Football has always been seen as the weaker of the two sports in Cork. The game is strongest in the west of the county and in Cork city. Success, especially at the senior level, has been much more sporadic than with hurling. The biggest hindrance to success has been the presence of next-door neighbors Kerry. Cork has been the second strongest county in Munster since the 1940s and often one of the best in the country.
