Moved due to McKenna unplayable, good to the fixture being brought to a club venue just hope the surface will be up to scratch, hasn't a reputation for a great hurling surface.

Great win with a bit luck C Egan could have scored a few goals although kildare hit a lot of wides.. Would love to see Risher, P Savage and R McCrickard back into the team would be very strong then.. Taught Woods and Toner stood up when needed

Slow to start but fine win in the end. Shoulda netted a few and again weak at the back letting kildare in for their goal. Shoulda took im out earlier.
Good win all the same.

the old pitch in Liatroim had that problem, not the new one which was top nick..

That was a good win against a team that would have expected to beat us.

As much as John McManus is a fine hurler (as good as we've got) we need his skillset further out the field and someone with a bigger physical presence shoring up the No3 spot.


Still in with a shout, but if Kildare beat Derry it'll maybe depend on the scoreline as it will be a three way tie!

I'd say Croke Park are pissed at us as if Kildare had won then they wouldn't have needed to refix the Derry/Kildare game.

Down are through to final as their SD is +53 which is 20 pts better than Derry hence if Derry lose v Kildare then kildare play down in final as all three teams on 8pts but Down and Kildare have far better SD

If Derry win then Down play Derry in the final as derry finish on 10pts, Down 8pts and Kildare 6pts

Armagh play Donegal in 3A final so their could easily be two all Ulster league finals

You seem to have a problem with county management no2, why would you not credit the management team, personally i think they're doing a great job...would this be a bit of jelously on your behalf, do you think you should've got the job? Down hurlers are doing something they have'nt done for a long time ( playing as a team) so lets give credit to both players and management and good luck in the final

Have to agree there, also a bit of a buzz around the lads to. It's great to see club teams sharing news and updates on the county hopefully push younger lads into trying out for development squads then trying to push on into the team

Derry in the league decider, how do we think we will go here, we've improved since the first encounter earlier in the league but it won't be an easy ask, Derry are a good outfit.

Derry lucky to get the draw in Celtic Park it seems and considering we had a little to spare on Kildare we've a decent chance.

I presume this is set for Armagh this weekend?
