It's a bit of a take from Pierce Turner's Now on Heaven album but Oliver's on tune with this effort
...

Yet more crap from you sir: it's Now is Heaven from Pierce. D'oh!
You can't see the irony for the pedantry.

I don't know about this thread title "the battle for ulster's heart". Monaghan have already won that one. Even though most GAA afcionados are predicting a Tyrone victory, mostly their prediction is prefaced by a "I'd really love Monaghan to win but...."

Why would that be a good start? Losers are liked, winners are not. Simple as that. In the naughties that Tyrone team got dogs abuse from everyone, now looking back they get huge credit. That's what happens when you're successful. Something you'd have very limited experience with.

Exactly. Everyone wanted to Dublin to win in 2011. Everyone. Now nobody can stand the sight of them winning an all Ireland. People love an underdog, and if that means they don't want Tyrone to win then so be it. I won't lose sleep over it.

Correct that tyrone got dogs abuse but incorrect that winners are not liked. Dublin are winners at the moment and play an exciting brand of football so many people from other counties love watching them and donít begrudge their success. Kerry were also great champions and great to watch. When Derry, Down and Donegal were successful in the early 90s there was no begrudgery and they brought nothing but credit to Ulster. Galway were great champions in 98 and 01 and i never heard a negative word about them.

You should get out more, meaning you should get around the country more, you really should. I've rarely read such a piece of blinkered parochial pollyanna nonsense in all my life, but each to his own. :)

The Armagh opposition to Tyrone I can understand I think that its roughly at an equal level although probably more lobsided these days since Armagh are so shite

But the Derry hatred of Tyrone is ridiculous. Never heard a good Derry word about Tyrone... ever... not even in the 90s, this didnt start in 03 or even 95 its there as long as I remember, so Lenny harping on about Mickey Harte and puke football is nonsense, they hated us with equal enthusiasm when we were naive, light and skillful and took kicking from gulpins. Indeed they openly rejoiced in '96

I'm guessing the root cause is that anti Tyrone gene has now been interbred so thoroughly in their populace that its influence on the psyche has exploded exponentially.

Indeed the monaghan county board hosted Tyrone in Emyvale on their way home in 08! Maybe even 03 or 05.

I was at the 95 and 86 finals supporting Tyrone as were many Derry people. I donít dislike Tyrone, just Harteís cynical cheating version of Tyrone. Just a pity Eugene Mckenna didnít get another year in 03 because Iím certain heíd have won Sam also.
