McGrath: Deise are devastated

Waterford suffering after narrow defeat to Kilkenny

Waterford boss Derek McGrath says that his Waterford troops are 'devastated' following their narrow All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship defeat to Kilkenny.

The Cats led by five points early in the second-half of Saturday's semi-final replay but the Deise forced their way back into the affair.

Pauric Mahony had a big chance to land a goal for Waterford late on, only for Kilkenny goalkeeper Eoin Murphy to make a fine save.

Brian Cody's men ultimately went on to secure a 2-19 to 2-17 win.

“I’m devastated for the lads because they put so much effort into it," McGrath told RTE Sport.

“We have to give due credit to Kilkenny overall - that traditional third-quarter push from Kilkenny. We just said we’d go to the end no matter what.

"I'm immensely proud but devastated that we came to win the match and thought we had a eat chance to win the match. There’s no consolation going toe to toe with an empire - you know we’re here to win the match, and we weren’t able to do that.

"The day of moral victories for Waterford … I think we are trying to get away from that whole environment; we’re trying to create our culture."

The Cats will meet either Tipperary or Galway in the final, which takes place on 4 September.
