Sligo haven't met these yet:

Ulster - Antrim, Fermanagh, Monaghan
Leinster - Louth, Meath, Offaly, Laois, Wexford
Munster - Limerick, Waterford

Oddly in the league we've played every team bar Cork, but have met them twice in Championship.
That's our updated list I think.

For Mayo, the counties we have yet to play in championship are:

Ulster
Antrim
Monaghan


I may have to plead old age on this one, but off the top of my head, I don't recall Armagh playing Mayo in the Championship.

Taken a few minutes to look through the record books to see whom Tyrone have yet to play in Senior Championship football - namely Carlow, Clare, Kilkenny, Wicklow & Waterford plus London & New York.

The following is a list of counties Tyrone have faced at least once in a championship game with the round and date of the last time they played.

Ulster

Antrim - Ulster Quarter Final, 23 May 2010
Armagh - All-Ireland Quarter Final, 5 August 2017
Cavan - Ulster Semi Final Replay, 3 July 2016
Derry - Ulster Quarter Final, 28 May 2017
Donegal - Ulster Semi Final, 18 June 2017
Down - Ulster Final, 16 July 2017
Fermanagh - Ulster Quarter Final, 20 May 2007
Monaghan - Ulster Quarter Final, 20 May 2018

Leinster

Carlow - Never Met (No record of meeting in NFL)
Dublin - All-Ireland Semi Final, 27 August 2017
Kildare - All-Ireland Round 3, 20 July 2013
Kilkenny - Never Met (Last NFL meeting 1992/93, Group C)
Laois - All-Ireland Round 2, 8 July 2006
Longford - All-Ireland Round 2, 9 July 2011
Louth - All-Ireland Round 1, 28 June 2014
Meath - All-Ireland Round 2, 11 July 2015
Offaly - All-Ireland Round 1, 29 June 2013
Westmeath - All-Ireland Round 2, 26 July 2008
Wexford - All-Ireland Semi Final, 31 August 2008
Wicklow - Never Met (Last NFL meeting 1992/93, Group C)

Connaught Connacht

Galway - All-Ireland Round 3, 17 July 2004
Leitrim - All-Ireland Round 2, 29 June 2002
Mayo - All-Ireland Quarter Final, 6 August 2016
Roscommon - All-Ireland Round 2, 6 July 2013
Sligo - All-Ireland Round 4, 1 August 2015

Munster

Clare - Never Met (Last NFL meeting 1995/96, Division 1)
Cork - All-Ireland Semi Final, 23 August 2009
Kerry - All-Ireland Semi Final, 23 August 2015
Limerick - All-Ireland Round 1, 28 June 2015
Tipperary - All-Ireland Round 3, 18 July 2015
Waterford - Never Met (No record of meeting in NFL)

Outside Ireland

London - Never Met (No record of meeting in NFL)
New York - Never Met (No record of meeting in NFL)


From that list, the longest wait for a championship rematch is against Leitrim (2002) followed a little surprisingly by Galway (2004) and then Laois (2006) in which a Mick O'Dwyer managed Laois team beat Tyrone (Tyrone had defeated Leitrim & Galway in the games mentioned). The longest wait for a rematch against an Ulster team is Fermanagh (2007) and is the only county in the province that Tyrone has not faced in a championship game in the 2010's.

Wouldn't have minded playing Leitrim or Waterford this year...


Westmeath - Home of the Christy Ring Cup...

For Mayo, the counties we have yet to play in championship are:

Munster
Waterford

Ulster
Antrim
Monaghan

Leinster
Wicklow
Carlow
Kilkenny

There's a good chance one of these counties will be dropping off this list in a couple of weeks time.

Hopefully we'll scratch that Carlow itch. And a good chance we'll be meeting Monaghan in the Super 8s
