But there was more to this win than just them, with the likes of Declan Dalton and David Griffin also outstanding. Dalton must have run Mark Coleman close for the man-of-the-match award.
Dalton opened the scoring for Cork with a magnificent long-range free, with Darragh Woods equalising at the other end. With four minutes gone Tipp were awarded a penalty, when Griffin, very harshly, was adjudged to have fouled Jake Morris. But Woods effort was superbly saved by Ger Collins, diving low to his right to deny him.
Cork took a real grip on the game, with 14 minutes gone, when O’Mahony played a superb ball to O’Flynn and he coolly slotted home.
