* Finally a belated happy 75th birthday to none other than Dick Looby. Dick celebrated this great occasion in style last week. He without doubt is one of our young of mind forward thinkers in the world of hurling and shows an appetite for the game that can only put us all to shame. He still takes time to follow the fortunes of the young and not so young hurlers. But most of all he is a great listening ear and the dispenser of great advice. I tried to get something on you Dick but nobody was talking! A testimony indeed. Happy birthday sir!
