The excitement and anticipation is gathering much steam as we head into the final few matches in the Senior Football Championship, and ahead of their big clash with Dublin, Cork have named their team.
Following their hard-fought victory over Galway in the fourth round of the qualifiers, Cork will feel slightly more confident of getting the win this Sunday.
Of course, they will know they are the underdogs this weekend as they head to Croke Park to face Dublin, who are one of the favourites, alongside Mayo to get their hands on the Sam Maguire.
In a story published in the Irish Independent, the Rebels starting XV was revealed as follows:
Cork – A Quirke; E Cadogan, M Shields, T Clancy; D Cahalane, G Canty, J Loughrey; A O’Connor, P O’Neill; M Collins, A Walsh, J O’Rourke; D Goulding, C Sheehan, B Hurley
Conor Counihan has made no changes from the side that started the game against Galway, in an attempt, no doubt, to gather some stability and familiarity.
It would be a big shock to see Dublin falter here in the last-eight, however considering that we’ve already had a few shocks so far this year, it is still a possibility. Nonetheless, if one thing is sure, it’s set to be an enthralling encounter.
Presently, the Munster men are 11/1 to go all the way and win the All-Ireland.
