Social Media Reaction – Future of inter-provincials


Ulster qualified for the Interprovincial football finals yesterday, following a 3-17 to 1-15 win over Munster.

Peter Harte was the star man for Pete McGrath’s side, as he scored 1-8.

He was not the only player that caught the eye though, as Derry’s Enda Lynn and Aidan Breen scored the province’s other two goals. Armagh’s Stefan Campbell scored five points, and Fermanagh’s Tomas Corrigan scored 0-4.

Interestingly the only Ulster county that wasn’t represented was Donegal. Rory Gallagher had organised a challenge match for the same day, but McGrath said the reason for their absence was a wedding.

The Ulster hurlers lost 3-21 to 1-15 to Munster.

The reaction on Social media was positive from the both the Ulster hurlers and footballers, who were delighted at having been part of the Interprovincials series.

However, low attendances left pundits questioning the future of the competition.

Ulster play Connacht in the final next Saturday in Carrick on Shannon at 2pm.

Here’s the reaction to the semi-final win, and the opinion on the future of the games:












Will Tomas Corrigan's fantasy score improve in 2018?

Will Peter Harte's fantasy score get better in 2018?

More players have been added to the Tyrone Panel.
