It was a successful start to Carlow’s Joe McDonagh campaign on Saturday with a resounding victory over Meath.
Tom Mullally’s men started strong and never let up, leading 2.15 to 10 points by halftime with the game finishing up 4-30 to 17 points in Pairc Tealteann.
Carlow takes on Kerry on Saturday at 1 pm in Netwatch Cullen Park.
We caught up with Tom Mullally after the game:
“We have to maximise what you have there and I think of the course of the league we tried a lot of younger players and that experience alone will stand to them the longer we go on,” said Tom.
“They’ve played teams, it hasn’t gone quite to plan in terms of the league but this is a new competition, the start is important, it generates a bit of momentum”.
“We’ve got a big match coming next week against Kerry at home and then we travel to Antrim so for the minute we can only concentrate on Kerry and this time next week we’ll have a better idea of where we stand”.
“But on today (game v Meath), it was excellent, their attitude, their movement, their support, communication, responsibility, all those things you’re looking for out of the players was excellent”.
