The World Cup has reached the quarter final stages, Wimbledon has almost reached its climax, yet the Provincial finals in the GAA championships have yet to yield their winners despite starting two months ago. When you think how fast these other tournaments are run off it makes you feel for the inter county players with the long drawn out season with gaps of up to six weeks between games. None of the big hitters has been eliminated in the football championship, and before you say what about Derry, they were never going to win the All-Ireland. One team I felt may be able to put it up to Dublin, physically anyway, was Monaghan. They are lucky to be still in the Ulster championship and they have no greater incentive to win their replay with Armagh than avoiding a replay against Tyrone in the qualifiers. Monaghan more than likely felt great about themselves after beating Tyrone, and clearly took their eye off the ball playing against Armagh, while probably looking ahead to an Ulster final repeat against Donegal without actually having qualified for it. They got the wake up call necessary and I am sure they will win the replay.

Mayo will make the same long journey their footballing brothers made a few weeks ago to Newry tomorrow afternoon looking to pick up a second win in the league and set them up for the Christy Ring Cup in the not to distant future. Christy Phillips’ men currently sit in fourth place in the six team division, out of contention of making the league final which will be contested by Meath and London the two sides who have beaten Mayo in this campaign so far. They sit one point behind tomorrow’s opponents from Ulster, thanks to their draw with Roscommon on the first day of the league and win over Armagh a fortnight ago in McHale Park.
It was good to see the Galway footballers fight back from a bad position in the first half in Pearse Park, Longford, last Sunday and claim a crucial two points against Monaghan.
Pat Flanagan has already made no secret of the fact that his side’s best chance of maintaining division two status is to win their home games. Not surprisingly then this Sunday’s game against Monaghan has to be seen as a six-pointer.
