Storming finish sees Chorca Dhuibhne claim a sixth Corn Uí Mhuirí title

Report By Eoghan Cormican for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne 3-11 – 0-16 St Brendan’s College, Killarney

A stunning last 11 minutes powered Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne to a sixth Corn Uí Mhuirí title.

Trailing by the minimum with 12 minutes remaining, the Dingle college kicked the last five scores of this replay to retain the Munster crown.

Somewhat ironically, Dingle’s superb finish directly followed the sending to the stand of Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice and selector Tommy Griffin. Both mentors were dismissed to the terrace at the same time by referee James Bermingham.

Having notched 1-2 without reply at the beginning of the second-half to establish a 3-5 to 0-11 lead, Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne, with the wind at their backs, looked a safe bet for victory. But credit to St Brendan’s who kicked five of the game’s next six scores to move back in front. The Sem, however, had no answer to their opponents’ finishing burst, as Cathal Ó Beaglaoich and four from the outstanding Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoich sealed the verdict.

St Brendan’s enjoyed the backing of a near gale in the opening period but didn’t make half enough use of the elements and were only two clear at the break, 0-11 to 2-3.

As was the case in the drawn game, St Brendans’ shooting was terribly erratic, with the Killarney college finishing the first-half with eight wides. The other problem for St Brendan’s was Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoich, the Dingle corner-forward kicking his team’s entire first-half total of 2-3.

His first goal arrived a minute and a half after throw-in. Ó Beaglaoich’s second on 12 minutes, mind you, was arguably more important as it followed a run of four St Brendan’s points and even though the Sem would add another four without reply after the concession of that second green flag, they were still just one in front.

That first-half effort, against the elements, would prove crucial in delivering the Dingle nursery their sixth Munster senior crown since 2012.

Scorers for Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne: R Ó Beaglaoich (2-7, 0-4 frees); J Aghas (1-0); C Ó Failbhe, D Ó Geibheannaigh, C Ó Beaglaoich, M Ó Mainín (0-1 each).

St Brendan’s and Chorcha Dhuibhne must do it again after Corn Uí Mhuirí final ends level

Report By Eoghan Cormican for the Irish Examiner newspaper

St Brendan’s Killarney 1-9 – 0-12 PS Chorcha Dhuibhne

St Brendan’s and Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne will meet again next Saturday after today’s Corn Uí Mhuirí final finished level.

Behind by 0-5 to 0-2 at the break, St Brendan’s hit stride early in the second period, outscoring their opponents by 1-5 to 0-3 in the 12 minutes after the restart to move into a 1-7 to 0-8 lead. Emmet O’Shea supplied the St Brendan’s goal, with O’Shea and D’Arcy kicking two apiece during this spell of supremacy.

Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne stemmed the tide with three-in-a-row from Dylan Ó Geibheannaigh, Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoich and Cathal Ó Beaglaoich to go back in front. The Killarney school did manage to once more sneak back into pole position, the final score of this final kicked by Dingle’s Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoich on 55 minutes. Both sides had chances to nab a winner, but neither could land that crucial score.

St Brendan’s would have been disgusted to have found themselves in arrears at the break given they dominated possession and territory. Gary McGrath’s charges, though, time and again let themselves down with a litany of poor wides and a hesitancy when taking aim at the Dingle posts.

The Killarney school finished the half with six wides. There was also three kicks which were blocked down and another point effort which dropped short.

Up the other end, Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne were a picture of efficiency. Steven Ó Conchúir and Dylan Ó Geibheannaigh sniped a pair apiece, with goalkeeper Deividas Uosis coming forward to convert a free. The Dingle shot-stopper, when called upon to kick a second free on 29 minutes, was off target, their first wide of the game.

St Brendan’s economy in front of goal improved sufficiently in the second period to haul themselves back into contention.

Scorers for Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne: D Ó Geibheannaigh (0-4, 0-1 free); R Ó Beaglaoich (0-2 frees), C Ó Beaglaoich, S Ó Conchúir (0-2 each); D Uosis (0-1 free), S Óg Ó Moráin (0-1 each)

Stack goal sees Midleton bridge 13-year gap to claim Harty Cup title

Report By Eoghan Cormican for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Midleton CBS 2-12 – 0-14 CBC

A Joe Stack goal on 53 minutes was the crucial score in delivering Midleton CBS their fourth Harty Cup crown.

Stack’s goal arrived after Midleton had struck five consecutive wides and were failing to in anyway capitalise on this spell of dominance. Stack’s initial effort was superbly smothered, but he followed up and buried the sliotar to the Christians net to move the East Cork College into a 2-10 to 0-13 lead.



A Padraig Power free subsequently cut the gap to two, but Power sent another placed effort thereafter left and wide and no closer would Christians come of their opponents.

Two Ross O’Regan frees completed the scoring for Midleton CBS to leave them celebrating a first Harty success in 13 years, a victory which played out in front of a 7,089 strong crowd. For five of the Midleton starting team, there was sweet atonement having been part of the side which lost the 2018 final to Ardscoil Rís.

Christians, bidding to secure a first ever Harty crown, will rue a number of goal chances which they failed to put away. A measly total of five points from play, also, is a stat which they’ll be disappointed with. On 44 minutes, Padraig Power could – and probably should – have had a Christians goal. Midleton ‘keeper Jack McGann and defender Cormac O’Brien kept the sliotar out, play was worked down the other end with Ross O’Regan earning a free which Ryan McCarthy converted to edge Midleton into a 1-10 to 0-12 lead.



The sides were level at 1-7 to 0-10 at the end of a tentative first-half which failed to catch fire. Both sides created ample goal chances, but a lack of composure in pulling the trigger, along with two excellent blocks, one by Christians goalkeeper Cian Long and the other by his teammate Cillian O’Donovan, meant Jason Hankard’s third-minute major – the Fr O’Neill’s forward touched Ryan McCarthy’s free to the net – was the sole green flag of the half.

A Ross O’Regan point followed the goal to put Midleton four ahead, an ideal start which lay in stark contrast to their poor opening 12 months ago. That said, Christians soon arrived at the pace of proceedings and clipped seven of the next eight scores. Padraig Power was responsible for three of these, with his Blarney clubmate Declan Hanlon sniping a pair of points.

Midleton’s tactic at the other end of the field was to pump high ball in on top of Hankard and they were experiencing some joy in this regard. Two Ryan McCarthy placed ball efforts – the second stemming from a brilliant Cian Long save to deny Joe Stack – had the East Cork college back level, 1-4 to 0-7, on 22 minutes. It was tit for tat from there to the break, Cathal Hickey and Shane Barrett throwing over fine points for their respective sides.

In the end, it was the two goals which proved the difference.



Scorers for MIdleton CBS: R McCarthy (0-6, 0-5 frees, 0-1 ‘65); R O’Regan (0-4, 0-2 frees); J Stack (1-1); J Hankard (1-0); C Hickey (0-1 each).
