Louth turn attention to the Championship
the difference and they killed us in the end.
‘We tried to open it up a bit to chase the game and that cost us a third goal. They were tight and in the second-half they didn’t really look like conceding a goal. e tried to lump a few balls in and that was probably the only way we were going to score one and they dealt with it as well you could expect.
‘It’s a disappointing day all round because it’s definitely a game we felt we could win.’
Duffy played a central part in Tipp’s second goal, firstly preventing a certain goal with a brilliant block and then coughing up possession as he tried to clear the danger. He had stong claims for a free, but Anthony Nolan didn’t agree.
‘I was very disappointed. I made the block and then I don’t know if it was a foul? You usually get those kind of frees coming out, because of where the play is and what’s after happening, but no complaints it is what it is and they stuck it away.’
There was a sense after the game that Louth wouldn’t be dwelling too long on the defeat and Duffy is already looking forward to the Leinster Championship and to getting back to his club for a few league games.
‘We’re moving well and pitches are firming up and we won’t be in Drogheda again luckily enough. We have Wicklow in Parnell Park and hopefully Meath there too.
‘Training is good and it won’t be hard to get going again, we all know the championship is around the corner and we know what we want out of that.
‘I can’t wait to play for the Fechin’s again too. I only played five games last year, so hopefully I’ll get a better run this year,’ he added.
