Mardyke Pitches gearing up for September

As we get closer to September, the green fields of the Mardyke are being readied for another busy college season. Already the GAA pitch has seen plenty of action in July and August as the Rebel Og season gathers momentum. The Cork ladies Football and Camoige teams are also fine tuning their preparations for the business end of the season on the hallowed turf of the Mardyke.

The Rugby posts were erected today as the new season swings into action over the next few weeks. UCC Rugby club are back in pre-season already while Munster under-age teams who have been using the Dyke as a training base for the Summer play the exiles on Sunday at 3pm.

The groundsmen in UCC have played a blinder over the last few months carrying out maintenance that should see the famous old grounds ready for another grueling autumn/winter schedule of games.IMG_0711
