“It’s not about last year, it’s not about next year, it’s about 2020 to us” – Kilkenny’s Anne Dalton

“We’re massively privileged, a lot of people haven’t had the opportunity to socialise like we did over the past couple of months” – Down’s Niamh Mallon
Focusing on the short-term proved the key as Down put a number of recent disappointments behind them to end a six-year wait for Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Championship silverware by winning the Intermediate title at Kingspan Breffni on Saturday.
Down manager Derek Dunne maintains that his charges are ready to make the step up to Senior competition after a power-packed second-half display finally saw off a youthfully exuberant Antrim side with a very bright future by 4-16 to 2-10 in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Intermediate Championship Final at Kingspan Breffni on Saturday.

Niamh Mallon illustrated the full breadth of her wonderful talents as a well balanced Down made experience count, producing a power-packed second-half performance to win the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Intermediate Championship for the first time in 22 years at Kingspan Breffni.
It was unlucky 13 for Cavan as Ciara Donnelly shot the lights out to banish Armagh’s nightmare of losing the decider of four years ago and finally become Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Intermediate champions.
