Clare’s senior hurling boss is refusing to underestimate the threat Antrim will pose to the Banner in Sunday’s opening round of the Allianz National Hurling League.
Brian Lohan’s side will make the trip to Belfast in 48 hours’ time for their Division 1B opener, the first of five games in six weekends.
The Clare team is set to be a strong one, with John Conlon in line for his first senior start in over a year after overcoming a cruciate ligament injury.
Antrim won the Joe McDonagh cup and were promoted up to Division 1 after winning 2A last year.
Lohan insists the Ulster side shouldn’t be taken lightly on Sunday.
