Described this week as “a warrior” by Kilkenny great Eddie Brennan, Conor Fogarty knows a lot about All-Ireland finals.
He’s won four of them with the county, lost a few as well and in recent seasons has worked hard to cement his place in the starting lineup for the Cats, now under Derek Lyng.
We caught up with the Erin’s Own clubman in recent days to get his thoughts on the All-Ireland semi-final against Clare, preparations for Limerick and a chance to run back last year’s decider and, among other things, what the All-Ireland means to him as a player.
