Double joy for Duhallow players

Wednesday, 11th April, 2018 5:06pm

It was a double celebration for the Cork City and County Youth Awards recently with two winners jointly sharing the February award. Kanturk hurler Ryan Walsh and Knocknagree footballer Mike Mahoney were both deemed deserving winners after both teenagers won All-Ireland titles in Croke Park with their respective clubs.

CIT student Walsh, who is a former Cork minor in both football and hurling, made his debut playing midfield on both Kanturk’s premier intermediate hurling and intermediate football teams, winning a county medal in both codes in what was a historic year for the Duhallow-based club.

18 year old Mike Mahoney was a member of the Knocknagree junior football team who beat Westmeath's Multyfarnham at the beginning of February, the defender/midfielder also captained the Knocknagree minor team in 2017 to a brilliant victory in the North Cork Football Championship.

Ryan and Mike received their joint award at a reception at the Metropole Hotel who jointly sponsor the award with John Buckley Sports.
