Kildare hurling star Paul Divilly says he is relishing the year ahead while also looking “at the bigger picture”.

Divilly was named 2020 Christy Ring Cup Player of the Year for 2020 this week and says he’s looking forwards to getting back to action for the Lilywhites this season, even with patience required for a return to play.

"Everyone is in the same boat and we're all fed up I suppose," he told RTE Sport.

"We all want answers, but we're all realistic enough to know that there's no answer to be got at the moment.

"We just have to wait on public health advice. It is frustrating but you have to look at the bigger picture and take it as it comes.

"We're still training away by ourselves and doing as much as we can - rolling with the punches, that's all we can do.

"Keep the positive, best foot forward and see how we get on. We're looking forward to the year ahead however it unfolds."
