Who would be strong in each of these competitions?
Rock have serious experience at Junior level in the past and should be there or thereabouts. Donegal teams have come good at Junior in recent times. Would Buncrana be able to make an impact?
Intermediate seems quite strong this year. Could make a case for most of the teams left in it.

Galbally from Tyrone shouldn't be far away from Ulster but it will depend on how hard they have celebrated. They lost their first game all year at the weekend there so who knows.

Galbally probably favourites for Intermediate but Kinawley would be my dark horses.  Think Buncrana play in a high enough division in Donegal, so they prob strong enough for Junior?  Rock will be there or thereabouts.  What is it with Rock anyway?  Always seem to move between Junior and Intermediate.

They are a small club, they have a small enough pick - they also don't try a leg when they get to Intermediate. It'll be the same this year. But it wasn't that long ago they lost a play off to go to Senior Football either.

I'd hazard a guess that Magheracloone will do quite well in Intermediate. After a long senior stint they were relegated last year, but most thought they were too good for intermediate, and so it turned out as they won the championship and finished top of the league. They were only in the senior county final a couple of years ago so it was surprising to see them down last year. I'd say they'd be one of the better and more experienced teams in the Ulster intermediate.

St Nauls have a couple of county men, but no first choice at that level. Brendan McCole played the league last year when Neil McGee was out, but Mickey Newman gave him a harsh lesson in the Div 2 final and that was more or less it for the season.

Young Mogan impressed greatly on county minor and U-21 teams and is hopefully one for the future.

Stephen Griffin was in and around the senior squad for a number of seasons, but with the likes of Murphy, McFadden, McBrearty etc ahead of him, he never got much of a look in. Scored a goal against Cork in the 2009 AI quarter final (they hammered us, but Murphy, at 18 or 19, was immense) and he once got an equalizing point in the last minute of a league game down in Castlebar.

Well obviously that’s not true. Bit of an urban myth that one in Tyrone circles.

They get relegated every single time they go up. I don't know what more evidence is required on that one really to be honest with you.

No you literally said they don’t try a leg when they go up. They’ve been beat in a few relegation play offs the last few years they’ve been promoted. What do they say at the start of the year here lads we’ll get relegated this year? 6th smallest club in Tyrone in terms of members. As usual it’s easy to criticise on this board. They’re doing alright.

Ryan Bradley former county midfielder is Buncrana, is he playing? What about the jigger O’connor - didn’t he start the 2014 all Ireland final?

League and championship seperate in Cavan. They got promoted in league a couple months ago. Last year promoted from division 3 to 2 and lost junior final. This year 2 to 1 and now up to intermediate.

How can a team in Div. 1 play in a Junior championship??

Surely that's totall unfair? - would Cavan clubs not to pissed off at that?
