Cavan’s Martin Dunne
The graph is going upwards. Four Ulster under-21s on the trot, allied to a no-nonsense promotion from Division Three. Despite many doubters, Martin Dunne has turned himself into a quality inter-county forward, Eugene Keating and Cian Mackey were already there. The best blanket defence in the business gives them a serious shout in Ulster.
Last good day: All-Ireland quarter-finalists last year.
