Cork’s senior hurling and football teams will both be in action this weekend at Páirc Uí Chaoimh. A double header on Sunday will see the hurlers take on Galway at 12.45pm, and the footballers go up against archrivals Kerry at 2.45pm.
Both ties come at a critical juncture in the National League program. The Hurlers have got off to a fine start this year with two wins from two, defeating Waterford and Dublin respectively. Both victories saw the new Cork management team, with Jimmy Barry Murphy back at the helm, unearth some new talent as youngsters such as Conor Lehane and Darren Sweetnam got crucial game time under their belts.
The footballers have won two from four, with one draw, and currently sit second on the League table, one point behind their opponents on Sunday. A win at this stage would go a long way towards helping the Leesiders to retain their NFL crown.
Admission to Páirc Uí Chaoimh this Sunday is €13 for adults, €5 for students and seniors, and free to under 16’s.
Spectators are advised that there will be a crack down on illegal parking in the environs of Páirc Uí Chaoimh this Sunday due to an agreement between the Cork County Board and residents.
