Spare a thought... say a prayer...for Leeside's Jimmy "Barr" O'Sullivan

We will be doing a wrap-up on the AUL season in the ECHO soon. All cup and league winners, indeed any team happy with the season just finished, is invited to send in a summary of the season, the highlights and the low points, the manager, the players, captain, top scorer, hopes for next season.
Please get your piece in as soon as possible to as space will be limited and it will be a case of first up, first served.

Best wishes to Tom Tully who is retiring from refereeing at the end of the season.

He is also changing jobs and is taking up a position in Munster with Umbro Teamwear. If your team is in the market for gear, anything from footballs to tops, from water bottles to goalkeeper’s gloves, then Tom is your man.

You can get him at 086 0485106 and by email at

Good luck Tom.

Latest AUL fixtures now at

Thanks to Richie Browne

"I see on your site, you have various past tables of the Cork AUL, Do you know where it would be possible to have all the years final tables since the AUL started.
Also, can the final tables of the MSL be obtained since it started.


The final tables on the AUL site ( ) are all I have available. I do not know of anywhere you can find all the past tables together. Presumably, one could go through the old Echo's every year aorund May/June and gather them up in that way.
