They' were in a relegation playoff even if they had won that game, what it did was reduce the chance of suspensions and injuries while also giving lads carrying knocks more time to recuperate

Correct me if im wrong but by Killashandra conceding their game against Drumgoon it prevented Drumgoon from enchancing there score difference thus preventing them from topping the table. As it happened Drumgoon won their quarter anyway final but surely they would have prefered to top the table. If this happened in soccer the team would be awarded a 3-0 victory maybe something like that has to be brought into gaelic aswell automatic 10 point victory or whatever would seem adequate.

I see your logic but how is that fair to teams who have played the team who conceded and not beat them by 10 points?

The only way to solve this situation repeating itself is to fine any club at all levels €1000 EURO for failing to field a team put their score for and against to zero remove the scores they conceded and scored to other teams and remove the two points from all teams that played them who won. I think they will think twice about conceding a game again going forward. Time to put an end to it once and for all it has been going on far too long.

The other teams who played killashandra had the opportunity to put up as big a score as they could, by drumgoon not being able to play Killashandra their score difference stayed the same as if it was a draw so i think its more unfair on them, considering they probably would have beaten Killashandra quite comfortably but that is irrelevant.

@seanorinn That would only work if every team had played each other which is not the case here.

Score difference does not come into play when a team gives another team the points . So get over it and move on .

No the only way to nip this conceding of games in the bud is to relegate any team that does it. as soon as killeshandra conceded they should have been relegated

Enough about the relegation debate for now. Back to the games this weekend, hopefully the weather stays more settled so we can see two good games on Sunday. I think there will be a big crowd and some good weather would make it a great day out for all.

Looking out the window the weather is terrible and the pitch will not stand up to two games if it continues.
It will be hard to have a presentable pitch for next week.
Best of luck to all involved.

Well done Shercock. They were a surprise packet in this years competition and it's nice to see the underdog win.

Very enjoyable intermediate final today. Could of went either way & Ballyhaise missed probably 4 good goal chances. Credit to shercock that they stayed in the game & took there chances. Really thought the junior final was extremely poor stuff. Ballymachugh the better team but don't look like they will have much to offer at intermediate level

I fancied Shercock in this competition for they have a lot of talented players. I felt if Clarke played football to his potential and Clerkin likewise they would do well not sure if they did but it was how I felt. I cannot comment on the game as I was in hospital. Same with Drumalee they were beaten by the favorites so maybe their chance next year. Congratulations to the winners and I hope they don't keep celebrating and get back training soon for Ulster.

It's funny to see all the talk about ballyhaise and Laragh on this forum. And not a word about shercock! People can say what they want about shercock. But when it comes to is shercock bet the top 3 teams after the group stages when it came down to it!

I think Ballymachugh may struggle too at Intermediate but don't think they'll be too worried for the moment. Glad to see them win- they deserve it. Congratulations to all in the club. Had they lost it would have been very tough for them to take and from next year on Junior will be a bit tougher to win.
