A never to be forgotten Croke Park day for tiny Cork club Ballymartle
Sunday February 14th 2011 was nothing less than an epic day for Cork GAA. Two Cork clubs lifted All-Ireland silverware in the sweetest possible way at Croke Park yesterday, defeating Kilkenny sides to complete a thrilling REBEL double!
Ballymartle and Meelin won the AIB All - Ireland  club intermediate hurling and junior title in GAA headquarters respectively, following on from Blarney and Dripsey in 2009, as Leeside hurling got a fantastic boost so early in the year.
Meelin: 2011 All-Ireland Junior Club Hurling Champions
Ballymartle beat a highly rated Dicksboro 3-15 to 1-20 after a long-range free by corner-forward Darren McCarthy - who plays in goal for the Cork U21s - flew into the net in the last minute. They also had 'keeper Declan McCarthy to thank for their glorious win, after he made three crucial saves over the hour's play.
Cork's Coláiste Chríost Ri also reached Munster Coleges Football Final
Meelin were always in control against John Lockes, and could even introduce 38 year-old veteran Tom O'Mahony in injury-time. Tom, who has dedicated his life to the club, first played for the club in 1988.
Coláiste Chríost Rí made it a triumvarante of Cork club triumphs on Sunday by reaching the Corn Uí Mhuirí Final after upsetting the odds to beat Tralee CBS in the semi-final at Knocknagree. They will face Dingle in Killarney on March 6th.
