The full-forward could even have had a goal only for Anthony Nash to save his penalty.Cork revived themselves coming up to half-time, Shane Kingston with a smartly-taken goal from Luke Meade’s pass before adding two points, and a 1-11 to 1-7 deficit at the interval was not insurmountable. Goulmouth action at Páirc Uí Rinn. Source: Donall Farmer/INPHOWithin six minutes of the restart, though, Dublin had reasserted themselves, Burke setting up Eoghan Conroy for a goal, and Burke, O’Dwyer, Chris Bennett and Eamon Dillon all added further points.Not even the sending off of Chris Crummey – who also saw red when the counties met in the championship last summer – could destabilise Dublin, as a misfiring Cork never looked like mounting a late fightback.Scorers for Dublin: Domhnall Burke 0-8 (0-4 frees, 0-1 65), Eoghan Conroy 1-2, Ryan O’Dwyer 1-1, Rian McBride 0-2 each, Chris Crummey, Eamon Dillon, Chris Bennett, Caolán Conway, Cian O’Sullivan, Fiontán Mac Gib 0-1 each.Scorers for Cork: Patrick Horgan 0-7 (0-5 frees, 0-1 65), Shane Kingston 1-2, Luke Meade 0-2, Mark Coleman (0-1 free), Alan Cadogan, Conor Lehane 0-1 each.Dublin16.
