It was the third game in what was has been a hectic week for the Inniscarra players in the Cork Championship. The frenetic schedule is not over yet.
Last Saturday, October 21st, Inniscarra beat Douglas in a quarter-final replay. The game went to extra-time with Inniscarra winning by a point.
On Wednesday, Inniscarra beat three-time All-Ireland champions Milford in the semi-final, again edging the game by the minimum.
Following their victory against Glen Rovers yesterday, Inniscarra progressed to the Munster Championship.
That game, a semi-final against Inagh/Kilnamona, is scheduled to take place this afternoon - just 24 hours after the throw-in of the Cork county final.
According to Rebecca, one of the Inniscarra players, the Munster council 'refused to budge' on the fixture. Inniscarra played the opening round of the Cork championship in July.
The Munster semi-final makes it four matches in eight days - where's the player welfare in this? Something needs to be done, I don't think this would happen in any other sport or any other county.
