Lets get parochial.
It seems only a few weeks ago Cork took Sam back to the Rebel County – maybe because it was just a few weeks ago?
However, from now on down Down fans (mourning Mournemen?) and the rest of us get to forget the defeats and look forward to next year. Provincial football draws were made tonight!
As Slugger is clearly an Ulster blog, I’ll only note the fixtures for the Anglo-Celt cup:
Donegal v Antrim
Derry v Fermanagh
Armagh v Down
Tyrone v Monaghan
Donegal/Antrim v Cavan
That Armagh/Down match looks very tasty.
