Crossmaglen hasn't got 1.4 million people.
Seriously though it certainly hasn't got 2.6 times the population of the next biggest club or 10/12 times the population of the average club in Co Armagh.

Cross has about the average population for an Armagh club and is in a parish with 3 other clubs.
Cross' is better compared to Kilkenny, who wear similar kit, who haven't a great population advantage.

Why are cross so successful tho?
what was the pre hernan history of Cross . were they always dominant ?

Cross' had more Armagh championships than anyone else even before their modern run, they generally won 3 or 4 each decade, but in the 1950s Harps were dominant and Clan na nGael in the 70s.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Doesn't matter who is in charge , there are conveyer belts of special groups of players for the next ten years , Dublin will keep winning all Ireland's for the forseeable . The most interesting aspect is going to be when do Dublin eventually admit something will have to be done to even up the score
If Pillar Caffrey or Tommy 'Tom' Car were in charge things might be different.
