The Rebels made it to a second successive Munster Final after proving too strong for Clare in Thurles, but Barry-Murphy says that the All-Ireland defeat to the same opposition still lingers.

“This doesn’t make up for the All-Ireland Final, nothing does,” he said.

The general consensus is that this Cork team has improved from the team that lost provincial and All-Ireland finals last year, but the manager is keen to point out that his team have a long way to go to prove themselves.

“I was thrilled for the players,” he told reporters.

“The replay against Waterford was a great help, but this team has won nothing yet,” he added.

The final will take place on home soil for the Rebels and Barry-Murphy is eagerly looking forward to the game.

“We were beaten fairly and squarely last year.”

“The Munster Final is always special.”
