Cork face Kerry in McGrath Cup
Cork’s footballers return to action this evening in the McGrath Cup.
John Cleary’s side face All Ireland Champions Kerry in Pairc ui Rinn, where there’s a 7pm start.
Cleary named his team yesterday, and there’s a recall for Brian O’Driscoll. The 28 year old Tadhg Mac Carthaigh player is back in a red shirt for the first time in four and a half years, and is named at left half forward – his last appearance was the 2018 All Ireland Football Final defeat to Tyrone.
Knocknagree’s Daniel O’Mahony returns after missing out year due to work commitments, while Clyda Rovers’ Conor Corbett is named at corner forward after recovering from the cruciate injury he suffered in 2021 – Corbett featured for Clyda in the championship as they reached the SAFC semi finals.
