GAA Digest: Cork easily beat dismal Kerry
What's going on in GAA this week
Longford boss Glenn Ryan was hurting when he spoke to reporters.
“It is very, very hard to take. I feel very bad for the lads,” said Ryan as his team suffered a first loss in 2012.
“I am not going to say it won’t take a lot to get the lads back, we will have to see during the week. We will feel sorry for ourselves for a few days and rightly so.
CLARE boss Micheal McDermott admitted he was a bag of nerves as his side held on for a 1-13 to 0-15 victory over Limerick in the Munster SFC semifinal on Saturday night.
David Tubridy secured a late winner to send Clare into a provincial final date with Cork and McDermott was delighted afterwards.
He said, “It was difficult, very, very difficult. The pressure of that last 10 minutes was phenomenal.
“Every sort of feeling is going through your body; are we going to lose it, are we going to get back to a draw for another day or are we going to win?”
Cork will be red hot favorites in the Munster final, and McDermott knows his team have work to do before that game.
He said. “We’ll make headlines this week, but the hard work will have to start again.”
