In Cork we’re proud to work in conjunction with the historic club of Na Piarsaigh. The Na Piarsaigh crest has a very interesting story to it. It is said that the symbolic red hand of Ulster with severed thumb was selected as the club crest after careful consideration. The red hand represents the island that is Ireland, the severed thumb the six north-eastern counties still under foreign rule. The legend is that when Ireland is reunited the thumb will again rejoin the fingers to create a strong and useful hand.
The club facilities are second to none with a range of outdoor and indoor facilities including the indoor Hurling Arena and the recently restored Handball and Hurling alleys.
