Munster Final : Waterford battled gamely against a powerful Limerick team , Tadhg De Burca was like an orchestra conductor such was his role in nearly all good play from Waterford. Liam Cahill has brought this team forward and credit must go to how they are playing , to win a Quarter final would be huge boast to this group of players.

Part Two of Kieran Ryan Interview:
Did you win a college hurling title with De La Salle College Waterford?
Yes. Pat Daly and myself played on a muster under 15 winning team in Lismore vs St.Finbars Farrenferis. The score line was De La Salle 7:6 and St. Finbars was 5:6. A good friend of mine to this day Pat Flynn, the well known Waterford horse trainer scored 3 goals that day. Great memories.

You played on an under 21 hurling final in 1974 at 17 years old? Was it daunting?
No I never found it daunting, it was very exciting to be chosen to play at such a young age. I found it thrilling to be picked to play on that team with so many other talented players. It was a privilege to play with players such as Pat Mcgragth, John Galvin, Tom Casey, Liam O’Brian and my good friend who is also living here in London, Willie Ryan. I'd like to thank the selectors at the time who had great faith in me at that age as I was 16 in the Munster final and 17 in the All Ireland.

How much did the two Munster Final loses have an effect on you as a player?
Through no one's fault, looking back now I believe that we were under prepared going into both games. We had good enough players but came up against a very good Cork team who went on to win All Irelands. To answer your question, I was gutted and disappointed on both occasions and to be honest it did have an effect on my intercounty career.

You had brothers that hurled for Tallow, was there any game that you all played together?
Unfortunately I can't remember a game where we all played together, but I did play with my brother Frankie and Con which was very special for the family. My brother Aidan later went on to play with Frankie and Con but unfortunately I was not around at that time.

Centenary year you led Tallow to a county title success, Was it a great honour for you?
Yes indeed, definitely one of the proudest moments in the height of my career. I was fortunate enough to lead out a great team who played exceptionally well on the day and it was a great victory.

You spent time in America and England was it hard to keep yourself fit as a result?
Yes, I was fortunate or unfortunate to be in those places. The training wasnt as intense. But I was lucky to have had success in both countries. I met some great people, many of whom are still my friends to this day.
