The sides go head to head in Sunday’s All-Ireland Junior Club Semi-Final in Dungarvan.
Cloughduv Junior Hurling director Tim Barry Murphy states they are anticipating the massive challenge that Dunnamaggin are likely to give in Sunday’s All-Ireland Junior Club Semi-Final at Dungarvan.
Talking to KCLR, Tim states they are on incentive land now after what they have already achieved this year.
“Yeah, with no doubt like, I guess look our primary priority backwards in Cork I guess was to win the County Championship in order we can get up Intermediate since We’ve been down today a few decades and that, so attempting to get up Intermediate was that the number one priority”
“Then we chose on the Munster Championship which was a whole new venture to the club Too, never before entered to that and also to win which has been a Massive accomplishment for the club too and we were thrilled with that”
“We’re looking ahead, obviously we’re anticipating a Massive struggle from Dunnamaggin on Sunday and with no doubt we all know it’s definitely going to be a huge challenge, but seem we’re looking forward to it too”
ANOTHER BIG STEP TAKEN BY CLOUGHDUV
THERE IS simply no getting away in your Cork, Kilkenny competition and on Sunday, we get the following instalment of it.
The older Dan Fraher area in Dungarvan should home a top-class game of projecting here involving the very best junior sides in Munster and Leinster and the chances are that hardly will separate them in the last whistle. Cloughduv have experienced marvellous innings thus much but as soon as you get a flavor of success you simply want it to go on and on.
Croke Park on All-Ireland club closing day is something which many clubs can only dream of and typically, it is a once in a life adventure if you arrive there on the big moment.
For both clubs , this dream is now within touching distance and yet in precisely the exact same time that it’s still quite far away. It really is a long and hard journey and also for junior clubs, it is all that much more since you need to negotiate what’s a Grand National class.
Require Cloughduv, they needed to come through Mid Cork originally and whilst they were strong favourites to accomplish this, they needed to be on their guard onto that specific journey. They had to confront the top of the remainder from the other branches to win the county name and after that it was to Munster.
Ballinameela from Waterford supplied the resistance in the Munster last before Christmas in Mallow and following a gritty enough experience, Cloughduv again did the company. They’ve had a couple of weeks away from tough slog of championship fare today and the batteries are re-charged with this formidable task. Facing any Kilkenny facet is an onerous job and, by most reports, this Dunammagin facet is an excellent one. Their best-known player could be former Kilkenny good Noel Hickey and he is still giving excellent service to both sides as an anchorman within their rearguard.
En-route into the closing, they have experienced Tommy Maher, Ronan Coffey, Aidan and John Fitzpatrick in nice shape and they are unwanted, which has a powerful physical presence. They have experienced their fair share of disappointment also and two county Representative closing losses until they made the major breakthrough could have had a negative impact on other nightclubs. However, they have persevered through thin and thick as well as the present crop of players is well balanced and well trained. They are strong defensively with Johnatan Buckley supplying lots of equilibrium in the previous line.
