Someone says on the Armagh fans forum that crossmaglen can represent Armagh in the junior if their senior team lose the senior final… I presume this is ballex?

Was always under the impression that 'B' or 'Seconds' teams could not participate in provincial competition.

Bollix. Has to be first team.

Ulster mad. Donegal are putting their senior hurling champions in junior even though all other counties have either 2 or 3 reps(bar Cavan). County boards be up to no good for glory.

I imagine Derry intermediate football will be Steelstown(maybe Greenlough) and junior Desertmartin

There's  tyrone team in the junior hurling Fear - presumably that's their intermediate champions? (Yes you're not from tyrone but you are as likely to know as anyone lol)

Greenlough for me Fear, and I'd say they'll give Ulster a fair rattle, as Desertmartin might do in Junior

Yeah but they have another team in intermediate as well. Senior champs in Tyrone go intermediate, beaten senior semi finalists go to county junior and then ulster junior. Donegal only give 1 team a chance in ulster and their senior champs(probably setanta are far too strong for junior)

Yep its hard to call but Steelstown have never won a county championship at intermediate and have an embarrassment of riches, im thinking that hunger might get them through

I was wondering. Best in Tyrone aren't far away off being division one in antrim though the state of the leagues with covid etc scuppered that.

That was me said that. Just repeating what I’ve been told. Thought it odd myself but time will tell. Might be immaterial anyway was Belleeks are likely to win.

You could be right, they have serious footballers in all sectors on the pitch. If Steelstown do win it definitely won't be a big shock but they'll have earned it if they do.

Tyrone have had a representative in the Ulster club IHC ever since the Ulster Council started the competition, but no Tyrone club has yet won it. The winners of the Tyrone IHC or JHC (its name has varied, generally it's the second rung club hurling competition) usually enter the Ulster club JHC, though when Naomh Colum Cille won it about a decade ago (and reach an All-Ireland final) they were locked out of competing in it for a few years even when they won the Tyrone IHC/JHC afterwards - that meant another Tyrone team had to take their place, usually the beaten Tyrone IHC/JHC finalist.

As for the query on Crossmaglen - the answer is no. The only teams allowed to enter the provincial & All-Ireland club championships are club first teams, no reserve/second/third etc. teams of a club and no amalgamations/divisional sides (as is also the case in the senior club championship concerning the likes of Kerry & Cork). In Tyrone, if Errigal Ciaran's or Coalisland's third team were to win the county JFC, the next highest finishing junior championship team would represent Tyrone in Ulster. Different in ladies football (and camogie too, I think) - Bredagh's second team is competing in the Ulster ladies club JFC after winning the Down JFC title.
