Kerry were crowned Munster champions on Saturday evening, with a nine-point win over reigning Munster and All-Ireland champions Cork.
The Kingdom drove home to a 2-13 to 2-4 win over Cork, with a dominant patch in the second half that Cork just did not have a response to.

In fact, Alan O’Neill’s side put in an equally impressive first half display, which saw them having the edge by two points at the break on a 0-10 to 2-2 scoreline.
Fantastic scoring by Player of the Match Louise Ní Mhuirceartaigh – who finished with 1-5 in total – drove Kerry forward as play resumed.
Despite brilliant performances from Cork’s Briege Corkery and Rena Buckley – who had each already played camogie for their county earlier that day against Offaly – it was just not enough on the day.
A goal from Megan O’Connell followed by a second for Kerry from Ní Mhuirceartaigh sealed victory for Kerry.
Cork will now go head-to-head with Meath in the qualifiers.

Meanwhile, in the Intermediate final a determined Waterford scooped their seventh (yes, SEVENTH) Munster final win in a row, with a 1-14 to 2-7 win over Clare.
