Paudie praises Cork's cool composure

WHEN it mattered most, Cork had ice in their veins.

That, according to Cork manager, Paudie Murray, was the winning and the losing of it at Parnell Park last Sunday.

RATTLED

"We didn't get rattled," noted Paudie. "We stuck at it.

"We held our nerve, and when the game was there to be won, we drove on."

That's the type of belief you have in the brief-case when you are the All-Ireland champions.

nother is the quality of personnel you have. One of the Cork changes before the throw-in saw Briege Corkery come onto the first 15. A Leeside legend.

"We were looking forward to coming up here all week because we knew Dublin were going well," added Paudie.

RESULT

"Dublin gave us a good game and we are very happy that we got the result. We also started a lot of young girls.

"Six or seven of the side were under 20, so it is a very good learning curve for them."
