Kanturk repeated their 2012 first round succes over Grenagh in the Tom Creedon Cup when defeating the Mid Cork side at Mallow on Sunday 3rd February on a 1-08 to 1-04 score line. It was a physical encounter with Kanturk holding an interval lead of 1-05 to 0-03 and despite both sides having a player dismissed in the second half, Kanturk held out for the victory and set up a quarter final tie with Na Pairsaigh.
The city side were relegated from senior football last season and will be expected to be too strong for a Kanturk side which will be short on numbers due to monk leaving cert exams. The game is set for Na Pairsaigh grounds with an 8pm start on Wednesday 6th February. Macroom await the winners in the Semi Final on Saturday 9th February.
