Charleville back in the big time as Courceys held at bay

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA -

Cork Premier IHC fi­dal A good free-taker is a vi­tal com­po­nent of any team. But when the reg­u­lar taker is not on the pitch there comes a bit of pressure. Be­tween the 50th and 56th minute Darragh Fitzgib­bon took over the duty, find­ing the range four con­sec­u­tive times. Three broth­ers in the Courcey’s back line. It will be scant con­so­la­tion to Kevin, Brian and Martin Collins but they united to make up half of their de­fen­sive unit. Three se­nior clubs now sit­ting within close prox­im­ity of each other. There will be great in­ter­est down in North Cork in the 2019 se­nior hurl­ing cham­pi­onship draw. Hard luck on Courcey Rovers. But there was ab­so­lutely no shame in this de­feat. Their great cham­pi­onship adventure has come to and end but they have rep­re­sented them­selves and the Car­rigdhoun di­vi­sion with dis­tinc­tion.
