Fitzgerald not getting carried away

Davy Fitzgerald is refusing to get carried away by Clare's defeat of Kilkenny in the Allianz Hurling League semi-final.

The reigning All-Ireland champions went into Sunday's match as favourites to progress to the league decider, but Clare produced a stunning performance to defeat the Cats 4-22 to 2-19.

While delighted with his team's showing, Fitzgerald is realistic about what lies ahead.

"It's mid-April let's not get carried away with anything stupid," Fitzgerald is quoted as saying in the Irish Sun. "If you're still talking to me in August or September I'll be delighted.

"We're not going to be fooled, we know the quality that's in Kilkenny, we know the quality that's out there amongst a number of teams."

Fitzgerald was unhappy with some of the analysis in the build-up to Sunday's match but admits the disrespectful comments served as great motivation for his team.

"We're not full of it but I think when we're right, we'll compete and that's what we did. It was great motivation," Fitzgerald added.

"I hope people keep saying it! That's brilliant when you're wrote off, that's great, You could probably pick out five or six teams that could win an All-Ireland.

"We're not going to be fooled into thinking anything about that, we're going to plat the league final on its merits in two weeks. We'll just see what happens then."
