What can we anticipate?
DUBLIN encounter the new NHL effort under the stewardship of fresh manager Mattie Kenny.
The new gaffer had an impressive start to his tenure – winning three matches on the bounce from the Walsh Cup prior defeat to Wexford from the semi-final.
Kenny will expect to build some promising groundwork laid down by ex-boss Pat Gilroy in last summer’s Championship and will be eyeing a much better end in 1B than a year’s fourth location.
Meanwhile, the Division 1B new boys Carlow are flying high under director Colm Bonnar.
