Moycullen look like a very good side and the AI series is going to be very competitive this year if the weekends matches are anything to go by. Any of the provinces could provide this years winner based on what I've seen to date. What is the story with their jerseys though, they look like something from the early 2000's. Are they retro jerseys or are funds just tight around Moycullen?

They've always had a green jersey with a white sash as long as I can remember anyway.

Its moreso the collared jersey, you don't see too many of them these days.

I'd say Páirc Seán will be like a bog tomorrow which won't help Doms.
Still they should be winning it all the same.

Sure Cavan senior champs have never won ulster senior, should we be let send our senior champs into ulster intermediate competition?

Not remotely a like for like comparison. Cavan seniors won the Anglo Celt recently. Sligo senior hurlers wouldn’t get within 50 points of Galway.

Stayed in Easkey for the first time a couple of months ago. A small village, achievement in itself that they have the numbers for dual teams.

They don't have numbers for 2 teams, they all play both and as a result are f**king up what was once a football stronghold in Sligo. I know the place well.

Their footballers are doing about as well as they should be, lost the intermediate final to a stronger team who really ought to have been in senior by now. Been intermediate contenders the last couple of years and might do it next year given the team coming down from senior are in decline. Pretty sure that the hurlers draw from a neighbouring club also.

It's long established in Connacht like it is in Ulster that the county champions in the weaker hurling counties compete in the intermediate or junior grades. One Sligo team picked off a few titles back aroun a decade ago but it's been a while since they won one. The Galway junior reps are never particularly good for that county's general standard anyway.

Yeah Galway junior reps not great most of the time.
Wouldn’t be too au fait with the hurling club scene but I think there is a huge number of teams between senior and intermediate above them which possibly explains why junior winners arent great.
