            It's been a special few weeks for Cork soccer.  With Cork City FC having dramatically secured promotion to the Airtricity League;  their female counterparts have become Ireland's newest football club.
            The Cork Women's Football Club is Ireland's newest football club and they took to the pitch in CIT on Sunday 13th November to play in their first ever National League game. FAI Development Officer for Women's Soccer in Cork and team manager, Dave Bell, says that they have had a huge response so far from both players and the public.
             "The response to the team has been fantastic. We actually had great difficulty in cutting the panel because there was so many players involved, but that is hardly a bad complaint and the standard in the team is very high because we have some great players involved," - says Bell.
Cork's new dual fotball code star: Valerie Mulcahy
             Great players is something of an understatement. When the Cork side play Dublin based Peamount United this Sunday, they will be looking to draw on the experience of Irish Senior international's Marie Curtin, Sylvia Gee, Jenny Critchley and Susan Donovan as well as Valerie Mulcahy, who has previously played with the senior Irish team and has also won six All Ireland titles with the Cork Ladies Gaelic Football team.   Exciting times indeed for soccer in Cork.
