Yes to all above. Good selection in my opinion. A promising start.

Lets hope the players they want go in now.

Very good and strong mgt team. They'll get everyone back this year. No one is going to want to miss out on the next 3 years with this mgt team.

Everyone is a strong statement! They might not want everyone and inter county is a huge commitment and some lads might not see themselves given that to mgt team.

Prime example being Conor Doughan. One of the best hurlers in the county. It's surely still a coin toss at present for himself and team mgt.

Feckin Aughrim 🙄

Also, any provisional dates for these fixtures? I presume June-July?
Good Luck

I’d imagine fixtures are May/June. Aren’t the finals played early June?

I'm actually disappointed with the fixtures. Purely from a personal point of view. Was quite happy when I seen the group we were in, but was really hoping for an away trip to Sligo and Derry. And hopefully make a weekend of it. But alas home fixtures for both of these.

A trip to Aughrim just isn't as appealing for a weekend.

Oh well.

I heard in OCP yesterday Michael Fennelley was in contact with players and training game 1st November in Faithful Fields. Be interesting to hear whom he called in.

Must have missed Michael's call, I'd fancy me chances against Sligo!!

More interest in the League meself, can anyone post up who is in our division please?

Hopefully lads do commit fully for this season, all joking aside, there is pressure on to come out of this division in the first go in order to build a bit of momentum behind the management team. And hitting the ground running in the league will be crucial.
