Replying To Pikeman96:  "@lugdrum - I've had a look at that table & results to see exactly what we're talking about here. Just to point out that the Connacht GAA website gives the result of Mayo v Galway as Mayo winning by four points (0-16 to 2-6), not the one point you say, so I'm going to use that. But it doesn't actually make any material difference to the permutations anyway.

So - if Leitrim & Mayo win the last two matches, then Galway, Leitrim, and Mayo finish on five points, and it goes to a mini-league between those three teams. The relevant matches have all already been played and results were:
Galway 2-16, Leitrim 0-13
Mayo 0-16, Galway 2-6
Leitrim 3-12, Mayo 0-16

i.e. each team has won one and lost one in this mini-league, and therefore they have two points each. So it goes to score difference:
Galway +5
Mayo -1
Leitrim -4

So yes, in this instance, Galway would have top spot no matter how much Leitrim and Mayo would beat Roscommon and Sligo by in the final group games.

However, if Roscommon and Mayo win the final group games, then they're the teams finishing on 5 points with Galway and going into the mini-league. Again, all relevant games have already been played, and results were:
Roscommon 1-13, Mayo 3-7 (draw)
Mayo 0-16, Galway 2-6
Galway 0-6, Roscommon 0-6 (draw)

So, in this mini-league, Mayo have 3 points, Roscommon have 2, and Galway have just 1.

Mayo would thus finish top of the table, with Roscommon in second place, and Galway in third.

How do the knock-out stages of this championship work anyway? Is it top two straight to a final, or top four playing semi-finals? Am just curious about exactly how much is at stake!"
1st to Final, 2nd v 3rd in a Semi.

1st placed team is straight into the final.

2nd plays 3rd for a place in the final

Thanks both. Plenty at stake then all right!

Obviously I'm not directly invested in it, but will look out with interest for the results this evening anyway.

Well, turns out it wasn't needed in the end!

Some win for Sligo....
