Such is the challenge, winning Tyrone means more to the clubs involved than winning Ulster, its bonus territory, not overly arsed

Whereas Cross and others flipped that paradigm due to their local dominance, Armagh meant nothing, only a starter for the main course

In Tyrone the main course in the Senior champ, Ulster is desert, take it or leave it

Not true. Mullaghbawn won the county championship in 1995, but  they were hardly dominating the club scene in Armagh. It was their first title in 30 odd years.

Cross won the county 1996, but hadnít been in a final for 10 years, and then won Ulster dnd the All Ireland at the first attempt. But they werent  exactly dominating armagh before 1996.

When no team has done any damage in Ulster for 25 odd years, I suppose thatís the easy way to justify it; as in, weíre so exhausted and have put so much into it, weíre not really that bothered about itÖÖuntil Trillick or errigal actually do win it and then the narrative will change.

Not just in 25 years, Errigal Ciaran were the exception rather than the rule in Ulster. They had a great group players, with Canavan at his peak. The worst thing we ever did was beat them in the Kildress Gold Watch tournament as they got a bee in their bonnet about us ;D

Tyrone clubs have never counted at senior level in Ulster and thatís a simple fact. They are all around the same level of quality, which is generally just a bit above Intermediate level, and thatís why they never push on.

So we could say the same for every senior club in Armagh as well then, or Fermanagh or Cavan? Cross arrogance slipping out there BCB

2 other Armagh clubs have won Ulster historically, Mullaghbawn and Clan na Gael. Neither Cavan nor Fermanagh clubs have won it therefore they havenít made any impression. Thatís not to say there havenít been good teams, Enniskillen Gaels were very strong and probably should have won at least 1, but they didnít. Mullahorn, Gowna, Cavan Gaels all decent but not top level. Simple facts.

@tiempo Omagh didnít rank us but Iím sure theyíre proud of their Beating Cross in the Championship CupÖ.

Sure the Fermanagh club team tanked the Tyrone Champions, the best clubs in Ireland are not in Tyrone
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

That Cross and that Mullaghbawn team were both something else, serious, serious teams. Even at their peak Cross rarely breezed through Armagh, Mullaghbawn, Dromintee Pearse Ogís etc always gave them tough games. (I know they did blitz a few finals especially against the Harps and the Nab within the last 10 years)
