Antrim and Armagh on BBC2.

It will be interesting to see how Armagh bounce back from their relegation but I think it might well be a Tyrone v Cavan final in Ulster.

When will the next game be for the loser of Antrim v Armagh? Must be a decent break of next game isn’t until AI series/Tailteann

Is that Philly co-commentator for this game?

Armagh v Antrim teams


Which bbc2?


I’m lost :joy: “Porridge” on mine at present.

Antrim are brutal.


Presume that’s not possible on my Virgin box ? Excuse my lack of tech awareness.

Maybe I won’t bother :joy::joy:

I have virgin media tv. BBC2 HD (109) is showing a match ….on Porridge. BBC2 NI (709) is also showing the same match on Porridge. Much as I enjoy Fletcher’s antics in prison I’d prefer to watch Armagh v Antrim.
Is it a VM f… up or a GAA rights issue? Are they blocking Ulster matches from being shown this side of the border?

Antrim direct running causing Armagh bother.

Rafferty the Armagh goalie is a liability under the high ball.


Was at the game, great little stadium up there . Would love one like it in Dublin

Rafferty will need to be told to stay in his goal under high ball or teams will exploit it


BBC signed up Philly and MM this yr.

MM has the obvious advantage when covering ulster teams. But he’s good at flagging up stuff. Esp from a forward’s perspective.

Philly co-commentated with GAA Go. He got a few of the players name wrong…to be expected! But seemed very comfortable covering the game and you’re interested in what he says because of what’s he’s won.

Good to see players who played for so long stay around. And hopefully make a few quid.

The Oak Leafers travel to Enniskillen to begin their defense of the Anglo-Celt Cup.

Fermanagh v Derry teams

Sean Quigley not named in the 26.

Conor Glass listed to start. Eoin McEvoy isn’t but we’ll see who actually lines out. Ciaran McFaul has returned to the Derry senior football set up which is great news for Rory Gallagher.
