Imokilly never tested by CIT

CORK hurling champions Newtownshandrum had representatives at Páirc Uí Rinn last night scouting the opposition for their upcoming Evening Echo SHC quarter-final clash but they might still be wondering how difficult that particular assignment will be after watching Imokilly advance by virtue of a 1-18 to 0-13 win over lacklustre CIT.

THE 1-23 to 1-19 scoreline doesn’t do justice to Ballymartle’s superiority over Carrigaline in the Evening Echo Cork Co IHC final at Páirc Uí Chaoímh yesterday.
