Cork boss Matthew Twomey said he was “extremely proud” of his players for the spirit they displayed against Kilkenny in yesterday’s All-Ireland senior camogie final.

The Rebels went down in a one-point defeat to their Leinster counterparts at Croke Park, where a dripping decider played out but was no consolation to Twomey and his players after the final whistle.

“It is no consolation, we told that last year and we were told that and we are here again,” Twomey is quoted saying by “We just know what we have to do now get a flipping win. But the players are immense, I’m so proud of them I’m extremely proud to be their manager.

“All you want off a team is to give it their all and they have done that numerous times over the years. In my reign they have done it every game given their all.

“We lost a few players during the years we have a panel and I know Galway and Kilkenny are the same they lost players but just talking about Cork they are huge losses. We had a lot of inexperienced players out there as well who will learn massively from this.”
