Donnchadh Walsh was having flashbacks to 1992 in the immediate wake of his double-yellow dismissal in Ennis last Sunday.

The Kerry veteran feared a repeat of Clare's storied Munster final ambush of the Kingdom after being sent off after 32 minutes.

"I was very disappointed ... I was kind of having flashbacks to maybe 25 years previous," Walsh admitted.

"But I soon refocused myself and said 'How can I be a positive influence on this dressing room?'

"The performance they put in in the second half was brilliant.

"We dug out a good win. It was a huge relief."

Kildare ladies football boss Morgan O'Callaghan has stepped down after just six months in charge.

"After losing both of our Leinster championship games, Morgan believes the girls now need a fresh impetus and renewed motivation ahead of the All-Ireland qualifiers at the end of July," said a statement from the Kildare LGFA, which will now seek to install an interim manager.
