I would be very surprised if the game goes ahead, it's not even the pitch but the safety of the spectators that must be taken into account here. That drive for Armagh folk and even the Donegal fans who are quite rural are at risk trying to get to the game with snow and ice.

Call the game off and put if on either tomorrow night or Friday night, I suppose Sunday is ideal but the final is scheduled for Sunday and apparently the GAA have said they have no more free dates...?

Hard to see this going ahead tonight and the McKenna Cup being wrapped up by Sunday.

This is a semi final where the loser is likely to be the real winner.  Whoever goes through faces the prospect of a chinning if the Red Hard are in the mood.

Unfortunately Dublin dont play in the McKenna cup, Chinnings are subjective!  :P

You don't need to be Dublin to give you boys a chinning any time of the year

All square at half time. Armagh basically fielded their B team.

I see there was an Edward English from Mullaghbawn playing for Armagh tonight.

Not the kind of name you'd usually associate with South Armagh!

Correct. There are English's in mid/north Armagh but more into rugger or soccer.

We had very regal sounding names tonight: a James and a Charles too. No Billy, though.

Knew what was waiting in the final obviously.  Players can only take so many thrashings at the hands of Tyrone in their playing career!  The counselling therapy bill must be enormous at this point ;D

Neither team at anything like full strength. Donegal going well at midfield & up front but the full back line looked vulnerable under a high ball.

We'll know more next weekend after a trip to Killarney!!

Has this been switched to the Athletic Grounds from Celtic Park?  Tyrone GAA have this on twitter.
