It has been a spectacular week for Cork hurling - provincial titles secured at minor and senior level while last night the U21 team booked their place in the Munster final after a spectacular late goal.

Declan Dalton converted a last gasp penalty to sees the Rebels past Waterford by just one point, and afterwards Cork manager John Meyler got emotional when discussing the heart shown by his side.

"I need about ten paracetamol after that I'd say," Meyler told TG4 after the match.

"That was some goal by Dalton, fair dues to him.

"It wasn't gone, I was annoyed, we had a chance. Jack O'Connor had a chance. We needed a goal.

"It's probably robbery on Waterford. We didn't play well because we hadn't been together but at the same time there's great heart."

Ireland international David Meyler, the son of the Cork manager, shared a video of the interview on Twitter, adding the message 'What makes the GAA so special!'.
