WHAT'S IN A NAME. . .

WHAT have Cork's women got that their men still don't have? A handful of All-Ireland medals – yes. But they also have a sponsor.

Yes, JBM's boys may have spanked Tipp's hurlers last weekend, but they wore a charity logo on their jerseys for their league opener because the Rebel County still haven't nailed down a replacement sponsor for long-time supporters O2.

In contrast Cork camogie, who also beat the Premier County last weekend though not by the same margin (0-19 to 2-10) secured a new sponsor – Costcutter – in time for the start of the National League.
