DEANE RESCUES SLOPPY CORK; GAA - LAST NIGHT: LIMERICK CAUGHT OFF-GUARD.
All-Ireland SHC, Rd 3
CORK eased past Dublin by five points at Pairc Ui Chaoimh last night to advance through the next round of the All-Ireland qualifiers.
That's where they will meet either Galway or Waterford, but they were far from impressive.
Too often, Cork were sloppy in their play and shot some very bad wides, and only for a 43rd minute goal from Joe Deane, following a mistake by Dublin goalkeeper Gary Maguire, there could have been a huge upset.
Cork led 0-10 to 0-6 at the break having played with a strong wind, though they shot 10 wides and were sending too many long passes astray, and their fullforward line were not doing enough with their limited possession.
Dublin started the second half well, narrowing the gap to two before dazzling Deane's goal.
However, they were always playing catch-up after that, though Donal Og Cusack had to save well from Ross O'Carroll.
The free-taking of David O'Callaghan was keeping Dublin in it, but Cork managed to pull away in the end.
They will know, though, that a massive improvement is needed if they are to progress in the All-Ireland from the next round.
CORK: Deane 1-1, Naughton 0-3, Kenny, J O'Connor, B O'Connor (0-1f), Ronan 0-2 each, McCarthy, Cronin, Gardiner (0-1f), Cadogan, Horgan 0-1 each.
DUBLIN: D O'Callaghan 0-10 (0-7f), R O'Carroll 0-3, Ryan 0-2.
GOAL: Joe Deane
