city mayors square up before RIVALS GO HEAD TO HEAD

THE mayors of Dublin and Cork squared up to each other ahead of the big match.

There is only one capital says Dublin's Lord Mayor – but Cork's representative believes the rebels have what it takes.

The old rivals will clash tomorrow, but the first citizens of both cities have already come out fighting.

The two face each other in Croke Park for the second week in a row – this time in the Hurling Championship semi-final.

Lord Mayor of Cork Catherine Clancy and her Dublin counterpart Oisín Quinn are both confident that their hurlers will march on to September's All- Ireland final.

Dublin have not beaten Cork in the Hurling Championship since 1927 and Ms Clancy believes the heartache will go on for Dublin.

"I have every confidence in the Cork team for the match," she told the Herald.

"I am sure that the experience in the team will win out on the day."
