On the 16th & 17th  of July, Micheal Mc Sweeney and Trevor Horgan both played for the Cork A Football team in the Munster U16 tournament in Limerick. The first round was against Waterford with an easy victory for Cork - final score of 8-17 to 1-2. That evening they played North Kerry, this was a closer game with Cork  only pulling away from Kerry in the last 10 minutes. The final score in that game was 2-7 to 0- 6. On Sunday the 17th  they played Tipperary in the final in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick.  The game was a close contest with Tipperary leading at half time 0-5 to 0- 4.  However, the Cork team fought back keeping Tipperary scoreless in the second half and eventually winning out 1-9 to 0-5.  Both Michael and Trevor played in large parts of the games over the weekend.
