Meanwhile, Cork currently lead Meath by one point in the All-Ireland intermediate final. The game is into it’s final five minutes of ordinary time.

An extract from Emma Duffy’s interview with Anna Farrell:

“Stop,” their father Martin shouts. ”You can’t go anywhere. There’s two bulls out on the road!”

And so, there’s another job to be done first. Off they went, no complaints.

“They had to hunt the bulls before they could go out,” their mother Helen laughed on The Marty Squad later that day, when the camogie was done and dusted.

“At least it took their minds off the match, so they were grand.”

The distraction back home in Thomastown did them the world of good after all. Anna and Meighan struck up the midfield partnership and won that battle, while Shelly rattled the net for her side’s crucial goal as they ran out four point winners.”

Read the full piece here:

‘Our household is manic on the best of days, but on All-Ireland day it’s a complete joke!’

Meath have levelled proceedings in the intermediate final following a short-range free. We’re in the last minute of injury time.

The intermediate final ends in a draw, although Meath hit the last shot over the bar. The whistle had been blown though, so it doesn’t count.

There’s some discussion in the RTÉ studio about how that last play in the intermediate final transpired.

The referee blew the final whistle before Meath took the winning shot, rather than when the ball landed from the puckout beforehand.

The added time was up, but the question is about the timing of the referee’s decision to blow the final whistle.

What do you think?

Cork boss Paudie Murray tells RTÉ that Gemma will NOT start today. We’ll see how things develop in the coming minutes.

Oh, there’s Gemma O’Connor standing alongside her Cork teammates as President Michael D Higgins meets the players under the rainfall.

Looks like she’s going to start after all.

The handshakes come off without any repeat of last year’s little incident.

And we are underway in Croker.

Orla Cotter slots over her first free of the day to put them 0-02 0-00 up.

24Mins

We suspected that it would be a low-scoring affair, and that has proven to be the case with just seven points on the board after 24 minutes.

25Mins

We’re going through a bit of a dry spell score-wise in the All-Ireland senior final. 9 minutes since the last score.

31Mins

One minute of additional time to be played.
