O'Neill named as Cork captain

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

Shane O’Neill was last night named as the new Cork Senior hurling captain for the 2011 season.

Manager Denis Walsh confirmed the Bishopstown defender’s selection at training in Mallow on Tuesday night.

Dual star Eoin Cadogan has been installed as vice-captain.

O’Neill, 24, served as vice-captain last year and takes over in the role from Kieran ‘Fraggy’ Murphy.

O’Neill burst onto the inter-county scene in 2006, winning a Munster title as a sub that year, and established a regular starting spot at corner back in ‘08.

Speaking to the Irish Examiner, Walsh, the Rebels boss, said O’Neill was the obvious candidate for the role.

"When we came in 15 months ago, it was always our aim that Shane would be the captain this year,” he said.

“I think Kieran (Murphy) did a great job last year and he was well respected in all sectors. He was fully aware of the situation that he’d be the captain for one year and then Shane would take the role. Kieran is happy now to focus on one role for the coming year.

"Being vice-captain, Shane has had a chance to look at what’s required and is ready for it now. I think he’s the ideal choice for the role and there was no reason to deviate from the original plan.

"He’s certainly seen by both ourselves and the greater public as one of the leading lights in Cork hurling. The same goes for Eoin and both of them have developed really well over the last couple of seasons.”

Meanwhile, Galway football boss Tomás has taken the unprecedented step of naming three captains for next season.

Kieran Fitzgerald, Finian Hanley and last year’s skipper, Michael Meehan will share the role this year, with Ó Flatharta explaining that the decision was made to underline the team ethic he is hoping to foster.

"I have named three captains for the year and our thinking is very team-orientated: we are not about individuals," said Ó Flatharta.
"I expect that we'll have many leaders and captains by the end of the year. The way we think about it is that we don't base it on individuals, it is a team game."
