Who Was Winning Matches?
The build-up to the 2012 GAA Football Championship raised many familiar questions and a few new ones. Could Champions Dublin win back-to back titles? Would Kerry seek to revenge the loss of last year’s final? Could many pundits’ favourites, Cork, regain the form that won them the title in 2010? Will the efforts of Kieran McGeeney and Kildare finally yield some success? Who would prevail in Ulster where even retaining a provincial title is so elusive? Could Donegal succeed where others had failed or would Tyrone re-emerge? And over in the west could James Horan take Mayo one step further than last year’s Connacht title and an All-Ireland semi-final spot?
Without giving the storyline away the one similarity between 2011 and 2012 was that, for the second year in a row, no teams came through the back door to the later stages as it was the 4 Provincial Champions who made it to the All-Ireland Semi-Finals. But that’s where the storyline changed. Both of the beaten semi-finalists in 2011, Donegal and Mayo, qualified for the 2012 semi-finals and this time both were winners on merit. A year of surprises culminated not just in a unique final pairing but a final that was unprecedented in terms of ticket demand and media interest. Would it be Jim McGuinness and Donegal, the form team of the year, winning a second title for the county? Or could James Horan lead Mayo to taste All Ireland glory?
