FOR the first time in the history of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, which kicked-off in earnest yesterday, over half the county teams are managed by outsiders -- that is people who were not natives of the particular counties.

In Leinster only five counties have native managers -- Louth, Meath, Dublin, Laois and Carlow.

In Connacht there's only two -- Mayo and Roscommon.
