Cork 0-16 0-15 Down All-Ireland Football Final 2010 Result
Cork win the 2010 All Ireland Final. The Rebel County collected the All-Ireland title in Croker they have wanted for the last five years. They were three points down at half time but battled back to lead by three with ten minutes to play. Down came back at them but Cork held on to win their first All Ireland in nearly twenty years and collect their seventh All-Ireland title.

Cork’s Daniel Goulding has been named All-Ireland ‘Man of the Match’ by the Sunday Game panel.
Speaking to Michael Lyster at last night’s post-match banquet, the Éire Óg man said: ‘For the 35 fellas and the management today was the perfect ending. We had a lot of knocks over the last couple of years and it is great to be at the top for once.

‘It is an absolutely great feeling to come out (on top) with your good friends and fellas that you have battled with for so long.’
