Good game for Kevin Martin to get up going.

Home game will surely be in Birr or even the faithful fields?

Hopefully the start of a better year.. (didn't want to say good year, that's too open).. better as in better than the previous few years.

Sounds very positive from Kevin Martin. Good to here of lads returning to the panel and removal of 2 extra defenders.

As Kevin said he wont have everyone available but I think it's necessary to get a win against Westmeath both home and away. Get a buzz in the camp for the league and a chance for younger bunch to lay down a marker for the year.

Anyone know anything about the panel or the recent challenge games they have played?

Fixture moved from SBP to Banagher...I take it Birr pitch lives up to its old failings?
