If Cork are to put the hurt of last year’s final behind them, and get across the line tomorrow, then the key area to win is midfield. Thankfully for them, they’ve a player more than capable of winning the war that will unfold there: Ashling Thompson.

To me, she’s the most important and influential player for Cork, and while she can count herself lucky to have got off on appeal for the semi-final, once she came off the bench her impact was immediate.
