Kilcormac-Killoughey manager Danny Owens believes that the team’s lack of senior inter-county players won’t be a major factor in Sunday's Leinster Club SHC final with Oulart-The Ballagh.
The men from the Model County, who dispatched Ballyhale Shamrocks in the semi-final, are favourites to progress from Nowlan Park (2pm) having a number of Wexford stars, including Rory Jacob, Garrett Sinnott and David Redmond, on the team but Owens was keen to discount this fact.
"County men or otherwise won't really come into it. We're going into this with our shoulders back," Owens told the Irish Independent.
"I mean we've young fellas there that won't give two tuppence for county men this Sunday. It's all in the mind really."
Owens, an All-Ireland winner with Offaly in 1985, added: "They'll go out there to give it a lash. We're representing the county and we have to sort of do our best to follow in the footsteps of Coolderry and Birr and St Rynagh's who have done it in the past.”
