Cork and Galway meet in the All-Ireland minor final on Sunday in the curtain-raise at GAA Headquarters. Cork will be looking for their 11th title, their last which of came in 2000. Galway will be looking for their 7th title, the last of which was back in 2007.

The Galway manager has been speaking to Tommy Devane from Galway Bay FM

Cork come into the game on the back of a first-round Munster defeat to Kerry, 3-19 to 1-09. They beat Clare then in the next round, before going on to lose to Kerry again in the Munster Final 3-14 to 2-14. They followed that up with a big win over Monaghan in the All-Ireland quarter-finals 3-19 to 2-10. That set up an All-Ireland semi-final with Mayo who again they brushed aside with ease 4-12 to 1-13. Conor Corbett scored 2-03 that day and he will be vital, as will Darragh Cashman, Michael O’Neill, and Jack Cahalane.

Galway will be looking to superstar attacker Tomo Culhane. He was excellent in the semi-final when he kicked 0-06 he certainly is a player for the future.

Previous to that the Westerners lost out in Connacht to Roscommon in the first round, before going on to beat Mayo, Leitrim, and Sligo. They faced Mayo in the Connacht Final and just lost out by a point, 1-18 to 1-17. Galway had a 2-17 to 0-15 win over Kildare in the All-Ireland quarter-finals, before going on to beat Kerry 0-14 to 0-13 in the semi-final. Galway will look to players like the aforementioned Culhane, Warren Seoige and Dylan Brady.
