Full-Time: Cork 0-16 Kerry 0-7
16.11 – Wonderful play from Cork, and Mulcahy, who sees off the challenge of three Kerry defender to put two in it. In the next wave Cork make it three and Doireann O’Sullivan gets her first score of the game.
Kerry are loose in possession, Cork are clinical…
16.30 – Six points in the difference, and roughly five minutes to the half-time break, while Kerry’s Patrice Dennehy has come on for Deirdre Corridan.
17.01 – A free from Murphy falls short and one of the Kerry defenders knocks it out of play. Murphy will take the 45, beginning a passage of play that almost results in a goal for Doireann O’Sullivan, but Edel Murphy is equal to it and Kerry get out of trouble.
17.17 – After a Kerry effort drifts wide, Doireann O’Sullivan shows the neighbours how it should be done. We’re three and a half minutes from the end.
17.23 – That’s full-time and Cork are well deserving of their win, their seventh All-Ireland in eight seasons. It was Kerry’s first defeat in an All-Ireland final.
Rebelettes’ captain Rena Buckley climbs the steps to collect the trophy.
A phenomenal performance from the Leesiders, and that’s it from Croke Park. Thanks for keeping up…
