Turners Cross set to host Munster Senior Cup final

Thu, Jul 30 2020

Cork City will take on Rockmount on the 4th of August in the Munster Senior Cup final with a 7:30pm kick off.

Turners Cross will host the decider for the fifth consecutive season and the game will be held behind closed doors.

Fans Voice TV, a local sports broadcasting group, will be showing the game live for free on Tuesday evening.

Four in a row chasing Cork City booked their place in the final last weekend with a 3-2 win over Munster Senior League side Midleton. Rockmount made sure of their place in the final on Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Carrigaline United at Ballea Park.

The two teams last met in the quarter finals in 2016. That day at Bishopstown Stadium, Rockmount won on penalties following a 1-1 draw in normal time. The north-side based club reached the final that season and were beaten 2-1 by Cobh Ramblers.

Rockmount last met City in the 1998 final and were beaten 1-0 on the day. Since then they have reached three more finals, all under the management of Billy Cronin.

Out of every piece of silverware in local and national football, the Munster Senior Cup is the one which has repeatedly alluded Rockmount in their 96-year history.

To Neale Fenn, who won the trophy as a player in 2005, the game will be his first cup final with City since talking over the club in August 2019.
