Speaking to Scoreline St.Mullins Stalwart Marty Kavanagh believes Carlow is hitting their stride at the right time;
“The championship is where it’s at, and that’s where every player wants to be. Like going to training with the long evenings, playing matches and the good weather and ball hopping off the turf that’s when everyone wants to play.”
“There’s a great comradery at the moment and everyone’s really fighting for each other. There are places for grabs every week, there’s obviously a few lads there itching to get in. “
“Suppose the team is performing decent enough like so obviously it’s hard. There’s plenty of lads there on our tails if you have a bad game or pick up a knock, so it’s great, competition is great and it’s healthy. “
“It’s a very healthy environment there at the moment and yeah, things are going decent now. So we’re happy enough. “
