EVER since he struck a Harty Cup hat-trick for Midleton CBS a couple of weeks before his 16th birthday, Luke O’Farrell has been marked out as a flair player.
“We found a way in our last two games and they’ve been titanic battles. We said that from the get-go if you’re going to have any success it takes everything you have. We spilt ourselves, even if we didn’t play brilliantly... we never died.”
“When you win a trophy, no matter how you do it, everyone says you’re doing the right things and it’s the opposite when you lose. We’ve chatted a bit more this year and we’ve come to realise that nothing is easy, you’ll have tough times. If you stick at it, put in the work, you’ll be there when the game is in the melting pot.”
It’s the business end of the season where club legends are made. The Rearden’s Club All-Stars will also be decided between here and November. It’s the seventh year of the popular scheme for hurlers and footballers, with Brian Lawton (below) the reigning Club Hurler of the Year.
