Kingston pays tribute to departing players


Kieran Kingston has paid tribute to the players released from the Cork senior hurling panel but has stressed the door is not closed to them in the future.

Shane O’Neill, Patrick Cronin, Stephen Moylan, Cian McCarthy, and Paudie O’Sullivan were released by Kingston in the wake of the Allianz Hurling League but the Cork manager insists they could return to the panel at a later date.

"It’s important for me to recognise the lads we’ve released, the sacrifice and commitment they gave to Cork hurling over several years," Kingston is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner.

"They were very unlucky not to win an All-Ireland three years ago, and unlucky also to have played in an era when Cork didn’t win an All-Ireland, that all some of them have to show for their time is a Munster championship medal despite giving huge commitment and massive sacrifices for Cork. That’s very important, to put that on the record.

"The second thing is that the door is never closed — the panel isn’t set in stone forever, with nobody ever having a chance to come back in.

"We’ll be looking at the performances in all the club championships as well as U21, and we’ll be judging players on those performances. Not in a million years is the panel closed, nor would it ever be."
