Carlow defender Alan Corcoran reached the landmark 100th game in the county jersey in last Sunday’s Walsh Cup win over Offaly.

Corcoran first lined out for the Barrowsiders against Antrim in 2010 and he has been part of the squad ever since.

The Bagenalstown defender stressed to the Carlow Nationalist that it is an ‘honour’ to line out for his county.

“Every time you go out and play an inter-county game is an honour and I really enjoy it. We will keep going this year and see how it goes,” said Corcoran.

Carlow manager Colm Bonnar heaped praise on his experienced defender stating that he is one of their most consistent hurlers.

“It was a special moment for ‘Alfie’. To get 100 games for your county is some going and takes some application, drive and desire. We are very proud of Alfie. He is one of our most consistent players.”
