Great win. Very important to get a good start in this tournament as it is so tight and every game is massive.

decent performance from Antrim on sat. Bit of a slow start to let them go up 0-03 in no time at all but once we settled we defended well and forced them to shoot from range in the first half.

thought that Conor Boyd was very good, read the game well and made a lot of good interceptions. a fine hours hurling for him. Rocky was like a wall in there at full back.

Tough game away to Laois now. they had a good win over offaly
hurl like f**k boi!

Great win to start off the Joe McDonagh campaign. Took the first 10 minutes to figure out the defensive style and set up of the Kerry team from there on there was only going to be one winner. Dillon and Boyd were 2 rocks in defensive Mattie Donnelly caught and clearer some ball. Neil stepped up and showed his class when needed and took over frees from young McNaughton who was unusually poor for his own high standard. Keelan Molloy I thought had a super game. Good start and good for the confidence heading to Portlaoise for a really tough game against a Laois side who we always seem to struggle against and who hit Offaly for 4-22 whilst hitting 17 wides as well. If we can defend as well as we did against Kerry Iíve no doubt the lads will be heading back up the road with another 2 points.

we got out of jail yesterday big style! 2 goals in the last min of the game won the game for us when, to be honest, we didnt look to deserve to win it.

we were missing 9 starting players which doesnt help any team but at the same time they did dig out the result at the end up which was pleasing.

st galls got a good result away to cushendall i see there this morning.
hurl like f**k boi!

Anyone at the Laois game? Hearing rave reports about their goalie but more to the point saves apart were we challenging them or were they too strong for us? Difficult competition and to be honest we're possibly at the lower end of the standard here so it was very important to beat Kerry. Not sure what to expect from Offaly game but Westmeath will be a big challenge.
