Doubtless that Dublin, Mayo & Kerry (plus a couple of others) may be dusting down the calendars in anticipation. However we won't afford ourselve that luxury as from a purely Monaghan perspective, it represents a stark divide in the season. "Make the eight", and we are guaranteed a minimum of three games in the all Ireland series that can only be positive...and who wouldn't fancy an assault on Killarney or Castlebar for a crucial summer tie. Miss the boat, and it will feel like a calamity.
Ultimately the AI needs a group stage at the start (with a suitable accommodation to recognise the provincial champions)...but it looks like we'll have some nail biting seasons to endure first.
