They went long for the first time and it was three Rebels attacking one Dublin player. Cork scored their third goal from here when the excellent Brian Hartnett set up Colm O’Callaghan with a great run through the middle of the Dublin defence. The energy and belief surged through the team and crowd in unison.
Cork substitutes again made an impact with Jack Murphy scoring an excellent point assisted by Cathal O’Mahony, which followed another excellent Mark Cronin free. The gap was out to two points again.
Every player contributed with Cork having leaders all over the field. Well done to players and management. As the records show, All-Irelands are hard to win and that was most certainly a sweet one.
