Peter Queally and Abbeyside are hoping to spoil Ballygunner’s five-in-a-row Waterford SHC party today.
Former Deise star Queally is well aware of the challenge that faces his troops at Fraher Field but says they are determined to enjoy the occasion as they go in search of a first ever SHC success.
“There’s no-one underestimating the task that’s ahead of us,” he commented to RTE Sport.
“They’re an outstanding team. They’ve gone through all four of the previous Championships unbeaten, even in league stages.
“They were ultra-impressive in their semi-final win over Passage, who had been good up to that point.
“The task is daunting but, at the same time, after waiting so long to get back into a final, it’s one the Abbeyside lads are relishing and looking forward to.”
