PROMOTION IS THE big carrot on offer from Division 1B of the Allianz Hurling League.

Can Galway make it back to the top flight after losing last year’s relegation play-off to Cork?

Or will Limerick finally clamber out of the second tier, in what will be their seventh season there?

Or perhaps Davy Fitzgerald can work the oracle in Wexford, and repeat his 2016 heroics with Clare by sealing promotion?

Kerry, Laois and Offaly are also in the Division 1B mix and it promises to be competitive fare across five rounds.

All three first round matches are down for decision at 2pm next Sunday, as Offaly host Galway in Tullamore, Kerry entertain Laois at Austin Stack Park in Tralee, and Wexford welcome Limerick to Innovate Wexford Park, in what’s the tie of the day in the pool.

The top two will battle it out for promotion from Division 1B but we want to know who’ll be sitting pretty at the head of affairs after five games.

Poll Results:

Galway (2494)
Limerick (915)
Wexford (722)
Kerry (250)
Offaly (89)
Laois (75)
