Cork senior hurling captain Seamus Harnedy says his side are looking for consistency ahead of Sunday’s All-Ireland quarter final with Kilkenny at Croke Park.
Harnedy was speaking at the launch of the All-Ireland series at Mungret GAA Club yesterday and says his side were just happy to make it out of Munster.
“John (Meyler) said to us that the initial objective was to qualify out of the round robin series in Munster.
“It was a tough initial defeat to Tipperary, but the beauty of the round robin series is that you have five or six days to rectify.
“They Limerick game couldn’t have come quick enough. We are just happy to have qualified out of Munster.
“Obviously, you want to get to the final and always want to be part of that, but the objective was achieved. We are into the All-Ireland series now and all roads lead to Croker this Sunday.”
Take a look at the full interview with Seamus Harnedy below.
Brendan Maher was representing Tipperary at the launch and the Borrisoleigh man is delighted to be still in the mix after what was a nightmare 2018 personally and for the county.
“Last year, at this stage, we were looking on from the sidelines, and myself personally, my leg was in a brace and not in a good place mentally.
“You are glad to be playing and glad to be in this stage of the championship. It’s great to be in an All-Ireland quarter final and to be heading back up to Croker as well.”
Maher also talks in detail about the struggles he faced both mentally and physically on the road to recovery in the video below.
