What are the rules if a tie goes to penalties? presume a no score bonus?

From page 1, where one would normally find rules::

Pick the winning team correctly and you get 1 point.  A bonus point is available for getting the margin of victory correct, within a 3-point band.  Band 1 is 1-3 points, so if you pick 1, 2 or 3 point margin, you get the bonus point.  Band 2 is 4-6 points; Band 3 is 7-9 points, and so on upward in 3-point increments.
 
Contestants need only pick the margin of victory in points, as was in the League competition.  I’ll translate it to bands as I input the selections.  So a pick that reads “Tyrone by 2” and if Tyrone win by 1,2 or 3 you get the bonus point in addition to the 1 point for getting the winning team correct.  There is no additional bonus for getting the margin exactly right.

Extra time is not considered here…if Tyrone win by 2 after 70 minutes or after extra time, the margin of victory is 2.  The only difference is for a game that is decided by penalties: the winning team is deemed to have a 1 point winning margin, no matter how many penalties are taken.

Week 6, by the way, on 21/22 May, will feature Preliminary Rounds if required in both the Sam Maguire and Tailteann Cup competitions.

Update:  I believe there will be two preliminary round fixtures in the Tailteann Cup. Details on Monday.

Week 7 on 28/29 May will be the 4 Provincial Finals plus Tailteann Cup Round 1 games.

Especially for "Algo" ONeill:

Of the 34 who picked Limerick, 6 got the correct margin (4,5, or 6 points). 

Well done to David McKeown, Gael85, rosnarun, Substandard, trueblue1234 and thejuice.
