On a complete sidenote ... does anyone know how long to soak a dry hurl for in water, i.e. a few minutes or overnight or what?

I suppose I wil have to be the man to fend the four matsers corner as i am an aodh ruadh man who has friends hurling with masters but i was at a friendly they had about a month ago against lisnaskea and they won 3-20 to 1-10 and i thought they would shape up nicley with a team they had one man who was wing forward who was a great man for getting some scores and he was quite young mulhern i think they called him and i think he might of got 10 or 11 points even if they were playin a very poor team i was happy with the way they played and my wee lad loved it but they might be a team to come up against for the future and are all the championship games definitley on wednesdays because i would love to go to some and are they definitley starting tomorrow

i totally disagree purdy even though i havent seen setanta play yet i was at the four masters mccuilleamhs game last night and mccuilleamhs are like a complete team even though four masters unfitness showed after 10 minute the way mccuilleamhs could pick out a pass and make it effective i couldnt find one fault in their play even if four masters gave up after half time because they didnt have anone who could do it for them but mathewson controlled the game and young culhane from centre back done some job marking mulhern even if he did score all four masters score he would have been my man of the man definitley one for the future but maybe four masters should start training and take things serious from now on with eunans next week.......... could you tell me purdy what are eunans like

i just read over my last comment there some of you might of misunderstood but it was culhane who i said was man of the match and one for the future though mulhern is almost definitley one for the future he needs to express himself more in the physical battles

Paul Sheridan was Four Masters best player, and over all Man of the Match would be Paddy Hannigan he ran the show from midfield, Mc Cools the team to watch

mc cools were too good for four masters and defeinately look easily thr favourites but dont rule out beart or setanta , and "fetch" im nearly sure it was jamesy donnelly who was marking mulhern last night

LKGAELS11 (Donegal) - Posts:48 - 16/06/2011 18:05:40   958236

there was a good pace to the first 10 minutes of the game but then the unfitness from masters showed and sheridan was there only real option except mulhern from frees and a good point from play it was severely disappointing but mccuilleamhs will win it if they have the same heart in every game like they did last night so best of luck mccuilleamhs

oh was it sorry my mistake well that explains it then i just assumed donnelly would have been centre back sorry for any inconvienience caused
