Stephen Kane I think it is. Paul Devlin also from Kilcoo should be in the
panel I think.

Down need a good league campaign before a difficult Ulster Championship
opener v Tyrone.

The McKenna Cup will be again used to blood new players.Any others
any one thinks should be given a chance in the Mc Kenna Cup?

I think Darragh O'Hanlon should be in the squad along with Paul Devlin, Ryan Johnson and Niall McAvoy. I'm not from Kilcoo but those lads are winners. O'Hanlon has nerves of steel. He can be relied on to come up with the big plays when it's needed most and when games are tight. Ciaran McCartan from Warrenpoint is another lad who should be straight in there. Great engine, good brain and gives everything.

Good to hear that Benny's giving it another year. Along with some new lads, especially Kilcoo's best and Peter Fitzpatrick returning, 2014 will be better.

Delighted for Stephen Kane. He should be pushing Brendan McVeigh through the paces as he has not had any competition since he took the shirt. Delighted for Benny as well, hopefully he will win an Ulster Title in his 15th year

Paul Kelly from Dromara could be a great addition to the squad when he finishes with his education over in Liverpool. Best player in Britain outside Hope and JMU

Darren O'Hagan back in defence this year. Keep the good news coming! An Dún abú!

an injury free Dan Gordon would be another big boost

Down Squad looks strong this year with those in the McKenna cup squad plus those not it( Benny et al) and the University players. Hopefully it will be a good year.

5 East down players in McKenna cup squad, something not right !!!

Costello, Maginn and Savage are all east Down players who are in the QUB squad instead, while Gordon is recovering from a long-term injury and there will probably be at least three additions from Kilcoo when the league comes around. No need to worry about imbalance at this stage of the season.

Mourne rising hit the nail on the head and why worry where they are from

Spot on Dufferman , who cares where there from as long as he is good enough to wear the Down jersey

Any time this subject is brought up. 9 times out of ten it is by someone from East Down,

I could name at least a half dozen players from South Down who I think should be on the panel , but we don't keep banging on about it,

I have never counted how many from South or East , and to be very honest I don't care , but im sure its pretty even
