Paudie Kissane says there is no danger of Cork taking Clare for granted in Cusack Park on Sunday.
The experienced wing back told the Corkman: "I know from playing with Munster alongside the likes of Dave Tubridy and Gary Brennan over the last few years that they have some outstanding footballers.
"We won't be underestimating them, that's for sure, and if we are any bit below form at all, we could be in for a right battle."
The Clyda Rovers clubman isn't complaining that the media aren't talking up Cork as much as they were in recent years.
"It's just the way the media works, we were being built up at the team that would take all the beating after winning the league over the past few seasons, and now all of a sudden the talk is that Cork have gone back a bit.
"We got one or two disappointing results in the league, and we finished the campaign with a poor performance against Mayo, but we are satisfied we are in good shape, even if a lot of people are saying we are team in transition."
