Dublin expect tall test against Banner
IT was a brisk start to business for the new-look Dubs. Next Sunday, they'll travel to Clare for their second game in Division 1 of the National League.
The team looked fit as they overcame Derry. And they were as fresh as the icy wind that blew down from Bray Head.
Clare lost in Cork in their opening assignment. Chloe Morey impressed. They gave Cork a decent run. Last season, Clare defeated Cork in the semi-final to reach the Division 1 League final, so they will offer a formidable challenge to the Dubs.
Dublin's goal against Derry came from Siobhan Kehoe. Siobhan is a gold bar.
Dublin's hard work since Christmas was there for all to see.
The presence of Sile Nic Coitir between the sticks adds assurance to the experienced rearguard.
Like Denis Murphy and Colum King before him, the new manager, Shane O'Brien, will be looking for Dublin to be competitive against the Banner.
For Shane and his celebrated management team, it's one puck at a time. If Dublin leave Clare with a result, they'll feel as tall as the Cliffs of Moher.
