Managers Comment
‘Like Cobh, Galway will be coming here scrapping for every ball and it will be a tough game for us.

Friday's match was easily our worst game of the season.

If every team is entitled to one bad day in a season then I'd definitely like to think we've had ours.

The conditions were awful, things that could go wrong did but that's not taking away from Cobh who deserve full credit for their win.

We didn't play well but Galway will be another game and another chance to put three more points on the board' – John McDonnell
