The final round of the group stages of the Cork football championships takes place this weekend and with several of the West Cork contingent well-placed and in good form we’re looking ahead on this week’s podcast.

We’re joined by by Thomas O’Rourke of a rejuvenated Carbery Rangers ahead of their top of the table clash with the Barr’s in Ballinascarthy on Sunday with both sides seeking to book a direct ticket to the semi-final.

Before chatting to Thomas, the lads discuss the ongoing Carbery Junior A football championship saga which saw all games postponed at the eleventh hour last weekend.

The Carbery JAFC is currently on hold after Barryroe requested DRA arbitration following their unsuccessful appeal to the County Executive against the Carbery Board.

Kieran brings us the latest.
