Not that there’s many people who monitor or can judge this sort of thing, but even allowing for the fact it was played in January, it was probably as good a game of football as the old ground has hosted this millennium, outside possibly a Mayo-Cork U21 All-Ireland final or two.
It was the ideal challenge for both sides, given where each is at this point in their development.
