This Wednesday Cork’s U21 Hurlers travel to the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick to take on the hosts in the U21 Munster Hurling Final. Darren O’Driscoll has been given jersey no. 18 as Cork seek to add another trophy to the glorious summer of hurling we’ve experienced on Leeside. Darren was also part of the panel when Cork snuck past Waterford with a last minute penalty in the previous round but they are sure to face a sterner test against hot-favourites Limerick. It will be Darren’s latest attempt at a medal with the Cork hurlers as he was a part of the Cork intermediate team that lost out to Galway in the 2015 All-Ireland final.
The Rebel Army will be on the road again Thursday for the U17 All-Ireland semi-final in Thurles against Galway. Aaron Walsh Barry will captain the Cork side from wing back as they look to secure a place in the inaugural U17 All-Ireland final. Aaron has already secured Munster winners’ medals for U17 and minor this year and will also be part of the minor panel who take on Dublin in the All Ireland semi-final on August 13th.
We wish Darren and Aaron the very best of luck with their respective Cork teams as they continue Carrigtwohill’s proud tradition of representing the county.
