CORK’S national hurling league interest ended on March 1, with a 2-18 to 1-16 defeat away to Galway. But Cork’s campaign created more issues than it resolved.
In round three, away to Westmeath, he lined up at right wing-back, even clipping over a sideline cut for good measure, and while he retained the number five shirt for the narrow home defeat to Limerick, the Newtown man swapped this jersey for six again, for the last game against Galway, when Cork’s league involvement was ended with a five-point defeat.
You could imagine the 6' 3” Mary I student in a role similar to the type that Kyle Hayes and Ger Hegarty perform for Limerick.
Of course, Kieran Kingston has plenty of other options to fill these roles, such as Aidan Walsh, Declan Dalton, Seamus Harnedy, and Sean Twomey, but just like it was the correct thing to do to try all available options at centre-back, it is equally the right thing to do to try O’Mahony in the forward line, now.
