4- the intercounty system doesn’t work. There are too many small counties who are making up the numbers and need to realign with other neighboring small counties to become viable competition to the big teams. Ireland is now an urbanized economy so the county system doesn’t work for small rural counties.

The Nordie answer to everything ;D
There isn't the population to fund and sustain a full time professional football and hurling system.
Any semi pro system is more likely to be in hurling where you have a small number of elite Counties already and the population in the Munster Counties might be able to sustain such.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Milltown has a point, Antrim is pretty urban and yet cannot sustain a decent team.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B
