Galway are the 2021 All-Ireland Senior Camogie champions.

They've beaten Cork 1-15 to 1-12 at Croke Park to regain the O'Duffy Cup.

The sides came into the game having not met in the decider since 2015 and although Galway weres contesting their third decider in three years Cork were the favourites to edge this.

Cathal Murray's side didn't seem to pass any heed on the pre-match narrative and stormed into an early lead, scoring four early points without reply from the Rebels.

Cork weren't rattled though by the early Galway wave and once they registered their first score in the 5th minute they settled.

The rest of the half was pretty end to end although quite low-scoring with Galway leading 9-8 at the break.

Five minutes into the second half, Cork's captain Linda Collins, who was the hero for them in their semi-final win over Kilkenny, came on for Ciara O'Sullivan.

And it looked like she was to be of huge influence once again.

In the 48th minute, she won the ball on the wing out under the Cusack Stand and handpassed to Katriona Mackey who fired it high into the net.

Cork now led 1-11 to 0-11.

Galway though didn't panic and after both sides sent points through the posts they got their breakthrough moment.

In the 57th minute, Ailish O'Reilly and Siobhan McGrath combined brilliantly to find the back of the net.

Running on goal O'Reilly laid a handpass for McGrath who dinked the Cork keeper to send the ball into the back of the net and put Galway back in the driving seat with three minutes to go.

That made it 1-13 to 1-11 before Cork responded with a point but Galway fired home another two to see them win by three and claim their second title in three years.
