Gerry Adams was full of praise for the Cork hurlers and their kitman for handing out jerseys to young Antrim supporters at last Saturday's All-Ireland SHC preliminary quarter-final at Corrigan Park.

Taking to twitter, the former Sinn Fein leader said: "Well done to Cork and especially to the Kit Man who opened a bag of junior gansais and gave them to young Gaels who came to watch the game today,"

"A great gesture. An flathuil. Míle buiochas."

The Rebels came from behind to win by 3-27 to 2-19 and set up an All-Ireland SHC quarter-final against Galway this coming weekend.
