Going to be interesting watching out for the McKenna Cup games tomorrow. Any Tyrone win will likely see us top the group and into the semis, unless they somehow overturn a 26 point differential to us. Who knows how they'll play though, if they're still on holiday mode, or if they're annoyed by that result on Tuesday night. They should be up for Armagh anyway. Anyway, it would be great for the lads to get another game before the league to really see where we are.

Looks like Monaghan are already through, the winner of Donegal and Antrim will go through as group winner there, and likely Derry if they beat Fermanagh. So it'll be a tough semi if things do swing our way with Tyrone beating Armagh, so bring it on. A good tough game is what's wanted before we visit Leitrim.

They might give a toss about losing to Armagh in their own patch as returning All Ireland Champions though?

Hardly slim and none. Tyrone are proud, and that beating will hurt them. And they hate Armagh. They're now home nearly a week, will likely have more personnel available and a week of training behind them. They'll have cleared some cobwebs. They'll want a performance as it's their last game before the league. There is a chance they could win, and hopefully they do it and we get through.

Good win for Denn. I thought Brendan's looked excellent at the start but they quickly faded and Denn played better, smarter football.

Gneeveguilla up next. They were Munster Intermediate Champions a decade ago and hammered the Tipp champions in the Munster final. Could be a tough day at the office for Denn.

The structure in Kerry means their clubs dominate Munster Intermediate and Junior.  There is 64 clubs in Kerry but just 8 play Senior Championship, with another 8 teams of Amalgamations.

The 9th best team in Kerry plays in Intermediate, when realistically 12 to 16 teams should be in their Senior Championship. But each County board has their own way of setting things up. Sean kelly passed that structure.
