Kilkenny v Rest of Ireland: The showdown

DJ Carey

Published 28/10/2013 | 01:00

I started with Kilkenny seniors in 1990 and finished in 2005, but decided to stretch the period for my best Kilkenny and Rest of Ireland teams to the present time. It would be some contest between these two outfits. I would be happy to referee it!

I've chosen Willie O'Connor to captain Kilkenny and Ciaran Carey to lead 'The Rest'.

There are several lads on the Kilkenny side who captained the team at various stages, but if I had to select one to lead us into war, it would be Willie.

I've picked Ciaran Carey to lead 'The Rest' because his style of play lifted those around him. There was that little something extra about his inspirational qualities that stood out for me.
