Okay, now that others have had a go as well, I'll be a little more specific in my guesses.

I'm enough of a history nerd about Wexford's six-in-a-row Leinster and four-in-a-row All-Ireland to know that we beat Antrim in the semi-final of one of those years, and beat Clare in the All-Ireland Final of 1917. So that rules those two out.

And much later than that, but still a little while ago now, I remember us playing Roscommon during Jason Ryan's time in charge.

So, I reckon four counties we've never played in championship are New York, Donegal, Sligo, and Leitrim.

Still can't think of a fifth one, so am sticking to my guns that maybe it's a trick question and the answer is Wexford, because we've never played ourselves!

Waterford we played in last couple of years, cork in 2011 Kerry I think in 1917 limerick we played a few years and there was contiversy tipp aswell we played in qualifiers. Definitely never played New York but played london in a qualifier. Bet Galway in 2010 don't remember playing mayo but reckon we played them when we were good in 1910s Roscommon maybe aswell Leitrim I would say we never played. Sligo the same. Donegal wouldn't say we played. Derry played a few times in the naughties down we bet in 08 Antrim never played Fermanagh I think we played once in the naughties but that could have been a league final Armagh we bet in 08 we played Monaghan in the park and Cavan I think we played in 45

Didn't look that far back but yes we beat Clare. We didn't beat Antrim though. We only played Cavan and Monaghan from Ulster. Antrim have never won an Ulster title as far as I know. So my amended 5 are -
Antrim
Donegal
Leitrim
Sligo
New York

Resorted to Google I'm afraid. Antrim won the Ulster championship numerous times! And just before our 4 in a row AI team. And we beat them in 1913 in the AISF. So I'm back to 4 again!!!!

Think you are right Pikeman96. The 4 counties plus ourselves.

Antrim have actually won 10 Ulster titles, but I don't blame you for not remembering them (!), as they were a long time ago: 1900, 1901, 1908, 1909, 1910, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1946, and 1951.

Reckoned then it had to be 1913 that Wexford played them since that was the first year of our Leinster six in a row, and sure enough, according to good ole' Wikipedia, we beat them in the semi-final that year by 4-4 to 0-1

Lost the 1913 and '14 All-Ireland Finals to Kerry, and beat them in the 1915 Final.

My stab at it would be
Donegal
Leitrim
Sligo
Galway
NY

Galway seem odd but I cannot remember playing them in the modern era. Tey could be there in times past in Semis

We definitely bet Galway in 2010. Joe Kiernan was over them. I was at it miserable day in salt hill Marty Morrissey sang purple and gold with us in the pub after great craic.

Think we played ourselves once and would you believe it we lost. Couldn't resist that, sorry.
