We’ve been speaking to Cork senior camogie manager Paudie Murray ahead of their league final encounter with Kilkenny.

Cork Senior Camogie manager Paudie Murray says Kilkenny’s strength in depth is frightening.

Speaking to KCLR ahead of Sunday’s National League Final, Paudie says that Kilkenny could put out a 2nd team and still be very strong.

“Their strength in depth is frightening really”, says Fogarty.

“I think they could probably put out two teams in the senior level and both compete very well there, so the strength in depth is pretty frightening.”
