Rooney was speaking to Sporting Limerick before his side’s final training session before the game at the University of Limerick and believes that while Cork are heavy favorites, his side can cause an upset on the day.

“We are delighted to be in the semi-final but that’s not good enough. We want to get to the final and we want to win it. Cork are without doubt favorites for the game which has its own pressure.

There is no pressure on us. There is nobody expecting us to win anything outside of these group of players. Its 90 minutes, its a cup game and anything can happen on the day.”

Rooney also speaks about last weekend’s crazy 4-5 victory over Bohemians, the development of the both the 17s and senior players this season and much more. To watch the whole video click on the link below.
