Paul Mannion admits Kilmacud Crokes have set their "sights on bigger things".

The All Star attacker was in superb form again last weekend, bagging 2-6 as the newly-crowned Dublin champions eased past Dunboyne in their Leinster Club SFC opener. Ominously, he says the Crokes are gunning for further glory:

"It would have tainted it a bit, getting knocked out in the first round of the Leinster championship after winning the Dublin championship, which we all know is so difficult to win," Mannion told The Irish Daily Star. "We're here to keep going as long as we can ... another huge game in a couple of weeks' time.

"Even though we wanted to win the Dublin championship, we put a lot of our sights on bigger things as well. We'll do our best to get a Leinster championship under the belt now. We have to be at our absolute best to win it."
