There were a few things on the Cork wishlist going into last night’s duel with Dublin. The first one, of course, was not to give away an early goal and to try and get to half-time with the game still in the balance. That was achieved relatively easily.

In their three previous championship matches, the Dublin supporters were able to go off and get an ice cream after 20 minutes, safe in the knowledge that it was just a mopping up exercise from then on.
