Kilkenny manager Richie Mulrooney believes his side didn't do themselves justice in their 11-point All-Ireland minor final loss to Galway.

“There’s no comparison between that display and the way we played against Limerick. We were just flat, for whatever reason,” he is quoted as saying in the Irish News.

However, he was quick to point out that successful minors don't always go on to have successful senior careers. 

“Some of the greatest Kilkenny hurlers of the 21st century, and even players playing against Tipperary in the senior final, they don’t have any All-Ireland minor medal,” he continued.

“They didn’t appear in any All-Ireland minor final. This is only a starting step. Henry Shefflin, JJ Delaney, Tommy Walsh, Eddie Brennan, they don’t have All-Ireland minor medals. But that didn’t stop them, and it won’t stop our lads.”
