Classy Crumlin to get job done

DUBLIN SHC GROUP B

CRUMLIN v BALLINTEER ST JOHN'S

(TODAY, PARNELL PARK, 4.30)

TWO clubs who continue to serve the timber and ash with distinction.

Ballinteer have been steadily rising. A team that play bright hurling.

The lush laneway of Marlay Park led them to the Promised Land. And last year's experience of the big-time is knowledge in the locker.

Crumlin reached the semi-final. In that game they trailed Cuala by nine points at half-time, but they were a different team in the second half.

That's the form they want to bring into this championship. Kevin Byrne is with the Dubs, and now one of Crumlin's proudest sons, Shane Martin, has been promoted to being a Dalo Disciple.

Ballinteer will be without their injured captain, Cormac O'Brien. The hour should hum along.

VERDICT: Crumlin
