If New York win v Leitrim they will travel to play Roscommon in Hyde Park. The game is scheduled for a Saturday to allow the New York players a enough time to be back for work.

Good old Connacht where a provincial final place can be obtained by beating New York or Leitrim in your own pitch.
Thats the luck of the draw. Mayo 2012 only had to beat Leitrim at home to reach the final and then played Sligo in the final. Roscommon if they reach the final and a if needs to be used as they only beat New York by 1 point in their last meeting will likely play Mayo in the Connacht final a top 3 side and the game would be played in MacHale Park.

AZ the Connacht Council were thinking of all our exiles most of whom traditionally came from Connacht when they extended an invitation to NY to play in Connacht.
Fair play to them putting themselves to the inconvenience of having to spend a week in NY every year.

Total nonsense and should be ended forthwith.
Mind you I heard that they will travel if they win as all their squad is legally in the US.
Also heard 2 Rossies playing for NY this year.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

You’re not going very far when you’re being lit up for 28 points so I wouldn’t get too worried about your plight if I were you.

No idea what gibberish you are talking but can you confirm if my original statement was fact or not.

Possibly he's on about conceding 4-16 the last day.

Conceding 28 points is hardly a stick to beat someone when we conceded 24 points in the same game!  ::)

The Ros team of the 70s had  to beat both Galway and Mayo every year they won their 4 in a row, so does not always come easy. Anyway, the current Mayo and Galway team would beat any team in Ulster in championship football and Cavan would not beat any of the top 3 in Connacht, so be thankful you are in Ulster where at least you have a chance of some silverware. And would love to see ye do it.

Too much time on your hands.
Don't Provincial Finals go to replays?
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

I like your fantasy about Cavan, despite us losing the Ulster final. I think it is more likely we will get well beaten by Donegal 1st day out.

My point was it never comes as easy in Ulster as beating a team of the calibre of Leitrim gets you into a final. I know sometimes it comes hard in Connacht for sure but it just outlines t he unfairness of the championship. Cavan will need to be at their peak to play preliminary round in Ulster. Roscommon could be in 2nd gear and beat Leitrim/New York and then can sit and watch Mayo/Galway kick lumps out of eachother. Used to be like that in Munster too but obviously standard of Clare and Tipp is much better these days.

Why aren't ye agitating to either abolish the Ulster Championship or else disconnect the Provincials from the All Irelands???
Or would that leave ye with no spuds on th'oul showlders ?  ;)
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.
