Corofin Boss Praises “Outstanding” Martin Farragher For Bouncing Back After Red Card

Corofin put on one of the most dominant displays seen in an All-Ireland final yesterday at Croke Park, as they saw off Nemo Rangers 2-19 to 0-10.

Gary Sice and Martin Farragher scored 1-05 and 0-06 respectively as the Cork club had no answer.

It was particularly fitting for Farragher, who was wrongly sent off in the semi-final win over Moorefield and had his ban overturned.

Farragher was everywhere, and struck some sweet scores to propel his side further into the lead.

Speaking after the win, manager Kevin O’Brien was quick to give credit to the man of the match.

“Martin Farragher was outstanding. I think he deserves huge credit.

“The sending off was unfortunate in the semi-final, but the way he conducted himself and the manner he looked after himself in the last few weeks… We kind of knew that the decision would be overturned, so Martin was really focused.

“Fair play to him for that. I think he kicked six points. He loves this place, last time he was here I think he kicked 1-01 or 1-02, hopefully we’ll be back here again soon.”

Corofin have now joined St Vincent’s of Dublin and St Finbarr’s of Cork on the roll of honour, with three titles.
