Ahead of tomorrow’s Liberty Insurance Premier Junior All Ireland Final we spoke to Dublin’s Nadine Murphy, Aoibhe Dillon and Laois Quinn for their thoughts ahead of the game.
The three players spoke about their preparations for tomorrow’s final against Kerry in Croke Park.
Aoibhe Dillion is new to the squad this year and she expressed her excitement at fulfilling her dream of playing in an All Ireland Final in Croke Park this Sunday.
Dublin qualified for the final last season as well and Laoise Quinn explained what it was like to play in that game, the noise and atmosphere that greeted the players and despite the result it was a brilliant experience for the players.
Nadine Murphy believes that Dublin will hold one advantage over Kerry who are playing in their maiden final and that’s the experience they garnered from playing in last year’s decider which will certainly be in their favour.
She spoke about how the noise last year as she entered the tunnel took her by surprise and how difficult it was to communicate with her fellow teammates on the pitch.
Even speaking it about though doesn’t do it justice according to Nadine and that you really have to experience it to fully understand it.
Aoibhe Dillon is Dublin’s top scorer in the championship and the free taker of the team, but the young star is taking it all in her stride and says she won’t be building up the fact that she will taking frees in Croke Park and will remain level headed about it.
The ladies went on to talk about what they expect from Kerry in the game, the bond among the squad and how the more experienced players are helping out the new girls in the squad to prepare for the final and what to expect on the day. and much, much more.
