Memorable double but Kanturk hungry for more
Cork IFC final Kanturk in 2017 repeat Bandon’s 2016 double, while Blackrock/st Michael’s and Mallow both reached two finals too – it’s possible for dual clubs to thrive. Mitchelstown’s first three points were condensed into the first three minutes – their next three came as the first half moved towards injury time. Mitchelstown crowded the middle in the first half and were rewarded with the bulk of the possession but couldn’t convert that into scores.
Kanturk brought Aidan Walsh out from full-forward in the second half and reaped rewards. Ryan Walsh scored three points for Kanturk and was involved in the build-up to at least as many more.
Alan Long used the advantage rule judiciously and was sensible with his distribution of cards.
