Armagh 1-6 1-7 Cork
Cork beat Armagh in the All-Ireland ladies final

Armagh suffered an agonising one-point defeat to champions Cork in Sunday's All-Ireland ladies football final.

The Ulster county had held a five-point lead thanks to Mairead Tennyson's goal and points from Mags McAlinden, Caroline O'Hanlon and Aileen Matthews.

Another McAlinden score saw Armagh lead 1-4 to 0-3 at half-time but they managed just two points in the second period through O'Hanlon and Tennyson.

Cork scored four points after the break plus a goal from Nollaig Cleary.

"Everything went well in the first half and we were happy to go in four points up," said Armagh captain Bronagh O'Donnell.

"We knew if we won the second half it would be enough, but fair play to Cork because they came back at us.

"They closed up shop at the back and we could not convert our possession into scores.

"Everyone played their hearts out and you cannot ask for much more than that."
