    It is a known result that for a minimum cost spanning tree (mcst) game a Core allocation can be deduced directly from a mcst in the underlying network. To determine this Core allocation one only needs to determine a mcst in the network and it is not necessary to calculate the coalition values of the corresponding mcst game. In this paper we will deduce other Core allocations directly from the network, without determining the corresponding mcst game itself: we use an idea of Bird (cf. [4]) to present two procedures that determine a part of the Core (called the Irreducible Core) from the network.
