'Cork People Truly Are The Best' - O'Connor

Cork people truly are the best.

That's the gospel according to Cork camogie captain Amy O'Connor who lifted the O'Duffy Cup in Croke Park and who are we to disagree?

The St. Vincent's star scored a staggering 3-7 in the humiliation of Waterford in the All-Ireland Senior final. The Rebels tore the Deise asunder from the get-go in a scintilating 5-11 to 0-9 victory with O'Connor scoring three goals in two minutes - surely a record in any major sporting final.

The win is all the sweeter with Cork having lost the last two finals in 2021 and 2022 and having lost to Waterford in the 2023 Munster championship on home soil on the same day Cork hurlers obliterated Waterford in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

It's important to point out that Cork have now won 29 senior camogie titles, three ahead of Dublin, putting us top of the role of honour. One more camogie victory will put senior camogie and senior hurling on the same number of titles.
