This week's 24-page sports section is not to be missed!


IN this week’s Southern Star packed 24-page sports section, we have a three-page special on the St Fachtna’s de la Salle Corn Ui Mhuiri and Hogan Cup winning team of 1991.

We profile the 20 players on the panel to see what happened to them, in football and life, after they left St Fachtna’s, plus we tracked down the coach of the time, John Brady, to Cavan, so he could share his memories.

Also, we have a fantastic competition with two pairs of tickets up for grabs to watch Bandon’s Conor Hourihane captain Barnsley in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final at Wembley on April 3rd.

There is a feature interview with Munster player Darren Sweetnam plus an interview with the West Cork Sports Star of the Month for January, Anna O’Neill from Ballinacarigga.

Plus we have Newcestown’s reaction to the new county U21 hurling championship, a preview of the MJL Division 1 clash between Clonakilty and Bandon, a tribute to Barryroe’s Paddy Murphy, plus a lot more!

Pick up a copy on Thursday – you won’t regret it!
