The Depressed Cork GAA Reaction To Yet Another Appalling Day

The Depressed Cork GAA Reaction To Yet Another Appalling Day
By Gavin Cooney

Eight months on from hitting rock bottom, Cork GAA might just have hit rock bottom. Cork fans are increasingly dealing in degrees of despair, hoping that this weekend's result is officially rock bottom, with no further to fall, since the lowest and most dejected thing in fortune has no fear. Cork GAA fans, however, have much to fear yet, as they find new depths to plumb as the weeks go by. Their hurlers lost to Kilkenny, on a scoreline of 0-22 to 0-15: disappointing, but not exactly despair-inducing.

The footballers, however, have been heavily beaten by Clare in Division 2: the final score reading 2-11 to 0-09 in Clare's favour. Colm O'Neill missed a penalty in the last minute, depriving the scoreboard of even a sheen of gloss. It's an undoubtedly fine achievement by the Banner: it's their first victory over Cork since 1997. The result means Clare leapfrog Cork int he table, and more or less disabuses Cork of any notions regarding Division One football in 2018.

There's an argument to say that the Cork hurlers are behind everyone in the Munster Championship at the moment, and as for the footballers, are they the fourth best team in Munster?
