Thrived on being written off last year though so I'd imagine this would come as expected again for the coming year. People keep going on about knocknagree etc but they've never kicked on. Surely the pressure is on them this year to deliver.


I think it's unfair to say Knocknagree haven't kicked on. If you're measuring that solely on the fact that they haven't won the county then yes, but they were beaten fairly comfortably by Bandon in 2015 after winning their first Duhallow title in well over twenty years. Last year they had a great win against Kilmurry and two brilliant matches against Gabriel Rangers, where they left it after them the second day (led by 0-9 to 1-1 at one stage in the second half). No disrespect to Shamrocks but I think they had the easier side of the draw and it was generally accepted that the winners of the Knocknagree/Gabriel Rangers match would go on and finish the job.

It's going to be a very tough ask to do three in-a-row in Duhallow though.

Who'll win it out North Cork Star?

Muskerry draws were done over the weekend too. Ballinora and Cloughduv on the same side and due to meet in a semi final. Massive incentive for the likes of Kilmichael and Iveleary on the perceived weaker side of the draw to reach a mid Cork final and also the last 16 of the county.

My fancy for North Cork are Ballyhooly. Even though they never won a Junior A North Cork, they have been constantly improving over the last 3 seasons. They are motoring well this season and now that Cork minor Diarmuid Linehan is eligible, he will be a big addition to them also.

Harbour Rovers have recovered well from their first round defeat to Clyda Rovers and are going for 3 in a row, so you can't rule them out.

Clyda and Dromina who have Cork Minors Brian Buckley and David Jones on their side, are two teams you can't rule out either.

Kilmichael have been beaten by Ballincollig second side. Iveleary must be favorites for this division and the county title. Kilmurry also deserve a shot at county. Possibly the two best teams are in the division.

That was hurling I was referring spongebob, with regards football you're right. Iveleary beat Donoughmore tonight to reach the semi final v Canovee.
