They meet in the championship for the first time since 2014 when Armagh won a Round 2 qualifier tie by 0-13 to 0-10 in Omagh. Many people have suggested that this could be a very dirty match.“I think all they have to do is look back to the proposed bloodbath back in 2003. Maybe those same thoughts still prevail in some heads,” Harte told the Ulster Herald.“Although the All-Ireland final ended in a 0-12 to 0-09 victory, it could’ve been much more. Both we and Armagh could’ve had a couple of goals and quality defending prevented that.“Most of our games against Armagh were entertaining and memorable. As the old saying goes there’s none so blind as those who don’t want to see.”
