Monaghan were playing with the aid of a strong breeze in the first half and had built up a 6 point lead. However Cork was always threatening and would have the breeze advantage in the second half. They started the second half with great gusto and began taking points from long range and acute angles whittling the lead to two points. It was difficult to say whether the home side could hold off the challenge but in the final 5 minutes they got a new burst of energy and once again took control in vital areas. They went on to a three point victory - 1 - 13 to 2 - 7.
