Fermanagh hurling manager Joe Baldwin was back on the sideline yesterday, just three weeks after suffering a stroke.
In a brilliant interview with Eoin Sheahan of Off The Ball after the Erne County's 1-26 to 1-5 Allianz Hurling League victory over Leitrim in Ballinamore, the Coleraine man revealed how doctors discovered a small blood clot at the back of his head after he began to slur his speech in work.
"Maybe I shouldn't have been here today, but hurling is in your blood and it's the best place I wanted to be today," he said.

Plan was to learn a bit more about hurling in both counties, but it turned out @FermanaghGAA manager Joe Baldwin has a pretty incredible story.@offtheball pic.twitter.com/dqwxOyZhR0
