CLONAKILTY defender Thomas Clancy has been recalled to the Cork senior football panel.

Clancy (30) is the latest West Cork footballer to be drafted into manager John Cleary’s set-up in recent weeks, as both Bantry Blues’ Ruairi Deane and Tadhg MacCarthaigh clubman Brian O’Driscoll have both returned to the county panel.

Clonakilty man Clancy, who played a key role at full back in his club’s run to the 2021 Cork Premier SFC final, has a long association with the Cork senior football team, making his championship debut back in 2013 – but his inter-county career has been riddled with injuries. 

Clancy is one of several additions to John Cleary’s senior football panel for 2023, with Castlehaven’s Cathal Maguire also called into the set-up after a strong championship campaign with his club.

Castlehaven's Cathal Maguire is in with the Cork senior football panel.


Cork are working with a panel of 43 players, with Darragh Moynihan (Mallow), Alan Quinn (Macroom), Darragh Cashman (Millstreet) and Liam O’Connell (Ballincollig) have also been called into the squad. First up for Cork is a McGrath Cup clash with Kerry on January 4th in Páirc Uí Rinn, at 7pm.
