The forgotten team in Ulster. Pretty settled side with quality sprinkled throughout it and the second longest-serving manager in the country at the helm. Losing Kalum King (work reasons) is a blow, although McCartan has hinted that he might return later in the year. Otherwise, they’re not in bad shape and won’t fear Tyrone.


Last good day: All-Ireland final in 2010
