The GAA tonight have made the decision to switch the Ulster final from Clones to Croke Park for the second year in succession. This has also necessitated a change of date from the 17th July to Sunday 10th.
My main concern at the moment is seeing Armagh get to the final but I can't help but think that the GAA might jumped the gun a little in this case. Although last years final at Croke Park was a huge success with a massive attendance, things could well backfire. While a Tyrone Armagh Ulster final clash would undoubtedly bring a huge attendance to HQ, there is no guarentee that either will be in the final. If, for example, Derry qualify, they have a notoriously small support and a Derry Cavan final could mean the Ulster Council ending up very embarrassed at a poor attendance. There are also going to be although of angry publicans in Co. Monaghan! I don't think there was any need to make the decision so quickly, although hopefully it'll be a huge success and we'll see Armagh avenge their 2003 All Ireland final defeat as they claim another Ulster title at the expense of the Red Hands!
