TURNING POINT: Nemo's David Niblock gets his marching orders
Cork's Munster Club king pins: Nemo Rangers were shocked in the All-Ireland Club semi-final on Saturday as Connacht Champions St. Brigid's over turned them. Nemo finished with 13 men. David Niblock's sending off late in the first-half was probably the turning point of the game, while Aidan O'Reilly's red card in the 71st minute made no difference to the outcome of the game.
'The better team won'  -  Nemo manager Eddie Kirwan
Afterwards Nemo manager Eddie Kirwan admitted that the 'better team won on the day. We need to go back to the drawing board.' Undoubtedly though, the first half sending off made a difference to the outcome. When all is said and done, there was only two points between the teams, so who knows what would have happened if Nemo had finished the game with 15 men.
I delayed reporting this story because I don't like reporting on defeats for Cork clubs/teams/people. However, Nemo have had a very good season and the famous southside Cork city club will be back at the forefront of club GAA in the not-too-distant future.
