Plugging player drain on Leeside

All things must pass, as George Harrison once said. All good things, too, and no All-Ireland-winning team has been an exception in that regard.

However, few victorious football sides have lost as many so quickly to retirement and unavailability as Cork, who will be without nine of those who featured in the 2010 All-Ireland final win over Down.

How Cork compare to recent winners four seasons after All-Ireland success:

7*: Cork (winners in 2010)

8: Kerry (winners in 2009)

5: Tyrone (winners in 2008)

2: Kerry (winners in 2007)

5: Kerry (winners in 2006)

1: Tyrone (winners in 2005)

* excludes Graham Canty and Nicholas Murphy, who came on as subs in 2010 All-Ireland final.
