    Frank just did that. Instead of taking on board feedback and assistance, he drove Donal Óg to the fupping IMP.

    Walkabout tends to lead to return.

      Maybe young Donal could be like Frank's prodigal son.

        Frank has a special son already, more Protege than Prodigal. . . .Diarmuid is his name.

        They won't kill the fatted calf for Donal Óg.

          As an aside, happy with how the football set up is shaping up. Great looking backroom team. James McCarthy a top class coach, something Cork haven't had in years. Peader Healy will hopefully bring back the toughness and man management that went missing the last 2 years.

            But what will we do in Glengarriff now that we've lost our only garda? I anticipate a deluge of petty crime now that Peadar is gone. Plus think of the poor sheep - there won't be a ewe left unmolested in the whole parish!

              Good luck to Peader, the players have great time for him which is more than half the battle. When did you last see sheep roaming the village OD ? they are cute enough to stay safe up by the tunnels..

                What's this I hear?

                The Dubs to play in Nowlan Park in the Leinster Football Championship?

                A number of questions arise:
                • How will the pitch be decontaminated afterwards?
                • How long with the decontamination process take place afterwards? In other words when will it be safe for Kilkenny to recommence training?
                • Has any consideration been given to the possibility of a few old codgers, on their way home from Langton's, say, of a Saturday, wandering into Nowlan Park, thinking there's a match on and being confronted with this strange "sport" which is alien to every fibre of their being?
                • Has the risks to the mental health of these people been considered?
                • Is this, in fact, a fiendish plot drawn up by their neighbours from the far side of Urlingford to deal a mortal blow to the Kilkenny Hurling Psyche?

                  Harty Cup Third Round.

                  Christian Brothers' College Cork. 2-7 St Flannan College, Ennis 0-11.

                  It's the end of the World as we know it.

                    Do they give scholarships to hurlers now?

                      Not sure if they have yet, but they are looking to.

                      I have heard from one of teachers from the school, who has mentioned this.

                      Hope it works out for them.

                      Strange seeing Christian and Rochestownn College as the two strong City schools.

                      The last Cork winning minor hurling captain was a Christians student.

                        So he was. Whatever became of him I wonder? :-)

                          Well, buying in the half the Munster Youths team got them nowhere last year, so they've clearly cut their losses on rugby and moved on.

                            Never reached his hurling potential.

                              In all fairness, his da would have been an extremely hard act to follow.

                                Don't think scholarships would have much impact. In rugby, any young lad within an arses roar of Cork has to go either CBC or Pres to make the grade. Much less relevant in GAA what school you go to, and their local competitors are all free anyway.

                                CBC is plenty big enough to be able grow a strong hurling team alongside the rugby culture. It's great to see, and the students will be all the better for it.
