County Minor Championship in the Wilderness
With all due respect to Armagh and Monaghan ladies the opening Ulster Championship match in Omagh lacked the feeling of a big day out. With half an hour to go to the Tyrone and Monaghan clash there was less than a 1,500 people in the ground. The atmosphere in the minutes before the game was similar to the build up to a league match in February.
The Tyrone minors were denied the opportunity to play before the seniors yesterday as Monaghan forced them to play the Ulster Minor Championship match last weekend. This is due to the Leaving Cert Rule which denies teams playing Monaghan, Donegal or Cavan in the month of June.
Tyrone duly won that game so their reward would surely mean a long awaited run out before the seniors in the semi-final? Not so! They must wait until Sunday 3rd July to play.
Cavan have also invoked the Leaving Cert Rule despite the fact that the game was pencilled in for the 26th June and the exams finish on Friday 24th. Work that one out?
A quick look however at the Leaving Cert timetable does indicate that the Cavan lads will probably not be training that week because they’ll be reading up on Latin, Italian and Japanese.
Should be an interesting team talk at half time then on 3rd July.
