There will be “no excuses” from Cork if they fail to qualify for the All-Ireland SHC series, insists captain Seamus Harnedy.

Speaking to GAA.ie ahead of tomorrow’s eagerly-anticipated Munster SHC clash with arch rivals Tipperary, Harnedy says the Rebel County’s destiny is very much in their own hands.

“I firmly believe Munster has never been stronger, and each team getting four opportunities - each team can have a subpar performance - hinge on one performance. It’s unbelievable to have that, and it’s the best way forward.

“You have no excuses, to get into the All-Ireland series. You’ve had four chances to get through so you have to hold your hand up if you don't take it. No excuses.

“Last year I didn’t know what to expect but I think in retrospect it was a wonderful success, and I think the one criticism hanging over the Championship has been rectified in the sense that that break has been brought in for this year.”
