Agree with you on a and b

Group c - can see pats doing well this heat

Group d - you are probably right but I'm going to go with Kilbride to surprise here

Meath Hill and Duleek Bell should be happy enough. Group C has 3 teams in it that everyone would have thought have a chance. Group D - well that first round derby game is so attractive. Is it third time lucky for Duleek/Bellewstown, will Oldcastle finally deliver ? I'm going to say that this is Meath Hill's big chance.

I think it might be O'Mahonys year to return to Senior football. They may not have the "superstars" of previous eras, but I think the overall standard of the intermediate championship has dipped a little over the past few years, so this will allow the Navan men to sneak over the line when all is said and done.

Group A: Bective & Meath Hill to progress
Group B: Ballivor & Duleek Bellewstown
Group C: The group of death: Moynalvey & Oldcastle
Group D; Walterstown & O'Mahonys

Walterstown with no Brian O'Connell and Ruairi O'Dowd I believe for the year? with a few more to go, very dependant on a few lads especially barry o'connell for scores.

Can't understand why they don't seed these draws, some lobsided groups across all grades. Group A and B are considerably

Group A: Meath Hill are my pre-competition favs, they're playing at a high level, some good young players and think they could be hard to stop. They just seem to have the odd blip though on the big day, but think they will go deep into the competition.

Take your pick from the rest, Bective probably best placed to join them in the next round.

Group B: Duleek almost got it done last year, and will be there again towards the latter stages of the competition. They'll be happy with their draw and should top this group

On paper, Castletown are the next best here and should be considerably stronger than Ballivor and Longwood. A young team with a new coach, so you never really know what you're going to get. But should go through here.

Group C: Group of death and unfortunate that one of these will miss out. You would expect Moynalvey's experience at Senior should be enough to see them top the group here, and St. Pat's should join them.

Group D: Really interesting group and probably not the welcome back to the intermediate grade Kilbride wanted. But very hard to call this one. I think it'll be all to play for come the final round of fixtures but Navan O'Mayony's and St Michael's to qualify.

OK, that will be a big loss if true.

It might leave the door open for a Kilbride team which promises to be competitive at this grade.

No doubting Meath Hill's credentials, and it would be great to see them go all the way. That being said, they may just lack the necessary consistency to get the job done.

Oldcastle & Pats are also teams who are quite similar: lots of quality, but too many peaks & troughs in the form line. /\/\/\

But that's the beauty of championship football: a lot depends on what team shows up on the day!
