On this week’s show we’re looking back on the opening weekend of the county and Carbery football championships and what a weekend it was.

We’ll be joined by John O’Rourke of Carbery Rangers who got their championship campaign off to a flyer with a 2-10 to 1-9 win over Carrigaline.

But before we hear from John we’re going to reflect on some of the weekend’s other big results and storylines.

And to help us do that we’re joined by a man who we hope Star Sport Podcast listeners will become more familiar with over the coming months and that’s the Southern Star’s newest signing, Matthew Hurley AKA @gaa_statsman on Instagram & Twitter.

The lads also reflect on the permanent appointment of John Cleary as Cork football boss.
