Cork 0-10 0-16 Kerry
Cork v Kerry
Kerry eased into the All-Ireland SFC final after beating their Munster rivals Cork at Croke Park on Sunday.

Cork made a good start and led before Kerry's converted their growing dominance into points.

The Kingdom were 0-8 to 0-5 ahead at the break and with midfielder Dara O Se in inspirational form they cruised to a six-point victory.

Jack O'Connor's side will play the winners of next weekend's semi-final between Dublin and Mayo in the decider.

Cork keeper Alan Quirke made a fine save to keep out Kieran Donaghy's early shot while Kerry also had two good penalty claims turned down.

Kerry's win was revenge for the defeat by Cork in the Munster final replay.

"I am just delighted for the players - it is a great side to get to two All-Ireland finals in a row," said Kerry boss O'Connor.

"Our defence played well. We set a target of conceding just five or six points each half and thankfully it came out right in the end.

"After the Cork defeat we we had to re-jig our team a bit - Kieran Donaghy has come in and given us shape and direction.

"There is nothing like having a month down in Kerry to prepare for an All-Ireland final.

"The lads are enjoying it and I am enjoying it. There is no major pressure because we were written off five to six weeks ago."
