Cork secured their 24th Gala All Ireland senior title today in Croke Park with a dogged performance overcoming Ann Downey’s Kilkenny on a scoreline of 0-15 to 0-7. Cork were in front by three points at the break, giving the Black and Amber a real chance. But, Cork led by the outstanding Aoife Murray proved to be unbeatable. Several times the Cork custodian denied Kilkenny time and time again. And with Cathriona Foley ultra dependable at full back, Kilkenny couldn’t get the scores that mattered. Rachel Moloney top scored for the Rebels with seven points.


Cork came into this tie as hot favourites – never an easy tag to carry. However, despite a searching examination in the opening 30 minutes during which Kilkenny’s Ann Dalton and Aoife Neary were to the fore, the Rebels gradually got on top. Mary O’Connor was solid at centre back and with Gemma O’Connor and Rachel Moloney chalking up the points Cork kept the Cats to just two scores in the second half. Kilkenny worked very hard as a defensive unit, but up front they needed a little bit more fireepower. Cork now lie second placed behind Dublin in the pecking order.


Joachim Kelly’s Offaly are bringing the New Ireland Cup to the midlands following their 3-14 to 2-8 victory of first time appearing Waterford. A comprehensive performance from the Faithful County saw them lead at the interval 1-11 to 0-4 and when Siobhan Flannery and Arlene Watkins netted on 46 and 49 minutes the game was up for the Deise.

Offaly were awesome throughout and consequently the trophy is now residing in Offaly for the very first time.

Credit to Waterford who never relented and a much improved second half saw them shoot goals from Patricia Jackman and Aine Lyng. Just like Offaly 12 months ago, there is plenty to suggest the Deise girls will be back again.
