McCurry concerned at ‘cramming in’ Ulster Championship

The Edendork attacker emerged as one of the Red Hands most impressive performers during the early stages of the season, turning in a series of excellent displays in both the McKenna Cup and National League.

With the club season due to take priority during what remains of the summer months, the inter-county Championships have been pushed back into the winter.

Traditionally regarded as the ‘crown jewel’ in the GAA calendar, the provincial championships won’t now commence until the end of October, a switch which McCurry believes could diminish them.
