Junior Championships to go All County?

(Oldest Posts First)

I heard that there is a push on to make the Junior Championships All County. With the new inter county formats for next year the pressure will be on to streamline the championships. This is very difficult if they stay in the present Divisional, uneven unbalanced format.

That'll be fought hard all the way I'd say. To be honest, I can't see how the junior championships take as long as they do in limerick, especially when the county team was finished reasonably early this year. Cork final finished Tuesday evening (replay) and they had to deal with Cork running later in the season and having divisional sides playing the the county championships (Imokilly won it with a few players from junior clubs involved in the first 15, as well as subs). The Boards haven't helped themselves in the way they have run these competitions over the years - I don't know if they have been letting clubs postpone matches for small reasons or not but as you say, the pressure will be on from now on to get competitions finished in time

Is this something the county board would be trying to bring in themselves, or would it require a motion from one of the clubs?

This will never happen, the west junior championship is too much of a money spinner. A motion to go all county failed two years in a row a few years back.

Hurling will have more teams from the divisions going out into the county championship, so the divisional championships will stay.

Football to go all county, 4 groups of 5 with top 2 advancing to the quarter final, 3 semi finalists from last year (croom, kilteely, fr.caseys) plus cappamore who were relegated will all be seeded into different groups I've heard. In the hurling 2 runners up from each division will get to the last 16 with the winner going straight to the quarter final. I presume both championships will have to start a bit earlier to allow for the few extra fixtures

just see the draws for the football, interesting group with Kildimo in it, to be honest with good management they should be out of this grade, some serious players but bias holding the team back. hurling should also go all county, it would make a good championship
