Some day, Antrim hurling manager Darren Gleeson is going to hang up on a journalist who asks him how long the journey takes from his home in Portroe, Tipperary to wherever his Antrim team are training.

Thankfully, he's still at the mildly exasperated stage. The time spent driving is no imposition as they start life this week once again in the top flight of hurling, welcoming Clare to an empty Corrigan Park this Sunday.

"It's three and a half hours," he says. For the record.
