Colm O’Neill is keeping his fingers crossed for a Cork performance against Kerry in Saturday’s Munster SFC decider.

The 2010 All-Ireland winner – who hung up his inter-county boots last year – liked what he saw from his ex-team-mates in their semi-final trouncing of Limerick and believes they could use the disappointment of last year’s final defeat as a motivating factor.

“I was actually at the Limerick match, obviously, Limerick didn’t perform as well as they’d have liked, but I was impressed by how clinical Cork were, they got the job done efficiently, there was no messing around,” he said to

“It’s hard to know where they are at. I know Kerry weren’t as convincing against Clare. I’m not sure where they’re at either so it’s going to be interesting.

“I’m sure Ronan and the lads have done a lot of work and video analysis and maybe try to learn a few things from last year. It’s the majority of the same players so I’m sure that last year’s Munster final will still be fresh in the memory so it’ll hopefully be the motivation that they need as well.”
