During Tuesday’s Kilkenny GAA media event at Langton House Hotel in the city, Fogarty told Scoreline.ie that his moment was just one of many in Sunday’s victory for the team.
“We worked tremendously hard and as we were working throughout the field and there’s a lot of moments in the game, blocks, hooks, all that kind of thing, but it’s done throughout the field. There’s one of them no more important than the next one, and you’re trying to do is do your best and work as hard as you can. Clare has serious hurlers, so they’re well capable of scoring, that’s the reality of it. So it’s never going to be playing sailing in any of these matches. It was an All-Ireland semi-final. So, it’s not going to be a cakewalk.”
“I just think we remain composed and we just kept trying to do the right things with the ball.”
Coming up this Saturday on Scoreline, the four-time All-Ireland winner with Kilkenny Conor Fogarty sits down with Robbie Dowling ahead of next Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling final.
A member of the Kilkenny senior panel since 2011 and now one of the more experienced players on the Kilkenny team, Fogarty counts eight Leinster senior hurling titles and five National League titles among his other honours won on the pitch, so he’s well positioned to share his thoughts on the changes brought to the Kilkenny camp this year for Derek Lyng’s first term in charge, how the Cats really performed against Clare in last Sunday’s semi-final victory, what the local support means to him and the team, and more importantly, how he sees next Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling final against Limerick going.
That’s Kilkenny’s Conor Fogarty – the big interview for Scoreline this Saturday afternoon just after 4pm.
