Cork and Galway name teams for what could an epic All-Ireland Minor A final

CORK are aiming for a fourth successive All-Ireland minor A title, when they face Galway at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick on Sunday (2pm).

Galway last won the A final in 2014, when they defeated Cork.

A year later, Cork gained revenge on Galway and the Munster representatives were also victorious against the girls from the West in last year’s national final.

Remarkably, this will be the fourth time in five seasons that Cork and Galway will battle it out for the A crown.

Cork got past a talented and determined Dublin team to reach a fifth successive final while Galway were involved in a thrilling fixture against Cavan.

Cork won by 13 points but that doesn’t tell the full story as Dublin also performed well on the day. Galway, meanwhile, needed extra-time before they emerged victorious against Cavan, in what was a memorable encounter.

Cork and Galway have both released their starting 15s ahead of an eagerly-anticipated game.
