It's a tough one to predict this year.
At first glance cork don't look much stronger to me.
But I've always carried a sneaking suspicion that brian gartland is a bow legged horse in a man costume of a centre half so that theory will get tested this year.
shamrock look decent but Stephen Bradley football manager could still go either way. His performance at home to cork in one of the televised games last season had the distinction of being as embarrassing as rtes regular programming.
Logic tells me Derry shouldn't do as well playing home games in buncrana.
Pats continue the gradual downgrading of their squad.
Bray look to have some decent players. But does anyone care? Will those players care? We'll see.
I know nothing about sligo except that Mick Leahy alledgedly starts. Which if true means they're not very good.
drogheda, galway, harps and bohs are all dog****.
