The shock of the new

The senior county championship is entering the final furlongs and thanks to a truly astonishing work of Wiki-scholarship by ManFromDelmonte, those of us who take it all a bit casual can keep track of it. With Ballygunner’s defeat at the hands of Tallow and Mount Sion long gone after a woeful performance in the group stage, we have five teams left who between them have won the princely total of 12 championships. There doesn’t seem to be any causation between the competitiveness of a county championship and success at inter county level – Crossmaglen Rangers’ dominance in Armagh, for example, doesn’t seem to have harmed their county’s standing – but it’s nice to see the wealth being shared now and again.
