THE draws for the opening round of the Mid Cork Junior A Football and Hurling Championships were made during the week.

In the JAFC, current holders Iveleary commence with an opening round meeting against Inniscarra.

Iveleary won the 2019 Mid Cork title in style, following what was a comprehensive 2-21 to 1-10 victory over Aghinagh in the decider.

With the crop of players which they currently possess in their ranks, there is every chance that Iveleary can add another Muskerry championship crown to their trophy collection this year.

As for the runners up of 2019, Aghinagh have a tough opening round assignment when they take on Canovee, a team themselves who will harbour strong aspirations of reaching the latter stages of this competition in 2020.

Kilmurry, who will have felt they underperformed last term, are sure to be determined to be right in the mix for the honours again this term.

They kick off their JAFC title bid with a meeting against Cill Na Martra, who should be no pushovers given the general progress of the club in recent years.

Cloughduv have seen their hurling stock soar in recent years and 2019 in the JAHC saw their second string outfit secure championship glory.

The holders will kick off their 2020 championship campaign with a clash against Donoughmore.

The runners up from last year, Éire Óg, have an opening round meeting against Ballinora on their agenda.

Overall, the draws should ensure there are plenty of competitive affairs across the Muskerry region to look forward to over the coming months.
