Three-in-row Munster Champions, the Cork U21s are now seeking to go one step further and win the
coveted All-Ireland title, which would be a first for the county at this level since 2009. In 2010, these two side clashed in an epic Minor Semi-Final at Croke
Park, which saw Cork come back from a nine-point deficit to snatch a late win with a free from the boot of Brian Hurley.
Support is vital for the team on Saturday, and we appeal to all Cork fans to make the trip to Limerick to roar on the Rebels!
