CORK will play Gal­way in the All-Ire­land Mi­nor A Camo­gie Fi­nal af­ter the Rebels saw off a dogged Clare by 1-11 to 0-9 in Ballya­gran, and Gal­way ac­counted for Tip­per­ary in a cracker by 4-9 to 1-10 in Banagher.

Mairéad Dil­lon struck for an in­cred­i­ble four goals and point, and Gal­way needed such a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion as Tip­per­ary threw ev­ery­thing at them.

In Ballya­gran, Aoife Power got Clare off to a good start but points from Aoife Hur­ley, Cliona Healy and Saoirse McCarthy en­abled Cork to squeak ahead early, but it was 1-6 to 0-6 at half time, .

Linda Daly made it a two-point game but points from Healy and Fiona Keating put clear day­light be­tween the sides for the first time with eight minute re­main­ing. Di­nan then con­verted a free and had a late penalty saved, en­sur­ing that it was Cork who would ad­vance by 1-11 to 0-9.
