Gaelic Echo, April 1956

In hurling, St. Finbarr’s (Coventry) are the present champions, but if Croke’s and Emerald Isle, both Birmingham teams, can produce the form they showed last year, I am of the opinion that one of them can bring the title back to the city…John Mitchel’s, champions of former years, may be a surprise packet.

Warwickshire Gaels can certainly look forward to some thrilling epics in the coming season and there is every reason to expect that the Warwickshire Board will have an even more successful year than last, which was regarded as the most outstanding in its history.
