Cork Gearing Up For GAA All-Ireland Minor Football Final
1st September 2019
After a stunning victory against Mayo in Croke Park, Cork are now getting ready for the highly anticipated All-Ireland Minor Football Final which is due to take place on Sunday, 1st September.
The All-Ireland Minor Semi Final between Cork and Mayo was an exciting game with an amazing performance put in by Cork Captain Conor Corbett who contributed 2-03 for Cork.
Led by coach Bobby O’Dwyer, the Cork Minor Team have had a great season so far this year. With the Cork team winning the All-Ireland U-20 football championship final in early August, it looks like a promising future for Cork football.
Cork v Galway
The All-Ireland Minor Football Final will see Cork taken on Galway in Croke Park who narrowly won their semi-final against Kerry by just one point.
It has been 9 years since Cork played in the Minor All-Ireland Final. Cork lost by just one point against Tyrone in 2010 with a final score of 1-13 to 1-12. Everyone here at Chill Insurance will be rooting for Cork with the hope that the Tom Markham Cup will return back to the Rebel County.
In terms of All-Ireland Minor wins, Cork has won the final ten times (3rd position overall). Galway have secured six wins (6th position) with the last success in 2007.
The team to face Galway is expected to be announced from Thursday 29th August 2019.
