“With the hands of Our Lord” ♦️ Horgan commits to 17th Cork season

Neil McManus, and Ciaran Carey give their thoughts on the news that Patrick Horgan is committing for a 17th season with Cork

Neil McManus, and Ciaran Carey give their thoughts on the news that Patrick Horgan is committing for a 17th season with Cork.

Neil McManus is not surprised that “incredible” Patrick Horgan will continue to line out for Cork into his 17th season in 2024.

The Glen Rovers man found himself on the bench under Kieran Kingston last season but was restored to the attack once Pat Ryan took over for 2023.

Horgan had one of his best seasons under the Sarsfields man and put up some excellent scoring tallies as the Rebels narrowly missing out on the All-Ireland series.

“He’s incredible,” says McManus, who has just retired from Antrim duty.

“I had a few messages with him last night and this morning, he is just something else.

“Even the way he’s moving, I think he was Cork’s best player in the championship, certainly their best forward as I know Ciaran Joyce has been incredible for them of late.

“He’s just been one of the best players in Ireland now for maybe a dozen years, and he so rarely lets Cork down.

“A season that he wouldn’t be overly with is last year when they were missing him, and he’s such a key component of that team.

“When you lose a key man, and looking at Galway with Joe Canning, he’s your go-to; in his last game against Waterford, the last two puckouts went on him when he set up a goal for Jason Flynn and then scores a point from play.

“Those people aren’t growing on trees no matter what county you’re from and Patrick Horgan is still moving so well.

“The runs he’s making, the way he’s able top open up defences. He has an incredible eye for a score and has the hands of our Lord.
