The Cork Intermediate Hurling Championship (known for sponsorship reasons as the Evening Echo Cork County Intermediate Hurling Championship) is an annual hurling competition organised by the Cork County Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association. Originally established in 1909 for the second tier teams, the championship has, since 2004, been contested by the third tier hurling teams in the county of Cork in Ireland.

The series of games are played during the summer and autumn months with the county final currently being played in October. The prize for the winning team is the Paddy Walsh Cup. The championship uses a double elimination format whereby each team is guaranteed at least two games.

27 clubs currently participate in the Intermediate Championship. The all-time record-holders are Ballincollig and Glen Rovers, who have won the competition seven times.

Aghada are the title-holders after defeating Éire Óg by 0-16 to 0-9 in the 2017 championship decider.[1]

History[edit]

The Cork Intermediate Hurling Championship dates back to 1909, however, in 2003 it was decided to split the grade into Premier Intermediate and ordinary Intermediate. In its inaugural year in 2004, the Premier Intermediate grade was confined to sixteen clubs while the lowest ranked intermediate teams from 2003 were joined by the Junior Championship winners as well as the individual divisional winners - Argideen Rangers, Kanturk, Carrigaline, Blackrock and Watergrasshill. Grenagh, who won the Muskerry division in the junior grade, declined the invitation. In earlier years the winners of both the Premier Intermediate and Intermediate grades would have a play-off to decide which team would represent Cork in the Munster Intermediate Club Hurling Championship. In recent years the provincial place has been reserved for the Premier Intermediate champions.

The Cup[edit]

The winning team is presented with the Paddy Walsh Cup. Walsh was a native of Castlemartyr and served the club with distinction as a player, coach and administrator.
