i hear that the senior team are going to Portugal for 4 days before JMCD campaign, this must be what the golf day is funding  :-X

Don't let Spike know about that, as apparently we can't afford sandwiches

Now - if only the footballers could go away on a wee break, things would soon pick up.

The cycling is terrific in Portugal I'm told.

Would Antrim be worth backing at 11/2, in the Joe mcdonagh cup. Laois are favs with pp. Surely Antrim are capable of beating laois.

We could win every game or lose every game. Very unpredictable. Not much between all the teams.

I was thinking the same, Antrim are the outsiders, last out of 5 teams. I think 11/2 is good value, laois are 9/4(I think) favs. Was there trouble in the camp in Portugal? Might change my mind on backing Antrim.

Hmm I wish I were that optimistic. It’ll be a big battle. I’d settle for a couple of wins!

Here's the Joe McDonagh fixture list and dates (copied from the Laois page)

Wouldn't be too confident that Antrim would do well in this.

Any betting man would be advised to keep their money in their pocket if they're thinking of throwing a few bob in Antrim unless its to be involved in a relegation play off.
Westmeath, Laois and Kerry have turned Antrim over last season and the BIFFOS are an unknown quantity especially after their relegation to Div 2A and the Joe McDonagh.

Kerry looked decent against Westmeath too and looked unlucky enough. No easy games in this at all and I would be very, pleasantly!, surprised were we to get near winning it.

agreed. Its a very strong competition now when you look at all the teams in it.

Though id say the coverage given to it will be the bare minimum.

the reserve leagues a bit light this year i see. At a time when we want to give young lads games after they leave minor theres going to be periods of nothing for them at all. Pity to see that.

Is the North Antrim league running this year? i think South Antrim are running Hurling this year, maybe some SA teams playing in it instead as its a Monday night and means lads that dont get a run in the senior game or only 10-15 mins can then play a full reserve game on the monday night.

We'd hoped to put in a reserve team but then 5 lads took off to Australia for the year (all first 15'ers) so that left us short and couldn't commit to a reserve team, but when/if they arrive back and exams are out of the way we might try to arrange reserve "friendlies" prior to senior games when the numbers allow.
