Despite all of the positive indicators of recent years – under-21s reaching last year’s All-Ireland and Loughgeil winning the club two years ago at senior county level – Antrim’s fortunes have been on the slide since reaching an All-Ireland quarter-final four years ago. Have emerged from the round robin in Leinster but hard to see a path from there.
