Kilkenny City Ladies Under-14 Gaelic Football Selector John Gorey says they have proven themselves against the the top teams in the country.
Kilkenny City won the Plate competition at the Kilmacud Crokes 7s to add to the Division Two Feile title they won during the Summer, and speaking to KCLR, John says they are definitely a leading club within the province.
“Your up against the cream the whole time in the country and it’s not how good we are, but it is reality of what has happened. You are getting to the Kilmacud you are invited, you accept the invitation and you are going up to take on the best. Division Two is Division Two which means we are in Division One next year.
“The record books will show that in 2017 I think probably in Leinster at the moment we are probably one of the leading clubs.”
John also says the underage success offers plenty of hope going forward.
“In the adult, there is a kick of a ball again between Thomastown and Kilkenny City but I will also say that across the county, there are teams like Erins Own of Castlecomer, they drew with us in the adult and we beat them by a kick of the ball in the Adult Final.
“Our under-age standard of football across the County at the moment in my opinion is as good a standard as there is in any county let it be Cork, Dublin, Kerry,” he concluded.
