Sporting Stars Send Best Wishes Ahead of #MatchesForMick This Week

Cork and international sports personalities have been sending messages of support to Bishopstown club-man Mick Cronin ahead of the #matchesformick event in Bishopstown GAA club this Thursday and Friday.

Mick, 52, suffered life-changing injuries from a workplace fall last November leaving him with no movement from the shoulders down. Cork GAA personalities such as Dr Con Murphy, Diarmuid O’ Sullivan, Kieran Kingston, Dinny Allen, and Conor Counihan have been amongst fifty sportspeople offering encouragement to Mick, his wife Karen, daughter Ailbhe and son Sean ahead of the two-day Gaelic games marathon involving 15 Cork GAA clubs.

Liverpool’s Carabao Cup-winning goalkeeper Coaimhin Kelleher also contacted Kiskeam native Mick to tell him to keep focused on his treatment and recovery.

Twenty-five matches will take place over two days, from U6 boys and girls to the senior men and women teams in support of Bishopstown GAA member Mick.

Highlights over the two days include the senior hurling game on the 17th at 11:30 am between Bishopstown and neighbours St Finbarrs and the senior ladies’ football game at 5:30 pm between Mna Maroon and Keelnameela.

Meanwhile, on Friday 18th March, Mick’s homeplace of Kiskeam provide the opposition for Bishopstown at 11:30 am, while the club’s minor hurlers entertain St. Catherines at 5:30 pm. The clubhouse will also be open to feature the racing from Cheltenham.
