This DJ is ‘savagely proud’ of IT Carlow

Kilkenny legend DJ Carey was ‘savagely proud’ of his IT Carlow team after the reigning League champions drew with the reigning Fitzgibbon champions Mary I before a big crowd last night in Carlow. 

The home side trailed by eight points early in the second-half, 0-14 to 0-6, but battled back to level and then lead in the closing stages before Mary I equalised at the death to make it 0-18 apiece.

’It’s a great result, though we’re slightly disappointed we didn’t win it in the end’, says Carey, while Mary I manager Jamie Wall was happy to leave with a share of the spoils after a thrilling finale.

Qualification for the quarter-finals will now depend on next week’s last round of group games.
