"When we came in we felt that they (Cork) were the standard bearers and to take the crown we would have had to take them out. And that's said with massive respect to them because they brought the game to that level and it has been our goal to set a standard higher than them."
A more economical Magheracloone booked their place in the semi final of the senior championship at7 the expense of a wasteful Castleblayney in this well contested round 3B qualifier game that was played in difficult and wet conditions in Inniskeen last night.
