Carbery Monthly Award Winner Sept 2019

SEPTEMBER  -  West Cork members of the Cork Minor Football Team  -    

Cork minor footballers were hammered by Kerry in the first round of the Munster championship but bounced back with a win over Clare and when they met Kerry again in the Munster final, they were unlucky to lose by three points. In the All-Ireland quarter final they bear Ulster champions, Monaghan and then accounted for Connacht champions, Mayo,  in the semi-final to set up an All-Ireland final meeting with Galway, who had surprised Kerry in the other semi-final. Who will ever forget that great day in Croke Park when Cork came back from the dead to draw with a Conor Corbett goal in injury time and then swept to a decisive victory in extra time. Combined with the U.20 victory, this minor All-Ireland win has given great hope for the future of Cork football and we are indeed proud that there were no less than ten West Cork players on the panel, players who had come through the development squads here in West Cork.  The man responsible for the West Cork squads was our GDA, James McCarthy, who was also a selector on the Cork minor team.   

     The West Cork players involved in the Cork minor team of 2019 were Dan Peet, Clonakilty; Jack Lawton, Argideen Rangers and Ibane Gaels; Jack Cahalane, Castlehaven; Ryan O’Donovan, Barryroe and Ibane Gaels; Keith O’Driscoll, Gabriel Rangers; Séamus O’Sullivan, Newcestown; Seán Bohane, Castlehaven; Barry Kerr, Carbery Rangers; James O’Regan, Gabriel Rangers; and Keelin Scannell, Carbery Rangers.
