The draw for the 2012 McKenna Cup has taken place and once again Down and Armagh have been paired together in Newry on the 8th January. The 2 local rivals have been paired in the same McKenna Cup group for the second year running, both fixtures taking place in Newry. Last year Armagh came out on top with a 2-15 to 3-11 victory in a rain soaked Pairc Esler, in what was highly entertaining game for spectators. Both teams have also been drawn against Monaghan and St Marys in their group. Full Down/Armagh fixtures of the 2012 McKenna Cup:
