The last few weeks have flown by and the All-Ireland Semi-Final against Cork is now upon us. Our last game showed up a number of areas for improvement and we have worked very hard since the Leinster Final to get ready for Sunday. Training is going well and everybody is fit and looking forward to the game.
Cork have had an impressive year so far under new management. They had a good league and contested the League Final against Kilkenny. They were then very unlucky to lose to eventual champions Tipperary in the Munster Championship. They have since enjoyed several morale-boosting victories in the Qualifiers and will come into the game on Sunday with plenty of confidence.
This will be by far the toughest test we have faced so far this season and another huge team performance is required to meet the challenge.We will have to hurl with a greater intensity and work harder than we have in any game so far to get the win. We have improved with every outing this year and we know we are capable of a big performance if the attitude is right. It will be a huge battle and it's all about getting the win and making it through to the last game of the season.
