The cats came out on top after a mammoth battle by 2-37 to 2-29.
Brian told scoreline.ie after the game that all the lads put a huge effort into the game.
“You know there was 34 on our panel, eight of the players beyond the 26 couldn’t tog out today,” said Brian.
“Those eight players have contributed massively as well to the whole preparation for the game and the making of that 26 is up for grabs again and they’re great, there’s a great spirit there, a great honesty there and there’s talent there as well” he added.
