New competition 2nd tiered

(Oldest Posts First)

it is now the right time to call for a new compettion for the division 3 and 4 teams as in my view they will never win the sam maguire . I think a fitting name for that compettion would be the peter keogh cup consististing of division 3 and 4 teams and then the winners are giving a bye into the sam maguire championship time to debate wicklow folk

Yes definitely. A second tier competition is the only way that football in the weaker counties will get better. Playing 2 county matches in the summer is just not good enough. But my worry would be that the County board can not run a well timed Championship the way things are at the moment, how on earth would they manage if they had to combine organising championship in conjunction with a run in any sort of summer County competition ??

So would the big Guns, the super eights be willing to offer this - Incentive for winning the second tier competition would be entry into the Super eights ?

are you saying that top their teams would only play top their teams and that 2nd their teams would only play 2nd their teams all in a type of open draw scene?? makes no sense to me.

my other idea is to mix the provinces up put all provinces like this example based on divisions

mixed province 1 mixed province 2 mixed province 3 mixed province 4 all provinces have their own trophy fairer system
division 1 teams division 2 division 3 division 4
