Kiladangan have made an impressive start to the County Senior Hurling Championship.
Last year’s beaten finalists were 2-23 to 1-17 winners over Thurles Sarsfields.
Having been beat n in the North final Kiladangan came into the group stages under some pressure as the other three teams involved are divisional champions so have the safety net of a preliminary quarter final.
Ken Hogan was very impressed with the Kiladangan performance in Semple Stadium this afternoon.
“Absolutely outstanding display – really played well right throughout the game. You could see that they had something to play for – and they really had you have to say. You know Kiladangan would have been under huge pressure if things didn’t work out today but overall a tremendous display.
“Surprisingly I think Thurles very lethargic, off the boil…didn’t look up for the fight from my point of view bar Aidan McCormack and a couple of more lads.
“I think a big win for Kiladangan and even at this early stage look strong contenders again for Dan Breen.”
