Harty hurling on Leeside

Wednesday, 6th February, 2019 4:54pm

A hurling showcase is set for Leeside with confirmation that the Dr Harty Cup Final is to take place in Páirc Uí Rinn.

The final, between Christians Brothers College and Midleton CBS, is the first final to feature two Cork teams in 25 years. The pairing will ensure the cup will find its home in Cork for the first time since it was last won by Midleton CBS in 2006.

The game, which will be played on 16 February, will be preceded by the Munster Colleges Under 19 ‘B’ Final and will also be contested by two Cork schools, St Francis College Rochestown and Hamilton High School Bandon.

As if that wasn't enough reason to make your way to Boreenmanna Road on Saturday week, Cork will play Clare under lights in the National Hurling League later that evening at 7.15pm.

It had been mooted that the schools double header would possibly be played at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, but following last weekend's pitch controversy, Páirc Uí Rinn will host all three games.

The GAA confirmed earlier this week that it had moved Cork's League game against Clare and that it would be a match by match decision as to where Cork's remaining hurling and football home games would be played. In a statement released by the GAA, the Cork County Board said: “The playing surface at Páirc Uí Chaoimh for last weekend’s Allianz Leagues games was unacceptable.

“In the short term, we will continue to use best endeavours to ensure the surface is kept to an acceptable standard. We will assess the pitch each Monday, in advance of the upcoming Allianz League games, and advise CCCC accordingly.”

Fixtures 16 February:
