Replying To Pumpitinlow:  "The inter championship is a farce as it is, far too many senior clubs who are no where near the standard of senior should be dropping down would make the inter chmpship a lot more competitive could have a 2 up and 2 down situation every year meaning every game would nearly be a cup final The way it is now you prob have 3 teams that can maybe win it."
Totally agree with you...way too many Senior Teams(24) and not enough Intermediate Teams (14).
They should go back to the old way...20 Senior Teams 4 groups of 5 and maybe 16 Intermediate Teams 4 groups of 4.

What do you propose we do with the 2 leftover teams? Put them on a raft and push them out to sea?

There won't be any relegation because the country board don't want teams from so called hurling areas relegated just look at last year's once kilbakenty lost the first relegation playoff the whole thing was scrapped

I don't think it's just a case of a club been a stronghold. It a case of particular clubs have someone or some Tues with top table.

Kinvara v Moycullen
Turloughmore v kilconiron

Looking like a Moycullen v kilconiron final.

Rumour has it that Kilbeacanty are trying to get relegation called off again.
