For the last time this year, Croke Park was awash with noise, colour and energy as fans from Armagh, Waterford, Antrim, Louth, Cork and Kerry filled the grounds for what would be the last games in the All-Ireland Finals.
The excited crowd who had travelled from all over Ireland were not disappointed as they enjoyed three fantastic games; the intermediate final between Armagh and Waterford, which saw Armagh triumph 1-12 to 1-05, the junior final between Antrim and Louth that saw Antrim win comfortably 3-09 to 0-07, before the senior final was play between Cork and Kerry.
An exciting final, Cork’s dominance in Ladies GAA Football was clear as they dismissed Kerry to take their seventh win in eight years, easily beating their opponents with a final score of 0-16 to 0-07.
A phenomenal achievement, eleven of the starting team in yesterday’s final have been involved in all seven All-Ireland victories with a twelfth coming off the bench during yesterday’s match. In fact of the dozen who have been present for all seven titles, only three are in their 30s and Cork had never won an All-Ireland prior to that win eight years ago.
Truly untouchable right now, who knows what the future holds.
