Would a club Team from a strong county like Tyrone Dublin Kerry mayo beat the weaker intercounty teams in bottom half division 4 just say.

Would suspect so with Dublin, but not necessarily the other teams. Kerry very much dominated by divisional teams. Mayo, not so sure anymore. Kilcoo, Glen probably would.

I remember when I was playing we would regularly play county senior and u21 teams. Would regularly have played the likes of Monaghan, Louth and the like. We drew with Kildare one year when they were under Micko and they had a strong team out that day, Glen Ryan, Rainbow, Martin Lynch, Buckley and a few others. They were in pre-season and we were at full tilt but that was round the time they made the AI final so we were well chuffed. Iíd suspect Corofin were doing that as well at their peak.

Is Strabane a soccer town ?

Of the four main towns in Tyrone, Strabane would likely be regarded by most in the county as definitely being more strongly influenced by soccer than Gaelic games.


Over 13,000 people (2011), over 90% Nationalist/Catholic background, 55% with Irish identity only.
Tyrone Co Board needs to up their game there I would think.
Westport was pretty soccer orientated but has been turned around to become Mayowestros SF Champions.
Would Newry be vastly different. Should Down GAA not be concentrating efforts there. Derry city would've been mentioned similarly

Newry is a bit of a mess. At least one of their clubs should be competing at senior level given the population.

lol.

Interesting question, I reckon the Cross team in itís heyday would have beaten a fair few county teams. Some of the top Dublin teams today would surely beat a lot of the lower divison 3/4 teams, not too many teams would fare well against a fit Mannion and Walsh.

I noticed bunninadden were 109 years between their first and second (last) championship. In Roscommon, Boyle, had they beaten Strokestown I think would have been 95 since their last...

i wonder was there any clubs waiting longer between club championship wins than Bunninadden...

They had the longest wait. This info thanks to GAA stats on twitter




thanks

just on club teams playing intercounty, St Brigids Roscommon played a few,  I seen them hammer Carlow around 2012/3

Half of Newry is in Armagh geographically  donít forget ;). Newry city itself would be dominated by soccer, pints and cocaine these days mostly so doesnít leave much time for the GAA. Bosco and Shamrocks would traditionally have fairly good underage teams but the stereotypical town problem of not being able to get them through to senior level applies

True that - the Armagh half only has one club though. Newry doesnít suffer anything other towns of a similar size suffer from, so no real excuse.

Teams like Kilmacud probably would beat some. But clubs like that aren't normal clubs they are funded and ran like county teams with a massive membership.

If a county team is at Championship level it will beat the club team at its championship level, teams like Cross could beat a poor county team but only this time of year when the county team is in preseason
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Truth hurts

Ballyholland relegated to div 2 so them and Shamrocks will be a good derby next year. But Newry should get more divison 1 clubs but i expect Ballyholland to get back up soon as they are getting serious numbers at underage .

Bosco are alway great at underage but they cannot get them through, very sad that.

Funny thing about that Bunninadden win is that the team they beat with a last gasp goal, Coolera, would themselves have ended a 93 year wait had they held on. Their time eventually came in 2005. For a small club that Bunninadden were able to compete and win a senior title was fair going. Those days when other teams actually won our county title were rather nice looking back on it now.

On the hurling side Bruree in Limerick had a gap of 113 years between their two wins when they won it around 2005/6.

I actually don't think they would. Having gone to Div4 matches this yr for first time ever the standard is higher than you might expect.

In Galway there is a top 4

25  Tuam Shtars
21 Corofin
20 St Grellans Ballinasloe
15 Dunmore McHales

Dunmore, Tuam and St Grellans would have provided most of the All Ireland winners pre 1998. Tuam, Dunmore and Corofin are in north Galway.

St Grellans last county title was in 1980. Tuam's last win was in 1994.
Dunmore's was in 1983. Dunmore would be associated with the Donnellans who have 3 generations of all Ireland medals

Corofin emerged as a force in 1998 when they won the club all Ireland. Since then they have won around 15 county titles.

Is it population/economic issues that has moved the strong football centre away from the old North Galway strongholds?
