“Ye, the movement was good we probably could have had a couple more but overall I have to be pleased with the display McGeeney told the local media.

“Daryl (Flynn) I was very impressed with, that was his first 35 minutes of action all year with us and that was a big plus for us.”

Eoin Doyle was taken off and was later on crutches but the manager said that “while he went over on his ankle and as usual with Eoin, you have to drag him off, which is a good sign but hopefully hel’ll be okay, while he, McGeeney, confirmed that Pádraig O’Neill picked up a bruse on the side of the leg in training last week while Paddy Brophy came off with a bit of a thumb injury (against Galway) but nothing serious by all accounts.

With the opening Leinster Championship game on Saturday 1 June, the manger said that he hopes to play one or two more games before that.

“The lads are back with their clubs from this evening (Sunday) and hopefully they will all be back with us on Monday for recovery night, hopefully no draws in the championship, with only three weeks to the Offaly game.”
