Former Ballyhale Shamrocks All-Ireland Medal Club winner Kevin Fennelly says Ballyhale Shamrocks got a wake up call in last Sunday’s Senior Semi-Final victory over Erins Own Castlecomer.
Speaking to KCLR ahead of next Sunday’s County Final, Kevin says there’s no excuses next Sunday.
“One would have to feel sorry for Comer. They’ve been nearly getting there on a few occasions and it would have been massive for them to get there like.
“The Bridge (Bennettsbridge) were probably more disappointed in a sense, but look if the Bridge beat the Shamrocks in the Final it’s all the better for the Bridge like.
“It’s terrible to a team that get beat by a point in a Semi-Final or a Final, I am not a great loser myself, it’s a wake-up call and there is no excuse for them if they don’t beat Bennettsbridge now, they can’t have any excuses because Sunday was their wake-up call and they got away it it,” he said.
On Sunday Kevin will be looking to plot a way for Gowran to get past O’Moore’s of Laois in the Leinster Intermediate Camogie Championship.
Fennelly says their opponents will be battle hardened.
“It will be tough going up to Laois trying to win because they have two games under their belt and they are ready for it.
“We had a match to look forward to last Sunday and I didn’t look past it, and I was just glad to get over Clara in the end like and that’s were we are at,” he concluded.
