Two Mile House manager Niall Browne admits that he is proud of his players’ exploits over the last 12 months or so.

The Kildare and Leinster club IFC champions were just 60 minutes away from a place in an All-Ireland final at Croke Park.

A close fought semi-final against Kerry's Kilcummin saw just a point between the teams at the final whistle, but unfortunately for Two Mile House, it was the men from the Kingdom that had their noses in front.

Speaking to the Leinster Leader, Browne stated that his side gave it their all throughout the campaign and despite being disappointed over being knocked out, he paid tribute to the players.

“At the start of the season I told the boys I felt that we could win the All-Ireland and I still believe that,” said Browne.

“Look maybe in a year or two’s time we will look back at this season and say it was a great season, a great journey, winning Leinster and making it to the All-Ireland semi-final, but not at the minute; the more I think about it, the more it hurts, we could so easily have got over the line, it is disappointing for everyone involved.

“Remember it is not everyday that you get a chance to get to play in Croke Park in an All-Ireland final and I feel we had the team good enough to do that but it just did not materialise that unfortunately is the way it is; we have to accept it but yet, it is hugely disappointing for all the players who put in a tremendous effort to get us here.”
