    Fair play Cork, never looked like losing, Clare too error prone and not sharp enough. Will need to improve a fair bit for Tipp.

    Possible both semi's will be split as the GAA chase the money, both have potential to sell out on their own

    Cork now have the wait of a month before their next match. Almost the same time Galway have between their Leinster final and AI semi

      There'll be great fun at the Dunkettle Roundabout.
      Some of the stress has been relieved from Dunkettle, they haven't gone with a double header.
      (If the roadworks in Killeagh are not resolved, that will be a nightmare for the Sunday fixture)

      Both hurling games in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

      Clare V Tipp at 3pm on Sat 22nd July
      Wex V Water at 4pm the following day.

      May be a good idea to split the crowd due to it being the first games in the new stadium and there may (will) be teething problems.
      The double header would of been great for fans and neutrals ..... but alas no .

      There was a rumour of the cork footballers making it a double header! but they are provisionally down to play Mayo in Limerick on the 22nd. I can't see Mayo agreeing to a non neutral venue, but Frank has pulled strokes in the past......

        Some wait. Galway have probably had an easier run thus far though in terms of preparation for their semi. Their toughest game being Wexford who didn't really threaten on the day. Cork have probably come up against tougher competition in the run up.

          They'll get a round or two of the County Championship played off, maybe.

            They must hard up on funds in Clare if they need to nick a bag of sliotars..

              Clare if anything put too much into countering the Cork puck out. Death by analysis. They focused on shutting out Lehane by
              flooding the half back line. Cork went short and got seven direct scores from it. Saying that Nash's distribution is on the money,
              one pass in the first half was almost into Alan Cadogans pocket. Deadly.

                You know the Cork bandwagon is back when those stupid Confederate flags are being flown. Seriously, not cool lads. Give them up.

                  We need to talk about Frank.

                    That's Freemount on the hit list.

                        Looks like the Freemount questions were just ignored at the end of last nights meeting. They were referred to by Ger Lane but then cast away. Nothing new from the County Board.

                            Meade is a doubt. Rumours that he broke his thumb last Sunday. The game is live in tg4 tonight.

                              Limerick very impressive last night they'll be hard beaten in the final.

                                Another brilliant win for Cork tonight in the U21s semi final. It finished 2-17 to 1-19. We beat Waterford by 1 point scoring a penalty with seconds left. A tight game like that, I don't think we'd have won that last year, but confidence was flowing and they had no intention of stopping the momentum that's with Cork hurling at the moment.

If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try.
