Cork football manager Peadar Healy says he's proud of how his players responded to defeat Tipperary
Cork football boss Peadar Healy expressed his pride in how his team came back in the second half of their Munster SFC semi-final, to defeat Tipperary.
Healy's side rallied from a disappointing first half display to curtail Tipperary in the second period, and ultimately take a one-point victory.
Tipperary looked to have secured the victory coming into the final minutes, when Conor Sweeney scored a vital goal. Cork's response was immediate as they charged back down the pitch to respond with a goal of their own through Luke Connolly.
Speaking to Oisin Langan of Newstalk Sport, Healy said he was proud of how his players applied themselves to earn the win:
"This was a great performance that dug out a great result today. When the pressure was on them at half-time and they went 6-1 down, they responded very well.
"Ye, the press, has given us a beating over the last couple of weeks, but I thought the players responded very well when they went 6-1 down and Tipperary got the goal.
"Show me a better goal this year than the goal Cork scored."
Cork will now progress to face either Clare or Kerry in the Munster final. The other semi-final takes place this afternoon in Ennis.
