In slightly related news at the Dub tonight Our Ladyís and St Pats Knock qualified for the McLarnon Cup final, beating St Pauls Dungannon by a point. The school is in Down but at least 6 of the team are St Brigids lads. Great achievement for the school under Frankie Wilsonís management.

Some days it all just clicks and it sounds like yesterday was such a day. I was sorry to have missed it but as usual the twitter updates and social media coverage were top drawer.

Itís as tight a division as I remember but confidence should be high now. We have travelled to Wicklow and won a few times over the years and can do so again, that would set up a promotion clash on the last day just where we want it - at home.

Unfortunately I won't be there tomorrow, due to an entirely avoidable fixture clash between south Antrim Feile fixtures and the county game.. Strange how we disadvantage ourselves on a regular basis. I do feel though that a win is in our grasp, that we can then set up an exciting finale to the league campaign.

The same applies to our hurlers - win tomorrow and we are effectively in league final. Wouldn't two wins just be the perfect Sunday?

Promotion is still there for us, if we win on Sunday and head into last two games v Wicklow and Waterford knowing that two wins takes us up....I'd settle for that. We can finish on 11 points, that takes us up.

Big Shivers played very well, but there was a lot more to the win than that. Very strong team performance especially at the beginning of the second half, playing into a gale force wind, we got the scores then that were the difference in the end. Derry poor going forward, didnít score for more than 30 mins play, but they were under big pressure from our lads when in possession.

Very encouraging result and performance. Maybe more to come from some of our players too, great to see.

The Antrim v Derry U 20 match is now on Friday night at the Dub. Thats a great venue for it and hopefully a decent crowd shows up to support our young players. It could be a cracking match too.

Limerick are going to be tough to beat, especially away (think that is away?). But if we end the league with only one defeat we will go up. Head to head win over Wexford night come into play. Huge game coming up v Carlow at home. It appears they arenít the team they were two seasons ago, a repeat of performance against Wexford could see us home in Carlow game.

There are some 50 year olds who lined out last season and are a few years off a heart attack yet!

I wasn't there yesterday, so fair play to Bannside and anyone else who made the journey. Its been a while since I was at an away league game, Wicklow in fact, when we last got promotion.

I listened to the Ocean FM commentary - love those unashamedly one sided commentaries and fair play to Ocean FM - and I thought that it was sounding like we were in for a draw which would have been fine by me. This isn't a disaster though, a win in London looks entirely within reach and then its all attention on the home game v Carlow, which becomes a must win. If we end up with 6 points after 4 games promotion will be in our own hands.

Heads up all round, and it is important too that a decent crowd turn up late Feb for the Carlow game.
