Carlow supervisor Turlough O’Brien felt Brendan Murphy’s second-half red-card was the vital snapshot of this present night’s Leinster SFC Quarter-Final thrashing to Dublin.
In any case, in spite of the outcome he was glad for his collaboration’s and trusts the way in which they smothered Dublin for long extends of the diversion ought to give different groups in the area trust.
“Losing Brendan was a major blow,” said O’Brien. “The numerical favorable position truly told against us.
“The fellows worked their socks off. We had no issue with fellows quit or anything like that – I don’t think Dublin had a shot on objective in the entire amusement.
“We didn’t come up here to hold the scoreline down – we came up here to contend, to see where it would take us, how we’d measure up against Dublin. To perceive what potential there is in the group.
“One hundred for every penny of savants would have said Dublin will win this slow and steady. It didn’t turn out that way. Perhaps at last they put a touch of sunlight between us however that was the upside of the additional man. I think Carlow appeared there is a lot of football in them.
“I don’t think savants ought to shed any crocodile tears for Carlow or any of the lower-positioned districts on a day like today. We needn’t bother with loftiness dribbling from pens or consoles. We’re extremely cheerful to be on that pitch with Dublin. We gave a, decent record of ourselves.
“I think a considerable measure of provinces have fallen foul of the general agreement that it’s an inescapable result when you play Dublin – they’re beaten before they begin.
“I trust today gives other Leinster regions, who might view themselves as to be higher positioned than Carlow, that they would adapt to present circumstances when they do meet Dublin.”
