100% on the officials. The Club Champions should not be punished because the officials made a slight error on the day. Ireland didn't get a replay with France after Henry's handball.

KC get away with this without sanction, and through the GAA's wilful blindness in following their own rules, then there is absolutely no deterrent on future transgressions -- ah sure, what's the worst could happen.

Crossmaglen vs Ballybay on RTE this Saturday.

Gowna vs Enniskillen Gaels rearranged the following weekend to the Saturday night I wonder is this due to RTE coverage also.

Ballybay always remind me of this

Well done the over 40s, with O'Neill, Gormley, et al., still bossing it -- showing the Seniors how to retain an All-Ireland title!  ;)

Are Armagh and Derry the real thing or will Tyrone walk all over them ?
It's a long way to Christmas

I think Derry and Armagh will remain competitive in Ulster. Tyrone, can't be as bad as this year, but unless they improve their panel from what it was this year, they will not walk over anyone. They could slide back even more.

Hard to know what Monaghan/Donegal will be like given new management coming in and probably new playing personnel. Will Murphy still be there for Donegal?

Antrim improved, but still not a threat IMO.
Cavan might surprise a few next year with their run in the Tealteann cup this year.
Down - can't see them doing much, but who know.

Compare to other provinces, we're probably still most competitive where realistically we have at least 4 teams in with a real chance of winning the provincial.
On the all Ireland stage, we have 5 teams in the top 10 in the country, so in general I'd say compared to other provinces we are very strong. However, none of those 5 teams would be favourites for an AI - Kerry, Dublin, Galway all would be ahead of them.

For what it's worth, my opinion on to 10 teams in order are:

Kerry
Dublin
Galway
Derry
Armagh
Mayo
Donegal
Monaghan
Tyrone
Roscommon


**Getting ready for the outrage at some of the ratings  ;D

Haven't felt this underrated since... 2021! Keep 'er lit!  :D

Dermot McNicholl. Played minor for 5 years.

He played in five consecutive MacRory Cup finals (1980–1984), winning four of them. He was captain for the last two. (Only one of two men to do that, Greg Blaney's father, Sean, was the other one) He was only in third year when playing on his first MacRory team. In 1980 and 1984 he was runner-up in the Hogan Cup to Carmelite College, Moate and St. Jarlath's College, Tuam respectively.

He won 3 Ulster Minor Football Championships ('80, '81, '83), played in the All-Ireland final each of the three times - winning in '83, as captain.

He won Ulster U-21 in '83, but lost the AI U21 after a replay.

As an aside, though he wasn't still a minor (bad birthday), he won an all star (still youngest ever), played senior inter county and represented Ireland in the International Rules, while still at school.

He was (pre-)equalled as the youngest All-Star by another Derry man, ironically enough, Gerry Mc Elhinney.

We definitely have an issue with defending the AI Crown, however, Ulster is without question the most difficult province from which to emerge intact, and that's a whole different minefield to be negotiated each year regardless.
