Headed up to Newry on Sunday. Pretty decent performance for the most part and looked the better team throughout. Went from from conceding 3-16 against Tipp to 10 points on Sunday so obviously learned from our mistakes the week previous which is a good thing. 3 or 4 of Down's points coming from silly frees given away and a couple more in stoppage time when the game was up and didn't really get a sniff of a goal chance .

Man of the match was Mark Collins with a tally of 1-5 , he really stood up in the second half when Down were having their best patch of the game. Kicked 2 points after Down leveled it followed by a fortuitous goal gifted by Down but in fairness Mark took his goal very well. Was impressed with Sean White, he has a very sweet kick of the ball and scored too lovely points in the first have. Kevin Flahive put in a decent shift too I thought.

M White - Did his job, didn't have much to do
S Ryan - Decent performance, didn't do anything wrong
J O’Sullivan - Got sent off for 2 yellows, these things happen but also did his job fine
M McSweeney - Big improvement, showed for the ball a lot. Will be happy with his day out
K Flahive - Worked really hard, seems an intelligent player
B O’Driscoll - Not the best day at the office
T Clancy - Didn't notice him too much, which isn't a bad thing as he didn't nothing wrong
I Maguire- Worked hard as always , could do with lifting the head more and look for the better lay off pass
C O’Hanlon - Did grand, was taken off off in the 2nd half with a bad knock
S White - Had a very good first half, kicked too lovely points , not afraid to have a pop at the posts from distance
K Crowley - Played a roaming role, did fine.
R Deane - Same as Ian Maguire above
J O’Rourke - Poor enough, hauled off mid-way through the 2nd half, could have been earlier to be honest
C O’Neill- Quiet enough is the first-half as were all the full-forward line but came to life more the the 2nd and kicked a few lovely frees
M Collins - Similar Colm, was brilliant in the second half and will be an important player for us in 2018

Sherlock and Hurley came on late on as did Peter Kelleher who kicked the score of the match.

All in all a good day at he office, Down were very poor but we got the job done and the 2 points. Win our next 2 games at home to Louth and Cavan and we'll be save enough from a relegation dog-fight and the game against Meath in Navan will decide if we will be in a good position to gain promotion or not.

Patience is key with this team, a few players to come back yet.

I appreciate the report, Tanora, and the "how they did" list. It helps those of us who can't do long journeys any more and are rather rusty on the present Cork footballers keep in touch.

Thanks for that report Tanora. Great stuff.
Fair play to TG4. That was a decent clip they showed last night.
Hard to fathom how RTE 2 and the normally efficient Ml.Lyster failed to even give the result of our match,and only
gave the Meath result because Moyles the ex player was on the analyst panel with the diver.

Mark Collins is too feckin honest. He tells us today in the Zaminer that he was going for a point when scoring his goal.
He could have milked that one for the rest of his life if he wasn't so honest.

Many thanks 'lad' for posting that. Tough to hear such a harrowing tale of woe. Hopefully he will play football again, at least with
his club.

What is the purpose of not naming the full complement of subs you're allowed, bizarre

Will we be changing jersies. Largest county v Smallest County. Was the previously mentioned Final the last meeting of the sides in a competitive fixture? Both teams would argue that 2010 was their last big year.....

We narrowly beat them in Portlaoise en route to the All Ireland final in 2007, in a Round 3 qualifier - https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/cork-k ... h-1.950963

Louth changed to white that day.

Wife took me to paris that weekend for my 30th. I repaid this romantic gesture by traipsing around paris looking for a pub showing that match
