Old rivals Cork and Kerry will meet in next Wednesday's Munster U20FC final following their respective victories over Clare and Tipperary last night.

At SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Cork romped to a 5-18 to 0-13 win over Clare. The Rebels were out of sight by half-time when goals from captain Hugh O'Connor (two), Ed Myers and Ross Corkery helped them to an unassailable 4-11 to 0-4 lead.

Clare improved in the second half, but the hosts never lost their grip on the game and completed the rout with a fifth major from Dara Sheehy.

Leading by 0-5 to 0-4 at the break, Kerry eventually beat Tipperary by 1-15 to 1-10 at Austin Stack Park to finish top of their group.

With substitutes Cormac Dillon, Luke Crowley and Eddie Healy all making an impact, Tomás Ó Se's sude opened up a 1-12 to 0-6 lead thanks to a Tomás Kennedy goal. Another sub Daithí Hogan grabbed a late consolation goal for the visitors.
