Loughgiel quietly rebuilding and it appears what they have are a batch of very talented hurlers on their books as evidenced by several of them on the present county panel, plus young Roadstone coming in behind the current crop who is being tipped for big things.
 
It might be a year or two though before Loughgiel are among the silverware which begs the question who will challenge Dunloy in the interim in the Antrim SHC?

Then again Loughgiel are well capable of upsetting the odds early in their rebuild and Cushendall never too far away either.

However, should Dunloy reclaim Big Ears they will run into Slaughtneil somewhere along the road. With Dunloy having broken the Slaughtneil hoodoo and Slaughtneil out to regain their Ulster title, that would be a match well worth watching, depending on Slaughtneil’s progress in the Derry SFC.

That would be a shame if it was the case, I am pretty sure they have been in an intermediate final in the last 10 years. they beat Carey in a final a good few years ago.

Will the seniors get the same treatment from the cats at the weekend? Hopefully not but I think its fair to say that the Walsh cup was not encouraging. Are any of the Dunloy boys back for the weekend or are they having a break?

I think we will be competitive at home at this time of the year. Come the Leinster championship it may be different.

Yeah I would agree, Corrigan is a big home advantage for us in the earlier part of the year. Leinster championship could be a hastening experience but these are the games we want to be involved in

All the Dunloy squad are back as far as I know.

Yep this sounds right, the big hitters look at the league to try some fringe players. We quite rightly throw everything at it to try and stay up. They are in a completely different gear than we are and still grind out wins.

That’s some spread of clubs on the Kilkenny team, no Ballyhale players thankfully but a very strong team all the same
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Strong defense. Be interesting to see how McManus does on lawlor as he is some full back.

Hoping for a good performance here. Let's be honest a win would be a shock but it'd be great.

Horrendous conditions in second half  :P Did our best but that was a 10+ game in more benign conditions
