    Spawning from the Championship 2019 thread, Clare have played Kerry 5 times in 4 years, Mayo and Galway have played 5 times in 5 years. I wonder if any other match-up has taken less than 4 years to happen 5 times, excluding replays.

    Surely Cork Kerry, mid to late 00s

    They'd only have played once a season then, Clare played Kerry a couple of times in 1 season and in every other season, I can't find another pairing that have done that.

    Off the top of my head between 2004 and 2015 Cork played Kerry 19 times without a gap.

    12 times in Munster
    1 replay in Munster (2006)
    3 All Ireland Semi finals
    1 All Ireland Semi final replay (2008)
    2 All Ireland finals.

    So Kerry and Cork played 6 times in 3 seasons (excluding replays) 2007-2009, Kerry really don't play a lot of different teams by the looks of things

    Plus in the past few years Kerry have had Quarter Final matchups with Limerick and Clare, teams they are well used of meeting

    Derry and Tyrone played 6 times in 4 years between 2001 and 2004. Derry and Antrim played 5 times I think between 2000 and 2002, since then they have only played once in 2007.
