Cork v Shannon Blues
Cork relied on an injury time penalty last week to reach this final, and the Rebel men made it interesting once again as they scored a last minute goal to claim this thrilling decider by a single point. It was the club’s first win in this competition in twelve years, which will make the refreshments tonight in Cambridge taste all the sweeter.
Cork made it all the

Cork 3-22 Connemara Gaels 5-8 (AET)
The Gaels seemed to have the game in the bag, but Cork
pulled off a second half comeback to force extra time. The rebels then had more in reserve for the
additional 20 minutes and in the end came out comfortable victors. Cathail Arnold was the center of all things
good for the Corkmen, and when the Down man had the ball in his hands it was

Shannon Blues v Galway 1:45
First up are Galway and the Shannon Blues. Galway find themselves one game away from
repeating last year’s final appearance.
The westerners field a balanced side and play a fluid style, moving the
ball well when in possession. There are
plenty of finishers in the forward line.
Home based stalwart Kevin Cummins can be relied on to come up

Cork 1-13 Aidan McAnespies 0-11
Cork just about held on to the win a game in which the
second half produced an exciting 30 minutes following a pedestrian enough
opening half. With McAnespies digging
deep to field a team, old warhorses Paddy McCusker and Dermot Gormley started,
one expected a fairly straightforward win for the rebels. It was far from it as there was never more
than a score

In the curtain raiser for this last weekend of July, Cork met the Connemara Gaels on the back pitch at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton. Cork were understaffed to start this Junior B match, and their 11 men did very well to keep it close for the opening 15 minutes. But as the match progressed, the Westerners used their numerical advantage to full effect around the middle of the park. Raudhri
