Captain Brian Byrne speaks to us about the game and the influence of James Burke to his side.
Kildare bounced back from a disappointing league campaign, to claim Christy Ring glory in Croke Park on Saturday last. Their poor league form in 2018 ultimately cost them their 2A status in the National Hurling League, which came to a head when their defeat to London in the final group game left them destined for 2B. Saturday gave Kildare a chance to reprieve some revenge on the result of that dark day. And they gladly did so, two goals from Jack Sheridan and another from Shane Ryan paved the way for team captain Brian Byrne to raise the Christy Ring trophy.
