“Work-rate is a non-negotiable” | Kilmallock’s Graeme Mulcahy praises side’s energy and performance against Adare

Mulcahy was in top form for the Balbec in their comfortable victory on Thursday evening.

Kilmallock responded to their narrow defeat against Na Piarsaigh in relentless fashion as they put Adare to the sword in a 3-26 to 0-17 victory in the third round of the SHC.

Three first half goals from the reigning champions put the tie to bed early on as they held an impressive seventeen point lead heading into the interval. The side comfortably saw out the second half as they showed the response of champions after their round two defeat.

Speaking afterwards, Graeme Mulcahy praised his side’s energy from the start, stating that high work-rate is a necessity for the side.

“After our last outing against Na Piarsaigh I think it was important for us to come out here and get a result. We put huge focus on tonight we weren’t looking past to the next day and we got a performance there certainly in the first half.

“We’ve spoken about that (work-rate) as a group too like it’s controllable for ourselves, work-rate is a non-negotiable really.”

Mulcahy also touched upon the week that Kilmallock as a town had endured ahead of the game and how they used it to motivate themselves in the game.

29-year-old Dylan McCarthy from Kilmallock unfortunately lost his life after an attack last week and Mulcahy dedicated the win to McCarthy and the people of Kilmallock,

“I think that with the week that we’ve had in Kilmallock, last week it was a very tough week for the town and we spoke about that beforehand and just putting in performance to kind of mark the week that people have put down.”
