Cork’s last win was in the inaugural competition in 2006 and since then they have featured in more than their fair share of finals. So considering those factors it’s more a case of relief than lucky to see the cup heading south.
It shows the strength of camogie in Cork at present and hopefully for many years to come. The Rebel county is probably the only one that could produce two teams to these high standards over this time and going forward is the only one likely of doing so for some time.
But Cork started to settle with Jennifer Barry leading by example at centre-back and Harrington solid out behind her.
A magnificent catch by Siobhan Hutchinson in defence started the move and she put Finola Neville on her way.
“The goal was a big score and in fairness, Caitriona never lets us down. It’s great to win after the last two years and we will enjoy the celebrations now,” concluded Brian.
