Tasty sideline battles await as Provincial Championships draw is made

Lee Costello


2024 is looking good already.

The provincial championship draw has been made and we can look forward to some very tasty sideline battles as a few legendary managers are set to face each other.

Ulster is always the place to be when it comes to the provincial championship, and before a ball has even been kicked, it already looks so promising.

The key draw is the quarter final between Donegal and Derry which will see Jim McGuinness face off against Mickey Harte who is now in charge of the Oakland county.

Never mind the fact that these are two powerhouses in the competition, but the curiosity and fascination around the managers is nearly enough to get the juices flowing already.

Munster and Leinster never really gets the heart racing but Meath could be looking at their avenue to a potential game with Dublin, and be filled with some confidence following their Tailteann Cup success last season.
