Title success for Cork

Cork retained their NFL Division One title with a hard-fought 0-21 to 2-14 win over Dublin at Croke Park.

The Dubs got off to a wonderful start with a goal after just six minutes from Tomas Quinn.

Cork fought back with points from Daniel Goulding, Patrick Kelly and Pearse O'Neill - but two Kevin McManamon scores and a Barry Cahill effort helped Dublin to a 1-10 to 0-10 lead at the break.

Bernard Brogan blasted in a second goal, and the Dubs appeared to be coasting to victory, before Cork came roaring back, with Donncha O'Connorm, Ciaran Sheehan and Daniel Goulding hitting the points which saw them complete the comeback.

In the Division Two final, Donegal held on for a narrow 2-11 to 0-16 win over Laois.
