Cork lose points

The C.C.C.C. of the GAA announced on Tuesday that they had taken the decision that Cork should forfeit the Allianz National League points to the opponents that they failed to meet in the first two rounds of the leagues, i.e. Meath and Dublin in football and Kilkenny and Waterford in hurling. Cork have also been fined €400 per game unfulfilled. The remaining games in the National Leagues will take place as scheduled. (As we went to press Kilkenny hurlers offered to play Cork this weekend!).    This will mean that Cork footballers’ first game after the recent strike will be against Roscommon in Kiltoom on Sunday, 2 nd of March.
