“It’s high time that we stepped up to the plate and did what they are doing because to go down to Kerry and Cork and beat them is fantastic.

We have Conor O’Sullivan and Michael Quinlivan from the minors last year and a few of the U-21s from a few years ago that won the Munster Final – I don’t think there is any fear of Kerry in our team, it’s just about getting a bit of luck on the day and trying to get over them. It’s going to happen sometime and hopefully this could be the year we get a run in the Munster championship or All-Ireland series”, he says.

The full interview with George Hannigan appears in this week’s Nationalist.
