WATCH: Castleknock win "pleasing day at the office", says Kilkenny


Castleknock forward Ciaran Kilkenny says it was a "pleasing day at the office" after a 1-6 0-7 victory over St Brigid's booked a Dublin Senior Football Championship quarter-final place.

The Dublin star scored 1-4 as the 2016 Dublin finalists recovered from an early deficit to blitz their local rivals at Parnell Park.

St Brigid's led 0-3 0-1 but a Kilkenny goal after a powering run across the line by Thomas McDaniels sparked a Castleknock onslaught and they led 1-8 0-4 at the interval.

Castleknock extended their lead after the break and any hopes St Brigid's had of a recovery were dashed when Philip Ryan saw his penalty saved by Morven Connolly.

Ryan let out his frustrations and was red carded for a strike on Eoin O’Brien as Castleknock notched a series of late scores to put a gloss on their victory.

Kilkenny told eir sport: "It is a very pleasing day at the office, equally to get one over on our local rivals, St Brigid's.

"To finally play them in the Senior Football Championship is iconic for our club and it has been a massive day, especially when we are only 20 years in existence.

"So to be playing at this level is really special for us and I am really delighted to get the win today.

Asked if his man-of-the-match performance was proof he was enjoying his full forward role, he added: "I am looking to do whatever I can for the team. It is a really good four weeks since coming back to the club. Great to be back and play with lads I grew up with and went to school with."

Castleknock now have two wins out of two and face Ballymun Kickhams in their final game in Group 2 with top spot the prize for both teams.

Kilkenny added: "We play Ballymun next, and with plenty of Dublin lads in their team there will be plenty of craic and banter, so looking forward to that one, too.

"It is nice to be in the quarter-final now, but we know that against Ballymun we have the opportunity test ourselves against one of the best teams in Dublin and there will be a lot of bragging rites, so it's a serious game."
