On Saturday 24th August the Inter Regional Football Finals took place
Its been a long year with eight, U14 regional teams, taking to the fields at different stages leading up to the finals. A big well done to all involved from our many players, mentors and of course the parents who have driven them to the different games over the last several months.
Cork GAA and Rebel Óg launched an exciting new competition for U14 players in the county in Pairc Ui Chaoimh on the 7th May, 2019 .
Under this new structure, eight regional teams were formed, broken up into two groups of four teams to play in a league format with the next phase of the competition pitting the top two teams in each group in to the Cup with the third and fourth placed teams entering the Shield.
The teams were drawn up on a geographical basis, but with soft borders on the traditional divisional boundaries to ensure all teams were of a similar standard.
This new structure casts the net far and wide catering for more players between hurling and football in games running from May to August in both codes. This new format breaks away from the regional structure used in the past which consisted of 4 regional teams followed by a move to 48 players who went on to represent Cork at the inter county tournaments.
We would like to thank all involved for making these finals a great day out for the players. The staff at Pairc Ui Rinn, The teams on the day, The mentors, the coaches, the players, the parents and to Conor Counihan for making the presentations on the day.
To the referees who officiated on the day, County Board Coaching Officer Ronan Dwane, our Games Development Staff of James McCarthy, Pat Spratt, Colm Crowley, Sean Crowley, Paudie O Brien, Shane Supple, Paudie Crowley and Games Manager Kevin O’Callaghan and to our County Board and Rebel Og Board we say thank you.
