Kildare had a comfortable win over Carlow in Dr Cullen Park, Carlow on Thursday evening, winning as they liked in a game they dominate from start to finish.
Leading at the break 1-12 to 1-3, Glenn Ryan's side were in total control again in the second half in a game that saw no less than 12 different scorers in white.
Touogher games to come, no doubt.
