Inter County Hurling Last Friday night a very young Cork Senior hurling team which included Conor Lehane (0-06, 1 free) took on a seasoned UCC side in the annual Canon O’Brien Cup at the Mardyke. The College emerged victorious on a scoreline of 0-22 to 1-13. On Sunday afternoon in Mallow a more experienced Cork team defeated Kerry by 1-28 to 0-18 in the Co Op Superstores Munster Senior Hurling league, Killian Burke played a corner back but unfortunately had to come off early injured.

Colleges Hurling On Wednesday next a number of our Club players will represent their respective schools in the Harty Cup Munster Colleges hurling quarter finals. At Bansha Midleton CBS will take on Ard Scoil Rís and at Church Rd Blackrock the derby game between CBC and St Colman’s takes place, both games start at 1.30pm.

Hurling & Football Meeting The first meeting of the Club Executive will take place on Monday next the 9th at 8.30pm, all officers, board reps, subcommittee reps and team managers are requested to attend.

The Hurling & Football Officers of 1967 50 year ago the Officers and the Committee of the Hurling & Football Club were as follows; President – E.J. Canon Fox P.P Dean of Cloyne Chairman – Bob Parker, Vice Chairman – William Ramsell, Secretary – Billy Cody , Treasurer – Tim Kirby, Football Secretary – Tony O’Donoghue, County Board Rep – Seamus Durkin. The appointment of Billy Cody as Secretary at the exceptionally young age of only 16 years old was the subject of a lengthy discussion at a County Board meeting, concerns were raised about the huge responsibility trust upon him. The Chairman Sean Barrett concluded “that this might not be too young an age if the boy had the capacity for the work”. Billy was to prove him so right becoming a more than able officer of the Club and the East Cork Board for many years.
