Kildorrery have adapted very well to life in the Intermediate grade since winning the Junior A title in 2012 and have more than held their own. After running eventual county champions Fermoy very close in Round 1 last year ,they would have been disappointed by their exit to Grenagh in the Q-Final after a replay.
Going forward, Kildorrey have plenty of fire power though obviously a tighter defence would be welcomed for Castlemartyr in Round 1.
Peter O'Brien racked up big individual tallies last year and once again will be a key player. The availability of his brother Andrew is a bonus, and Michael Walsh will be vital in anchoring the defence.
