Tipperary man Darren Gleeson saw his Antrim team breeze past Queen's in the Conor McGurk Cup semi-final at the Dub Arena to set up a tasty decider against Down on this Saturday, January 4. 

'’It’s going to be a good night for hurling, at 7 o’clock on Saturday,'’ says Gleeson.

'‘It’ll be a good test of where we are. We have six weeks done and we have a lot of new faces, which is good for Antrim.''

Antrim beat Queen's by 4-25 to 0-11 while Down beat Ulster University by 3-19 to 0-16.
