10/12/13 4 qualifiers for the championship.
14/12/9 in each tier.
Again teams getting 2 competitions at a mix of levels whilst still keeping the competition at 3 tiers for each part of the season.

Some teams will be targeting league a little more and others championship but maybe there's a little bit more movement and progression over time than currently exists in hurling.

It could be the best one I've seen to be honest.
I like that there's only 2 rounds and that league placing contributes to seeding.
I think I'd schedule the tournament so that a teams seeding determines the weeks that they play.
So Provincial champions play on week 1,2,4 and 5. The most favourable weeks.
Provincial runners up and 3rd seeds get a 1, 3, 4, 5 or 1, 2, 3, 5.
The qualifiers gets 1, 2, 3, 4 or 2, 3, 4, 5.
I like that the B championship is a little shorter. 6 weekends for it. The final can coincide with a quarterfinal.
I think home away scheduling works better for the early stages of the championship rather than the later stages where neutral venues that are most suited to the fixture in question should be used.

There are small negatives.
Groups of 5 increase the risk of dead rubbers. To be honest though I think it is better earlier in a tournament and so is better than our current system.
A very small tweak would be to have 3 from each group qualify but then you could have a situation where a team has lost 4 from 6 matches and can be still in the All Ireland series so I think your 2 going through is better.

A GAA ranking could be used at the end of the championship;
1. All-Ireland winner
2. All-Ireland runners-up
3-4. All-Ireland semi-finalists (League placing to decide 3 and 4.)
5-8. All-Ireland quarter-finalists (LP - League placing.)
9-12. Third placed teams (LP)
13-16. Fourth placed teams. (LP)
17-20. Fifth placed teams. (LP)
21. Championship II winner.
22. Championship II runners-up.
23-24. Championship II semi-finalists. (LP)
25-28. Championship II quarter-finalists. (LP)
29-32. All remaining teams. (LP)
The GAA ranking could be used for provincial draws of the following year. It could aid avoidance of dead rubbers as teams look to finish as high as possible. It could mean a provincial bye in the following year or avoiding big teams.
The GAA ranking could be some form of wrap around ranking. The ranking ar the end of the championship as outlined above. The ranking at the end of the next league being a mix of the previous championship and current league. It'll be a very dynamic ranking, with teams fully in control of their destiny every year to move up or down.
