The Kerry golden era of minor dominance is starting to bear fruit at U21 level as the Kingdom totally outclassed Cork, 2-16 to 0-6, in last night's Munster U21 final at Páirc Uí Rinn.

Jack O'Connor's side produced an outstanding display to see off Cork by a whopping 16 points and book an All-Ireland semi-final date with the winners of this Saturday's Connacht decider between Galway and Sligo.

Goals in either half came from Matthew O'Sullivan and Conor Geaney while Sean O'Shea and Killian Spillane, with 0-6 and 0-5 respectively, marked themselves out as star-turns.


Impressive Kerry were 1-6 to 0-3 to good at the break after they started as they meant to continue with the opening four points inside the opening seven minutes.

Cork rallied with hit three on the bounce but that was as close as the home side and reigning champions got to their opponents.

Kerry pulled clear before the break, O'Sullivan blasting to the net in the 20th minute.

Kerry improved in the second period and their second goal came in the 54th minute when Geaney came carved through before firing to the net.

Both Ulster U21FC semi-finals - Cavan v Donegal and Armagh v Derry were postponed due to waterlogged pitches.
