Thank you Saffron it's very good of you to take the time to post here.

All the very best to Antrim also. We're in the same boat in many ways. I was in Belfast following the footballers and the hospitality and craic was terrific.

Thanks Saffron.

Our 4 matches last year against you brought our team on quite a bit.

Good to see Antrim competing well in div1b and pity you didn't survive.

Looking forward to our match in the Mcdonagh cup.

Great draw for us with 3 home games and only 2 away.

Having Kerry, Meath and Westmeath at home is a big advantage.

Antrim away will be difficult.

But 5 games in 7 weeks will be a test of the panel but after promotion
im tipping us to get in the top 2 for the final.

Laois and Antrim both away is very difficult. It's good we have 3 home games, but those two difficult away matches negate that somewhat.

It would be a tremendous acievement for all concerned if we were to finish in the top two. We're capable of it, but there will be more than a few backs to the wall moments to endure along the way. However, when we needed to pull out a result away to Kerry in the league we did it in spades!

Marty Kavanagh has left the panel. What a loss. But we must solider on.

He's a young man and he's entitled to a life outside of hurling. Good luck to him.

We'll have to soldier on is right. It will mean an opportunity for someone else.

Pity about Marty but great opportunity for travel.

Denis Murphy or Kevin Mc Donald could come in for the frees plus
we have John Michael to come back in after his suspension.

Still the strongest panel we have ever had so im still confident.
