Munster blog launched

The Hook is delighted to annouce the arrival of Southern Fried - a Munster-centric blog reporting on all things hockey related down south.

Southern Fried was setup earlier this month ahead of what is one of the most pivotal seasons in Irish hockey, with the advent of the IHL.

The site is run by Alan Good, a top-class journalist who works as the hockey writer for the Irish Examiner, frequently producing the best feature articles on hockey available in the national newspapers.

Check out his article on the Setanta Sports Trophy, featuring interviews with Pakistan's Shakeel Abbassi and South Africa's Marsha Marescia on the state of Irish hockey or his interviews with John Jermyn and Iain Lewers.

He states the aim of the blog is to "provide up-do-date news and match reports for everything to do with Munster and Irish hockey, as well as including interviews with the game’s movers and shakers and features on the big questions within the sport."

two very well run websites. think findlater could perhaps even take a few pointers from the munster site!

- RSS Feeds
- Open new page when clicking on a link (so hookhockey stays open too!)
- IHL league tables

I think Steve may be technologically challenged. Can anyone help him out in layout and design of the website? Email him at..... and get on the Hook's team.

Yup, if anyone would like to help me to redesign the site into a website, I'd be more than happy as I have little to no expertise in this area.

Drop me a mail if you can help.

RSS feeds are available see the Atom link at the bottom of the page.
It would be great if you two could create a combined forum or else maybe link to the hockey forum or the 'Ireland' forum. So that people can discuss anything not covered by the blog.

The munster hockey blog uses wordpress with the 'Dusk' theme. It would be worth setting up an account with them and looking through a few of their themes to see if you like their set up. Very simple to use.

Munster News! - There is a rumour that both Belvedere & Catholic Institute have withdrawn their teams from the men's 1st Division. That leaves a 3 club 1st division with the 3 2nd teams making up the numbers for a 6 team league. This situation will continue as schoolboy & boys hockey in Munster has been declining for years.
