A mixed weekend for Kildare GAA.
Defeat for Kildare yesterday for the senior footballers against Monaghan in the opening Super 8 game.
Despite an early Daniel Flynn goal and other good chances not taken, Kildare trailed 0-10 to 1-5 at the break.
Monaghan were never lead in the 2nd half, and despite Eamonn Callaghan, in his 16th season with Kildare, reducing the deficit to one point in injury time, Monaghan closed the scoring to win by 2 points.
Here’s manager Cian O’Neill
