HAPPY NEW YEAR
Wishing all readers and supporters of The Corkman a very Happy New Year. should be the first fundamental in any given year.
A difficult task it is, but over the past two years Boher have been the football team of the year in Duhallow and long may that continue.
They have presently a very talented panel that are not shot of commitment, maybe its just a case of getting the right blend at the right time.
However, as in the racing world there is a dark horse in every field, at every starting line.
So, keep the whip in the hand and don’t forget to keep an eye back under your shoulder – don’t get caught on the line – best of luck.
