Hi lads,
New to the forum,
Big into antrim hurling,

Excited for this year, realistically it will be tough to win many games this year, but if we can compete, nick a few games and hopefully we can stay in div 1 and the leinster championship and build from there.
Final league game at home to Laois will be a biggee

Welcome to the forum Tormund just watch out for MR2 heís a wind up merchant 😄😄😄

It was nice to be at a hurling match last night in lovely Spring / Summer weather, a senior hurling match in south Belfast where the Naomh Brid keeper was 35 years older than the youngest player. That's what you call a blend of youth and experience :)

It was well refereed too!

Seen that on Twitter, would Naomh brid be boys from other clubs moving to Belfast or a lot of their young lads coming from their brid Og?

From what I could tell mostly lads have come through juvenile ranks, and senior footballers who had previously hurled as juveniles, plus the American guest / former ice hockey player.

Interesting lineup for the Clare game. Walsh in fb is an interesting one and Campbell to hb to get McManus in midfield. McMullan from loughgiel into corner back is a change too. That aside much the same as last year. It looks a strong lineup though but like any division one game itís a big task.

Campbell Burke masked
  McManus molloy

The bookies say we are 10 points off Clare. Was it tactics dropping Mattie or is he injured?

Clare last season were a one man band, they are better than that and wonít get away with that this year (commentators scud)
