Club Competitions In Each County

(Oldest Posts First)

Just wondering what CCC's did in 2021 with shortened season and how many Games Club players got.

In Meath there was no League But normal Cup Competitions where played as a League in 2021

Football Clubs got minimum of 4 Championship games
Also 7 Feis Cup (Senior) /Tailteann (Junior) games so 11 in total

B or 2nd teams got around 7 Championship matches and no Cup games

In Hurling again no League but Minimum 5 Cup Matches
Minimum of 5 Hurling Championship Matches so 10 in total

B or 2nd team Hurling players did better than their Football counterparts with had Championship of 5 Cup games

What did other Counties do

In westmeath, All football clubs got 4 league games but they were only really challenge games as the league meant nothing this year as there was no promotion or relegation.

In championship, every team from senior to junior playing a least 5 games and the lucky teams that made the knockouts got extra.

Both Garrycastle and St Lomans are going to be playing there 9th game each in the replay this weekend so I'd say they are happy

In Antrim teams had a full 11 game league campaign. 4 or 5 group games in championship.

League gets played whilst county players aren't available.

For Longford at senior grade...

Division 1 had 11 league rounds, pretty much all will be done by this weekend. There will be Semi Finals and Final to play among the top 4 teams thereafter to determine winner of the 'Leader Cup' (League) title. In senior championship, each club played 5 group games, then into Quarter Finals, Semi Finals and Final. So Mullinalaghta played 8 championship games to win 2021 title and will have played 11 Division 1 games by end of the season, with at least 1 if not 2 more games to follow to decide that League title. So total of 20 or 21 games between 19th June and the time the season ends. (and at least one Leinster Club game, if not more).

Also, the delayed 2020 championship Semi Final and Final were played in August 2021. So for example Killoe played two games in that championship to win the 2020 title, as well as 7 games in 2021 championship to reach the semi final, and 11 Division 1 games since mid June. So Killoe played 20 competitive senior games since 19th June (13 played in successive weekends without a break) with at least one if not two League title games yet to play before the season ends.

So Mullinalaghta and Killoe will likely have played 22 games between 19th June and end of season at Senior grade. Other senior clubs will have played anything between 16 and 20 games since 19th June depending on how far they progressed in Championship or Leader Cup.

Only 3 senior hurling clubs in Longford. It's a round robin championship, top 2 into the county final. The 3 clubs usually compete in a CrossCounty league with the 2 clubs from Leitrim & maybe one of the Cavan teams.

Most efficient Dublin club season in living memory, Tons of games at all levels and no-one will be playing finals on Christmas Eve, as was (almost!) the case a few years back.
