ahead.

Dublin needed a strong start to the second half and nearly got it in the very first minute when Danny Sutcliffe raced through, but Anthony Nash pulled off a great save low to his right from the wing-forward’s batted shot.

Dublin kept plugging away, but Cork were finding their scores easier to get, with O’Flynn in particular running riot on the right wing. Two points in quick succession from the Erins Own man pushed the gap out to seven points.

Dublin were very reliant on Donal Burke’s free-taking to stay in touch, and tried to inject some life into their forwards by pushing Chris Crummey into full-forward and bringing on Davy Keogh, Sean Moran, and Liam Rushe.

Crummey did make a bigger impression on the edge of the square and finished with three points, but a more direct approach largely didn’t pay off for Dublin because the Cork defence defended the high ball aggressively.

Points in quick succession from Jack O’Connor and Harnedy increased Cork’s advantage to 10 points by the 62nd minute, and they were never going to be caught from there.

Dublin, to their credit, kept battling to the end and scored five of the last six points, but by then Cork had visibly lifted their foot of the accelerator as they coasted to victory.

Morale will be high in the Cork camp after this victory, and if they can continue working as hard without the ball as they do with it, they could be a force to be reckoned with yet in this Championship.

Cork Hurling and Football double – 30 years ago

Sunday September 16th 1990 will forever be a special day in the history of Cork GAA, as the Cork Senior Footballers defeated Meath to secure the All-Ireland title to go along with the All-Ireland victory secured by the Hurlers two weeks previous over Galway. It was especially a special time for Teddy McCarthy who secured his place in GAA history by playing in both games, and thus completing a unique double of his own.

To mark the occasion, both the Liam McCarthy and Sam Maguire trophies paid a visit to Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Tuesday where both captains from 1990, Larry Tompkins and Tomás Mulcahy along with Teddy McCarthy were on hand to meet with the Lord Mayor of Cork , Cllr Joe Kavanagh and his wife Stephanie as City Hall will be lit up in Red, as the city and county Go Red for Cork.

Later today both games will be able to view on the GAA Now platform

Cork hurlers lose to Galway

Allianz Hurling League Division One Group A

GALWAY 2-18 CORK 1-16

By Cian O’Connell at Pearse Stadium

Ultimately it turned into a satisfying win that was much more about character than class for Galway.

Shane O’Neill’s outfit fell behind in the 50th minute and with Cork backed by the elements in the second period the locals were under duress.

That, though, was when Galway started to answer the questions being posed by Cork with Gearoid McInerney and Shane Cooney two defiant figures for the maroon and white county.

Robbie O’Flynn’s 52nd minute dismissal for a foul on Fintan Burke scarcely aided Cork’s cause and Galway exploited the numerical superiority with the issue delicately poised.

In the closing stages Galway outscored Cork by 1-5 to 0-2 with Brian Concannon’s delightful 55th minute goal proving to be the critical moment.

Despite playing into the teeth of a strong first half wind, Cork were content to only depart trailing by 1-10 to 0-10 at the interval.

That was chiefly due to the efficiency of Kieran Kingston’s charges, who registered 0-10 from 10 attempts.

Galway had plenty of opportunities initially, but the fact that only 1-10 was struck from 20 shots ensured Cork were in a decent position at the turnaround considering the elements.

With Patrick Horgan sharp from frees the teams were deadlocked at 0-4 each by the 17th minute before Galway enjoyed a productive burst.

Aidan Harte, Conor Cooney (free), and Adrian Tuohey nailed points prior to Jason Flynn’s sweet 23rd minute major.

Cathal Mannion, Cooney, and Brian Concannon were all involved in the build up with Flynn eventually rattling the Cork net.

Cork, though, stayed composed reeling off six of the last nine points before the break with Conor Lehane and Bill Cooper landing splendid efforts.

When the action recommenced Cork continued to narrow the deficit and hit the front in the 50th minute as O’Mahony netted.

O’Flynn’s red card followed shortly after and Galway subsequently pounced for a goal with Conor Cooney’s inviting delivery gathered by Concannon, who mined a goal.

From then until the finish Cork could only muster a couple of Horgan frees, while Galway finished smartly.

Substitute Evan Niland rifled over two frees and the returning David Burke sealed the deal with a trademark injury time point which was saluted by a throaty western roar. Galway gleaned the spoils.

Scorers for Galway: Brian Concannon 1-2, Cathal Mannion 0-5 (4fs), Jason Flynn 1-1, Conor Cooney 0-3 (2fs), Niall Burke and Evan Niland (2fs) 0-2 each, Aidan Harte, Adrian Tuohey, and Aidan Harte 0-1 each.

Scorers for Cork: Patrick Horgan 0-9 (9fs), Tim O’Mahony 1-1 (1 sideline), Shane Kingston 0-2, Aidan Walsh, Conor Lehane, Darragh Fitzgibbon, and Bill Cooper 0-1 each.

GALWAY: Eanna Murphy; Darren Morrissey, Gearoid McInerney, Seán Loftus; Pádraic Mannion, Shane Cooney, Fintan Burke; Aidan Harte, Cathal Mannion; Jason Flynn, Niall Burke, Adrian Tuohey; Brian Concannon, Conor Whelan, Conor Cooney.
