Storm Jorge is expected to hit on Saturday morning.

EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS have ensured the postponement of Saturday’s rearranged Dr Harty Cup final for a second time.  

The fixture – between CBC Cork and St Flannan’s College – had been set for Mallow with a 1pm throw-in time. 

But, with a Status Yellow rainfall warning issued for Munster and Storm Jorge expected to hit on Saturday morning, concerns began to grow earlier today that the decider would have to be moved once again.  

The final had originally been fixed for Saturday, 15 February but Storm Dennis put paid to those plans and a litany of games were postponed across the country as a result of the appalling weather. 

A date for the new fixture will be announced tomorrow.
