HL2A: Marty makes it look easy
February 17, 2014
Marty Kavanagh turned on the style as Carlow finished with nine points to spare over Kildare at Newbridge.
With his Mount Leinster Rangers county team-mates watching from the stands, left half-forward Kavanagh produced a virtuoso performance that yielded 1-7 (0-3 from frees).
The Lilywhites made the visitors work hard for the victory and trailed by just 0-5 to 0-8 at the change of ends.
But Kavanagh's class shone through and he added the gloss to a fine individual performance with a goal in the 67th minute.
