CIT win forces fixture change

CIT will be able to compete in this year’s Munster club SHC, if they win next month’s Cork senior decider against Carrigtwohill.

CIT are treated as a club and thus are eligible for the provincial competition.

This year’s Cork SHC decider will take place on October 2 but after yesterday’s shock semi-final results, the Premier IHC final will not act as a curtain-raiser to that clash.

CIT’s victory yesterday has created the complication due to some of their players being involved with their clubs in the Premier IHC. Kilbrittain and Courcey Rovers face off in next Saturday’s semi-final tie, which means either Ross Cashman (Kilbrittain) or Daire Lordan (Courcey Rovers), who featured for CIT yesterday, will be contesting the Premier IHC final and thus a change to the schedule is necessitated.

Yesterday’s senior semi-final results have created the most novel Cork SHC final pairing in years, with the odds on a double of CIT and Carrigtwohill advancing being 8-1 before yesterday’s games.
