How many teams get out??
Jaysus it’s going to be seriously competitive.
2 up 2 down unless a second team makes senior b final or Craobh are in the relegation position
After the round robin competition the first placed team in each group will advance to the semi-finals. The teams finishing 2nd and 3rd in each group shall play in quarter finals.
2nd placed teams play 3rd placed teams (Group A v Group B) In semi-finals the higher placed teams will play the lower placed teams.
In SHC 1, SHC 2, SHC 3 and IHC relegation will be decided as follows: Team finishing 4th in each group will play team finishing 5th in the opposite group with the losing two teams relegated.
This is a proper championship
We’ve waited a long time for this
Every game will be super competitive , am I right in saying every senior 1 game should be played in Parnell park
If they are resurfacing it perhaps
Surely Craobh favourites to top group B
And as only craobh can do they will probably top group A aswell
Maypark I’d have said
Were getting there!
I like this format and everyone in group b will fancy themselves to finish top!
The bye is going to have a major say in it, especially on double game weeks when one team will be fresher at the weekend whereas the other team would have had a tough game and will be carrying a few knocks no doubt.
Who gets through could simply come down to this especially in group 2 as it’s going to be tight.
Great point Parish. The first two games are on July 20th and 23rd. Everyone will want their bye one of those days to avoid a double game week.
The least advantageous bye is probably the last game week? Whoever is idle that week will be the only team to play 4 games on the trot with no break.
This is better. Exciting championship ahead by the looks of it.
In fact looking at all championships, it looks very competitive all round.
With Timmy Hammersley now on board and a core group of players still there I would give Boden a great chance this year
True but I still fancy Crokes, and Cuala will always be there. Let’s not forget the promising NaF. I fear we could be left behind…
Any idea how the fixtures will fall?
Rushe is vital though
