Manager John Fintan Daly reckons Knocknagree's run to Croke Park can inspire Cork football again.

Knocknagree overcame Donegal's Naomh Colmcille on Saturday to reach the All-Ireland Club JFC final.

First-half goals by James Dennehy and John F Daly Jnr were the springboard to Knocknagree securing their final tickets.

"I hope we inspire clubs in Cork because we accept defeat too easily and too often," the Knocknagree boss said."We need to play more positive football and get our skill-set right. I hope the Cork seniors take a lead out of that and go at it. We are accepting second best."

Knocknagree went ahead on six minutes as Dennehy deftly lobbed John Roulstone. Naomh Colmcille managed to stay in touch, but it was lights out when Daly tucked home after being teed up by Dennehy.

Eoghan McSweeney arched over two excellent points in the first half when Knocknagree took control.

Willie Gillespie's frees kept the scoreboard ticking for the Donegal side, but they finished with 13 men following the late dismissals of William Lynch and Michael Lynch.
