Cian Kiely insists Cork have 'momentum' going into the Munster SFC, despite being relegated to Division 3 of the Allianz Football League for the first time.

Following a poor first half to the campaign, which ultimately cost them their Division 2 status, the Rebels finished strongly with wins away to Tipperary and Armagh. 

“It brings optimism that we knew the shape and structure that work for us now, we just have to build on that and keep training hard on that going forward,” Kiely told the Irish Examiner at the UCC Sport Star awards.

“Things didn’t go our way at the start of the year and as the league went on we started to find our feet and we found the shape and structure that suited us. As the league went on we progressed and got better with each game and coming towards the end of the league we started to show our true colours and we started getting some good results.

“We found our style and it’s about building on that.”
