Provincial straitjacket remains for now but Tailteann Cup shows teams a second way


It was not long after I had retired from inter-county action in 2009 that I first expressed the view that the structures of the provincial and All-Ireland series were not fit for purpose.

ear in, year out, the weaker counties took a hammering in the provincial championships and the qualifiers provided the stronger teams with a second chance if they had underperformed or had got caught out cold in their respective provincial games.
