We start at home to Monaghan on a Saturday night and have further home games against Donegal and Louth. Seems like four of our games will be played under lights. I'm happy enough with that, and reasonably confident about our chances for the division. Four away games isn't ideal but that's balanced out by having two of the toughest teams, Donegal and Monaghan, at home. It seems like a level enough playing field in Div 2. Armagh v Down on a Friday night will be a humdinger, expect them to be much stronger this year.
