Ballymun Kickhams manager Ken Robinson says that despite the awful weather conditions, they are delighted to be playing winter football.

The Dublin champions face Portlaoise in the Leinster Club SFC final in Mullingar on today (throw-in 13:45) and Robinson is relishing the challenge.

“Winter football isn’t it a great place to be. The lads are prepared for that, they’re training in those conditions. They are ready for it,” Robinson told RTÉ Sport.

“We played the last day [against Sarsfields] and conditions were awful. There was an atrocious amount of rain coming down. That’s a test, it’s a challenge.

“But our skill levels are good, the lads kick the ball well. Their handling is good and it’s an extra test that they are accomplished to achieve.

“When you get to a Leinster final you know you are going to have good opposition. We take each game as it comes and we’re ready for this,” added Robinson.
