Cork and Clare are facing off in the Munster hurling final. With Semple Stadium in Thurles packed out for what is one of the stand-out days on the Irish sporting calendar, the atmosphere is electric and is spilling over to the field of play.
The Rebels are bidding for their first provincial title since 2014, as hype continues to build around Kieran Kingston’s young side.
Cork got off to the best start, as Alan Cadogan rifled into the net to give the Rebels a lead over the Banner.
Luke Meade won an Anthony Nash puckout, before letting it into space in front of the Douglas flyer.
Turning his man, Cadogan turned for goal, and there was only one thing in his mind as he raised a green flag in front of the Cork fans in the town end.
What a strike!
