Kiladangan manager Brian Lawlor spoke to Paul Jenkins after the game:

“Just very happy to be in the hat now for the draw.

“We haven’t had a competitive match in a long time, I know we played Moycarkey but the group was already decided so you’re going back a long time since we were really pushed in a championship match.

“We did get a serious game out of Upperchurch there, we were well ahead maybe towards the end but in the first half it was extremely competitive and we’re delighted to get that ring rustiness out of our system and we’re primed and ready to go now for a semi-final.”
