Niall O’Brien Visits Cork County

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Ireland and Northants wicket-keeper Niall O’Brien was back in Ireland at the weekend taking part in coaching sessions at Cork County.

The visit was a huge success with Niall visiting the Presentation Brothers College gym in the morning to do a session with the schoolboys and then moving onto the Cork County senior practise session in Ashton School where he put the senior and junior squads through their paces.

The large turnout and huge interest in the visit just proves how the game of cricket is growing in popularity on Leeside.

Niall mentioned that “its an absolute pleasure to be coming down and help out. I have so many fond memories of playing in Cork as a kid with Railway Union and scored my first Irish ton at the Mardyke so it has fond memories for me.”

Dermot Giltinan, Cork County Youth Coach, said that “it was a fantastic day for Cork County to have one of Ireland’s leading cricketers down to put the lads through their paces. It is not often that our young players get to learn from an International cricketer of Niall’s class and his great personality and manner really rubbed off on them.”

“The visit has given the game in Cork a huge lift and just highlights the potential that Cork County has at it’s disposal especially with our participation in Leinster Division 2 this season.”
