U21s come from behind
THE Kanturk U21 footballers had to come from behind to fashion a 0-10 to 1-05 victory in the Duhallow championship first round played at Mallow on Wednesday, 19th February.
Kanturk can thank the accuracy of Mark Healy who converted 8 points of their total and steer his side into a semi final place, which will be played in late March.
Kanturk Intermediate footballers got their Division 4 league challenge up and running with a 2-14 to 0-10 home victory over Youghal on Sunday last 23rd February. Goals from Kieran Boyce and veteran Donagh Duane insured a Kanturk victory in their second outing of the season.

The early start is to facilitate players, mentors and supporters travelling to Pairc Ui Rinn for a double header of Cork senior teams in action with the footballers facing Derry at 12.45pm before the hurlers face Offaly later in the afternoon.
