Former Graigue-Ballycallan hurler Adrian Ronan is confident they will stay Senior after returning to the top ranks of the Kilkenny Championship following their success in last years Intermediate County Final.
Speaking to KCLR after Saturday’s All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship Semi-Final defeat against Charleville, Adrian says they will bounce back from Saturday’s disappointment.
He told KCLR “This is our 50th anniversary and we are 50 years in existence and we want to be Senior and we didn’t think we would”.
“We are going to be Senior (this season) and we have to accept that the defeat (in the All Ireland Semi Final) was disappointing, it is hurting and it will hurt us of course. We are going to have to try and stay Senior and that is goal for 2019 for this group of players”.
Speaking about the All Ireland Semi Final defeat he said “we have to accept defeat and that’s it, but they (the team) have given us tremendous tremendous hours and days out in the last six months so we have to stay senior and that’s the goal for 2019 and we will stay Senior”.
Graigue Ballycallan face Dicksboro in the first game of the league after the draw was made last night.
