This Kildare team is a very young team and they fought hard for their points, the support that they gave to each other was fantastic and they were very happy with their performances. I was delighted to be asked to be team manager and they made my job very easy, so thank you to all the girls I hope you all had a well deserved lie in today. Kildare Team -89points.

Congratlations and best wishes for round two which will take place in Tullamore on 5th July.
