Neil meets a local lad on the All Star tour in the United Arab Emirates

While the rest of the Antrim hurlers are getting ready to head off to ice cold Navan for the start of the Kehoe Cup tomorrow against Meath, Neil McManus is enjoying the sunshine during the PwC All Star Hurling Tour 2019 All Star game at Zayed Sport City in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Neil was helping out with a training session with some of the young ex pats when he bumped into Daithi Walsh whose mother is from Dunloy, the same village as Neil’s wife Aileen. Daithi showed off his skills for the Ruairi Og man and had his pic taken with the Antrim star but when ask for a few tips on how the Ruairis could beat the Cuchullains in next season’s championship Daithi was remaining tight lipped.

Many thanks to Ray McManus of Sportsfile for the pics
