Cork advanced to a familiar Munster final meeting with Kerry after a 12-point triumph over Clare at Páirc Uí Rinn.

It was 0-10 to 0-4 at the break with Cork dominant but Clare did cause Brian Cuthbert's men momentary concern when Cathal O'Connor found the net.

The Rebels were quick to reassert and a penalty from veteran Donncha O'Connor and substitute John Hayes raised the white flag on a number of occasions along with Paul Kerrigan and Fintan Gould who impressed.

Up next for Clare is the second round of the qualifiers.
