While Dublin’s stranglehold on the championship has been incessant since 2015, it’s a different story in the Allianz League.
The first two of their six straight championships were preceded by championship titles, and 2018 became another Doubles secured but there has been no league fame since then. Mayo and the current owner Kerry were honored in 2019 and 2020.
Your attempt to win back the trophy begins today in Roscommon with a throw-in at 1:45 p.m. at the Dr. Hyde Park, the first of three away games. Home edge for the campaign was stripped of Dessie Farrell’s men after breaking Covid’s infamous illegal training session at Innisfails last month.
The dubs may be favorites for the league but the available 5/4 -Price as opposed to the ridiculously short 1/25 they are offered to win an eleventh Leinster title in a row is an indication that they are standing with all due respect for their title.These three games are the only real tests that they have to face before a semi-final across Ireland.
And former Monaghan man Dick Clerkin warned of the metropolitan road trip on the GAA podcast by The Throw-in Independent.ie in collaboration with Allianz. </ "I wouldn't be surprised if Dessie Farrell sees this league almost as more important than the Leinster Championship," said Clerkin.
« Check out the games they have to play. Not to be unfair to Roscommon, but you would imagine them taking that. They then have to go to Thurles to play Kerry because they lost home advantage. No home games remember and Monaghan is in the same boat.

And while Clerkin believes that Since this is a handicap that the favorites can overcome, he believes that setting a marker will be crucial today.
« Let’s face it, when it comes down to it he’ll be back, but they will. » just want to clean up what to do early to avoid something very, very dark from happening.
« I think you’re going to get some surprises now with the way the structure relates to the team that may dip into Division 2 that it wasn’t expecting.
