Sunday August 13
Electric Ireland MHC Semi-Final
Dublin v Cork, Croke Park, 1.30pm
Having collected Munster titles at Under 17, minor, and senior level, Cork return to the Croke Park stage with significant hope attach.
An All Ireland Under 17 triumph has already been posted, now they want to deliver in the minor grade.
So impressive down south Cork bring a talented team to GAA headquarters.
Cork proved to be far too strong for Clare in the Munster decider as the promising Evan Sheehan blasted a couple of goals.
Robert Downey and lively substitute Barry Murphy also rattled the Clare net, while the form of Ger Collins, Sean O'Leary Hayes, and Daire Connery supplies further encouragement.
Following a Leinster Final defeat to Kilkenny, who have subsequently been beaten by Galway, Dublin cruised to an emphatic win over Antrim.
Sean Currie produced a man of the match display registering a staggering 2-13 haul.
Mark Grogan, Emmet Allen, and Ben Coffey were others to impress for Dublin.
Last weekend Cork overcame Dublin in a well contested Under 17 Final at GAA headquarters. Who will advance to face Galway in the minor showpiece next month?
CORK: Ger Collins; Conor O'Callaghan, Sean O'Leary, Eoin Roche; Aaron Walsh Barry, James Keating, Ger Millerick; Daire Connery, Diarmuid Linehan; Craig Hanifin, Liam O Shea, Brian Roche; Evan Sheehan, Robert Downey, Brian Turnbull.
