Cork take on Kilkenny this Sunday in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Championship Final in Croke Park. The Final throws-in at 4.15pm with the Rebels looking to retain their All-Ireland title shich they claimed in dramatic fashion last September against the Cats. We caught up with Cork captain Aoife Murray ahead of the much anticipated decider.

Q. So, Aoife, coming into your match against Cork, how have preparations been going?
"They've been going as well as you would hope that they could go. Obviously we missed out on a few training sessions. We went straight into Club Championships after the Semi-Final. It's obviously great to get back your Club but at the same time we've missed out on a few training sessions so we're possibly packing a small bit in but nevertheless it is what it is and we're in as good place as we possibly can be."
Q. Has your mindset changed at all coming into what promises to be a thrilling encounter against a strong Kilkenny side?
"No, I think your mindset develops and changes over time. I suppose at the end of the day the goal is still the same. That's to give 100% effort and workrate. We know that if we don't give maximum workrate that we won't be winning anything."
Q. Throughout the season and over the last number of years there has been several key battles between yourselves and Kilkenny. You’re tied at one win apiece for the season. How does your team plan on managing all the emotions that come along with that?
"I think it's important not to shy away from the emotions or shy away from nerves or pressure. I think we're extremely fortunate to be experiencing those feelings. With a final, emotions are always going to be there and as long as you can channel it into a positive energy that day then we'll have a chance. But certainly not to shy away from it – to embrace it and enjoy it."
