“It feels really good to be here! It just sets us up for a positive year. It’s hard to come off a few losses I think, and it gives us more confidence going into the Championship.”

“We have been very lucky! We hadn’t a great League start at all. The matches you’d hope to be winning are home games, and we lost one and drew one. So we are actually very lucky to be here.

“We drew with Waterford as well, and got through on score difference, so we are delighted to be here. When you didn’t win the matches that you should have been winning, it’s a massive bonus!”

“It’s great to get to the semi-final! It’s brilliant to get the game in, because it’s at games really when you find out where you are at, and you discover what areas you need to improve in.  So it’s great to get here, it was a bit of touch and go there after the Wexford game, there was only two points, and we didn’t know if we were going to make it!”

“Ah it’s brilliant! It’s great to win matches the whole way up. It’s brilliant to get another chance to try and defend the title. It’s great to get matches under your belt as the league goes on, so I’m looking forward now to Sunday.”
