Kerry 0-20

Cork 1-12

Kerry booked their place in the League semi-finals this afternoon for the first time since 2012. Cork, on the other hand, were relegated to Division Two after a five-point loss and Monaghan's win over Donegal.

A game which featured a red card, a black card and a Colm O'Neill penalty, Kerry looked comfortable for large swathes of the game.

The Kingdom will face Roscommon next week in the semi-final, while tougher challenges remain. Dublin maintained their 100% record  with a win over the Rossies this afternoon but the Connacht side produced a strong second half showing to put some respectability on the scoreline.
