Speaking to The Echo after the defeat to Limerick Kieran Kingston said, “We came here for a result and we didn’t get that and that was disappointing. As I said, we threw off the shackles there in the second half and had a right go, but just came up short in the end”. Players like Pat Horgan, Seamus Harnedy and Eoin Cadogan will be key to the Rebel cause here.
