Carlow senior hurling forward Seamus Murphy says his side want to be hurling at the top level.
Speaking to KCLR following Carlow’s Christy Ring Cup Final victory over Antrim on Saturday, Seamus says they won’t be afraid of playing Laois in their All-Ireland Preliminary Round Qualifier.
“It’s a nice kind of back door way back into the Leinster Championship, where we want to be. We won’t be afraid of Laois, and they won’t be afraid of us”, said Murphy.
“We will be underdogs so we will go and give it a crack, and if we get through there who knows what happens because that’s the level we want to be hurling at.”
“We set out to get promoted in the league and to win the Christy Ring and we fell at the last hurdle in the League so we will be in the same division next year. But, we are back up in the Round Robin, well I think we might have been anyway with the restructures but we won our way back up into the Leinster Championship proper for next year so that’s the level we want to hurl at.”
Carlow meet Laois in O’Moore Park on Sunday 25 June with a 3.30pm throw in.
