    I wouldn't agree,every club would have realistic targets and local trophies would be a target for most, the boro target would obviously be the fai but they have still lots to play for and for people to right their season off because of one loss is crazy.

    Who are the last club from Cork to win the competition? Would like to see how many winners have come from each county, might get around to doing it over Christmas when I'm free.

    1940s since a Cork side last one it, all the top Cork sides play at intermediate level.

    The last time a Cork AUL team won the FAI Junior Cup was 1974 when St Michael's from Tipperary won it. Between 1973/74 they won FAI, Munster Junior, Cork AUL and AOH Cup. Great time in club's history.

    I'll guarantee you here and now North End will win no FAI.When your in hat for last 64 it shouldn't matter who you draw if you have ambitions of winning it outright.And I don't believe that boro stalwarts believe they can win.They watch them week in week out and the word is they will never win it without a good defence and 2 strong midfielder.Its the people outside the club who build them up as potential winners every single year.I do agree a bit of luck in draw is handy but my point is if your drawn at home to anyone left you should be beating them if as people say.But how many years is this being said?And what happens.Boom out.Has always been like that as they've never won it.And Ryan won't win it for them either.They brought in Dermot Finnan to try wrestle it.no joy.There's was one man I believe may have got them there but I dunno if they ever pursued it or he declined.

    Confusing."Last time a Cork AUL team won it was St Michaels from Tipperary.
    Bit odd no?

    Boro are a good side there is no denying that they have a good record locally but the fai seems to be a step too fair for them, missing glories chances in the big games are hurting them, Shane Clarke and Aaron nunan locally are very good players but both records in big games are very poor. Is the league a realistic target for them?.

    Can understand confusion faceoff!
    Last team playing in Cork AUL that won the Cup was St Michael's in 1974. Prior to playing in Cork the club played in Limerick District League and after the formation of the TSDL left Cork in 80s to return to Tipperary. It's an unusual one as we're obviously not from Cork but played for many years in Cork AUL. On leaving Cork the club presented the AUL with a Cup which was named the St Michael's Cup and is still played for today. Hope it makes sense as long time ago.

    Totally get what you're saying. For example, Tralee Dynamos are a founding member of the Desmond League.

    You wouldn't happen to know the last actual Cork side?

    Edit: By the way, that's a seriously interesting tidbit thanks very much.

    Shearer I think the record shows Rockville FC 1944/45 as last Cork winners but you can easily check full list of winners and double check.

    Been at the sherry faceoff? Good side North End, have as much of a chance as any of the big four or five clubs left in it. Nobody will want Pike or St Michaels, Usher are newcomers to this table for most of the country but have proven how good they are. North End right up there too. Boro won't win it because for me, the players they have don't love the club. They love what the club can do for them.

    In fairness they are not the only club, almost every club are like that now from top to bottom in the premier, but looked to be a realistic target for the boro, I wonder will the management stay?

    Thanks for that Saint, yeah I know of the list its just that the county isn't listed beside it so you could be tracking it down forever. I will try my utmost to compile a list by county over Christmas.

    North End would be strengthened a lot this year by the return of Gary Delaney and Robin Dempsey from Waterford. Gary Delaney, in particular, is an exceptional player for that level. Unfortunately, all their interesting Cup matches have been away so I haven't seen them yet this year. Bit unlucky to get another away draw in the FAI Junior but hopefully they can progress. Well done to Moyne also to keep the Wexford flag flying in the FAI Junior but they've also been drawn away.
