Small Ball to spark the big debate at HQ
THE sliotar will be flying around the corridors of Parnell Park tonight.
It's the AGM of the Friends of Dublin Hurling (7.30pm).
"We'd love people to come along and air their views on Dublin hurling," says Michael O'Grady.
"We welcome debate and new ideas."
On Saturday, the O'Grady Express is heading for the Cusack Cauldron as Dublin tackle Clare in Division 1A of the Allianz Hurling League.
The FODH buses leave Connolly Station (10.30am) and Rathcoole (11.am).
The return fare is 10 Euro for adults and five Euro for juveniles. For non-members, add a fiver.
To book a seat, text your name and pick up point before noon on Thursday to 087-2331983.
You can sign up as an FODH member on the bus or on-line www.fodh.ie
Or at Parnell Park on March 22nd for the Galway game.
Those who sign up in March will enter a draw for two tickets for the NHL quarter-final on March 29th.

Fleece jackets cost 50 Euro. You can order a jacket by sending money and size details to Tom O'Donnell, GAA Games Office, St Vincent's CBS, Glasnevin, no later than March 22nd.
