Daniel Cronin

JUNE  - Niall Twomey , Ballinascarthy, and Daniel Cronin, St. Mary’s, Cork Development Squad managers.

           

 The past season has proved a marvellous one for Cork football development squads and right at the centre of the action were two West Cork mentors, Niall Twomey and Daniel Cronin. Twomey was manager of the All-conquering U.15 football squad which won the prestigious Humphrey Kelleher Tournament in Millstreet and the Adam Mangan All-Ireland tournament, remaining unbeaten for the season. That included fourteen games against other counties, plus wins over North and South Kerry teams in the Kelleher Tournament. Twomey, himself, is a former county senior championship winner with his native Bantry and has given tremendous service to Ballinascarthy underage teams.

     Daniel Cronin was manager of the unbeaten U.16 Cork football squad. Although splitting their squad into two teams, the “Whites” still managed to win the Munster Tournament in Limerick, the first win in six years. The objective of the U.16 squad is to get the players ready for the minor U.17 team and already most of this winning team has moved up. Cronin was a former Coaching officer with the Carbery Board and his award is unique as his sister, Orla, is also an award winner for camogie achievements.
