Kildare minor manager Brendan Hackett
KILDARE eyes will now turn to mounting a serious challenge for All Ireland honours after they claimed a second successive Leinster MFC title in Croke Park last Sunday.
Last year’s beaten semi-finalists are back in the All Ireland series but this time they intend on going at least one step further, according to manager Brendan Hackett.
“Last year we got to a semi-final and so you have to think that way,” admitted a gleaming Hackett.
“There are (potentially) three games left and that is what you have to focus on. Kildare have never won a minor All Ireland, which is a shame, and it would be lovely to win but look, for starters it would be just nice to get to a final and be there. And these guys are hungry enough for that. But before then there are tricky games ahead.”
