Croagh would have to be strong favourites to beat claughaun, Dromcollogher be fancied to beat Patrickswell but that could be a tighter affair.

As much as it would be a boost for hurling in the City Southside if Claughaun go up, I think it will be a Croagh vs Drom final with Croagh winning. I feel myself the junior is dragging out a bit too long especially when senior, premier intermediate and intermediate all done. Had the county gone into lockdown and with the inter-county season on the horizon, we could have had a problem getting the season finished.

Yes, unfortunately this looks like it wont be completed this side of Christmas in the current restrictions. Tough on Croagh/Kilfinny, Drom/Broadford, Claughaun and Patrickswell. Looks like January now if allowed but it can be played off quickly in 1/2 weeks. If played off by end January, there should be no disruption to the 2021 intermediate and junior groups. In fairness, it was a very good and competitive championship. Only downside was there was possibly too many teams which resulted in an extra couple of rounds as opposed to the senior and intermediate grades. Croagh/Kilfinny are still the favourites to make the jump up to intermediate.

Think drom/broaford are favourites, very good team, only lost one game and in that game, keeper was sent off early and still unlucky to lose but if it is played off in a week in January, any of the four could win.
