Daniel Kearney has denied leaving the Cork squad after last Sunday's loss to Tipperary in the Munster hurling championship.
The Rebels were soundly beaten 0-22 to 0-13 by the Premier County after their attempt at using a sweeper system backfired. The whole team malfunctioned on the day but Kearney seemed to be blamed more the most, with the 26-year-old called ashore after just 32 minutes during the clash at Semple Stadium.
After the game, there were reports that the midfielder may have left the panel as a result but Kearney tonight issued an emphatic statement on Twitter denying the rumours.
"Just to clarify, I have not left the Cork hurling panel, and the recent rumours that would say otherwise are totally false and have no basis," he tweeted.
