All roads lead to Pairc Ui Rinn on this Saturday, February 16th, as Midleton CBS meet Christian Brothers College in the Final of the Dr Harty Cup Munster Senior Colleges Hurling Final, writes John Cashman.

 It’s the blue riband of second level of Colleges Hurling in the province and the novel all Cork pairing ensures a Leeside success for the first time since 2006, when Midleton CBS under the captaincy of Paudie O’Sullivan captured the coveted silverware, defeating St Flannan’s on 2-8 to 0-12, Now the famed East Cork hurling academy are back in the Final, hoping to make up for the disappointment of last year’s Final set back against Ar Scoil Ris.  Awaiting the C.B.S on Saturday is another huge challenge against C.B.C who have been making great strides as a hurling force in recent years and now stand on the doorstep of an historic triumph.
