Tony Kelly’s Ballyea out | Is Fennelly the top clubman in recent years? | Ann Downey sinking feeling

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney debate the big games of the weekend in Club Talk: Hurling — as Dunloy became kings of Antrim once again

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney debate the big games of the weekend in Club Talk: Hurling — as Dunloy became kings of Antrim once again.

Another weekend of drama, glory, and wrenched guts unfolded across the island.

Dunloy retained their Antrim crown, Ballyhale came from behind to eliminate The Village, and Tony Kelly’s Ballyea were sent packing in Clare.

Paul Carley had to double-job as manager of Danesfort and Bray Emmetts respectively, which meant leaving a relegation clash early to make a semi-final.
