The hard work paid off for TJ Reid and his Ballyhale Shamrocks club-mates in Croke Park today.

The sharpshooter delivered eight points in a ‘man-of-the-match’ display as the Kilkenny standard-bearers maintained their grip on the Tommy Moore Cup against Borris-Ileigh.

“Back-to-back didn’t mean anything all year,” he said in a post-match interview with TG4’s GAA BEO.

“Obviously today was just to win and the records will follow.

“It was a hard, tough year but the dedication and character from all these players, the desire, the work-rate all year, training over Christmas. It’s all worth it here today.

“Seeing both parishes, Borris-Ileigh and Ballyhale Shamrocks up here in Croke Park in January, it’s a special moment.”
