It was a case of back to the future as Derry won their first Ulster title in 24 years but it was reminiscent of Donegal under Jim McGuinness says Ciarán Whelan on this week’s Throw-In podcast.

Whelan and Dick Clerkin joined Will Slattery and Michael Verney to look back on all four provincial football finals from the weekend where Kerry had little by way of challenge in Munster against Limerick, while Dublin’s hammering of Kildare has proven their All-Ireland credentials once again.

Meanwhile, Galway’s Connacht title win over Roscommon has them leading the outside pack with attention focusing on the football qualifiers over the next few weeks to see who can emerge on a run of form.

Every Monday the Throw-In brings you the best insights and analysis from all the weekend GAA action.

And don’t forget to listen to Philly McMahon’s show every Friday when he gives his take on the issues affecting the Football Championship.
