Watch the jubilant scenes as Cork Ladies celebrate Div 1 final win

Cork veteran Deirdre O’Reilly lifted the Lidl National League Division 1 cup after an injury to captain Ciara O’Sullivan during the Final with Mayo at Parnell Park last night.

"I'm the oldest!", explained the centre-half-back who had never lifted a trophy in all of her years with the Rebels.

"It's a great honour, it's nice to lift the cup."

O'Sullivan was stretchered from the pitch with concussion but was well enough to attend the post-match meal.

Cork defeated previously unbeaten Mayo by a goal, 1-10 to 0-10, to take the League crown for the fourth year in a row.
