Cork have dethroned All Ireland champions KIlkenny by a score of 0-19 to 0-14 at Semple Stadium in Thurles.

The game was controversial with Kilkenny legend Henry Shefflin sent off at the end of the first half.

Kilkenny also had a disallowed goal early in the second half and it seems this mighty team, the greatest of all time by most standards. has finally run out of luck. It may also end the era of coach Brian Cody.

Cork’s Pat Horgan scored 0-11 points as Jimmy Barry Murphy’s men completely dominated the opening exchanges and went on to win easily.
