It's fair to say that Davy Fitzgerald is not a fan of the current Allianz Hurling Leagues structure.

Shortly after guiding the Banner County back to Division 1A, Davy Fitz told RTÉ Radio 1's Sunday Sport that it is time for change.

"I'd love to see more (teams) in Division 1A. I think we need to do it. It's a no-brainer.

"We've won and we've gone up but I would encourage them to really look at that. Let's have more teams up there. I really believe we should."

As regards their 1-19 to 0-18 local derby victory, the Banner boss said: "To perform in our own house in Ennis was very important today.

"We did what we had to do. I'd be happy with the blocking and tackling.

"They tried to do the right things all the time and held possession well at times. We've a few things to work on.

"I don't think our enthusiasm over the last two years has been the same. We need to work really hard and that's one thing I'd like to see us getting back to.

"We're far from the finished article. I don't think we're near the top three or four teams in 1A. But we've two or three months now to work on that.

"The championship is what counts and that's what we all have to get ready for."
