Antrim staring down the barrel of a gun thumbnailAntrimís hurlers defeat by Limerick means they face a relegation play-off against Offaly in their next game.

ANTRIM.....................................0-13 LIMERICK.................................3-21

WHO would want the job of managing the Antrim Senior Hurling team after they notched up their fourth defeat in the National League?
Four brave souls have done so and while the standard in performances has improved dramatically since competing in Division One, the results say it all.
Galway, Laois, Dublin and now Limerick have inflicted great pain and it looks very likely that Antrim will find themselves staring down the barrel of a gun in a relegation play-off situation with survival at this level hanging by a single thread.
They simply were no match for a slick moving Limerick side in Cushendall as the Saffrons fell to yet another defeat.
In the other three defeats there were crumbs of comfort for the Saffron followers as Antrim had come close to their opponents, but this time out there was a wide gulf in standards at the home team chased shadows for most of the game against the impressive visitors.
