Hannon: We Clann' kick on

ALBERT HANNON manages the Clanna Gael Fontenoy seniors with Mick Flood and Dave Ryan. He was chuffed with the display against Sylvester's.

"It was a fantastic performance. We have so many young players and we are learning all the time. And I firmly believe the girls have the ability to do well.

"Our hand-passing and movement was excellent against Syls. Everybody worked so hard. I felt Rachael Byrne was outstanding.

"Kim Flood is always such a good leader for us and Lynn Flood just controlled the game so well. We played good football, but after going behind by three points late on we were pleased to get a draw out of it in the end. It was a cracking match.

"We have to go to Ballyboden now. That will be a tough one. But we'll give it a go."

Albert is pleased with the way the sport in progressing at the club. "We have some terrific juvenile players coming through the ranks. They are showing big potential.

"It's all about keeping things going, working hard and developing the players as best we can. We have to be patient, but we are going in the right direction."

Or as some of the younger members of the panel might prefer to say – One Direction!
