Former All-Ireland club champions Castleisland Desmonds will be flying the Kingdom flag, while Tyrone will be represented by three teams; 48 teams will take part.
At yesterday’s launch in Croke Park, Kilmacud Crokes (football) chairman Pauric McMenamin said it was a matter of great pride that a competition launched 33 years ago had become one of the main showpieces of the All-Ireland final weekend.
