Donegal’s rich potential must include ruthless ambition


FROM feast to famine. A week ago there were seven championship matches, with at least one in each province.

If Wicklow and Louth had not drawn there would only be one football game in the country today, Donegal v Armagh. Leitrim and London play the other match in Ruislip.

What this demonstrates clearly is the need for one overall authority to fix matches or, at the very least, much closer co-operation between the four provincial councils. Each Sunday around this time should have one really big game. On top of that there should be much greater use of Saturday evenings when there is a glut of fixtures.
