I TOOK a deep breath outside Cusack Park on Saturday evening and tried to digest the implications of our draw with a game Westmeath side before I set off on the long road home.

Dealing with the facts, nothing has changed in our quest to remain in this year’s hurling championship. Nothing less than victory in the lion’s den next Saturday evening will keep us afloat, and we have been around long enough now to appreciate that there will be no mercy shown by our greatest rivals who need a result themselves to clear the woods.
