How would Kildare losing trigger a prelim round?
Surely it only applies to Div3/4 teams

Because Westmeath are a Division 3 team who would be in a provincial final in this situation.
It would mean there are at least 9 teams in the Sam Maguire qualifiers, which would mean that a preliminary round is needed to get the number for round 1 of the Sam Maguire qualifiers down to 8 teams.

My understanding is if there are 9 teams, all of them would be put in a bowl and the first two drawn out would play each other with the first drawn getting home advantage.
Similar for 10 teams.

I think I read somewhere that teams that make their provisional semi finals will not have to play in the preliminary round.
Without some goals and some efforts to reach it, no man can live.

Read that too that the PROVINCIAL semi Finalists wouldn't be in the preliminary.
I think that's Armagh,  Tyrone, Mayo, Clare, Louth in it if it happens.
Whatever about Westmeath  Tipp beating Limerick is quite possible.
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

If Westmeath beat Kildare then they would be in the Leinster final (if beat in that they would be in Round 2) of qualifiers along with other beaten finalists
If Westmeath lose they are in Div 3 so would be in tailatan cup

The only tie that can trigger a prelim round
Is if Tipp beat Limerick
Otherwise itís not a prelim round - all teams would be in round 1

No it wonít
If Kildare go into Maguire competition
Then there is 10 teams
5 games - so how would that trigger a prelim round?
Itís only if a Div 3/4 team enters

If Westmeath beat Kildare then they would be in the Leinster final (if beat in that they would be in Round 2) of qualifiers along with other beaten finalists
If Westmeath lose they are in Div 3 so would be in tailatan cup

Lord give me patience.....
The first Round will consist of 8 teams.
If 9 or more qualify a Prelim Round is necessary to get it down to 8 so you can have 4 winners to play the 4 losing PROVINCIAL Finalists in Round 2.

For those who haven't seen the Sam Maguire Qualifier Rules, as published in Dec 2021 (note the Prelim Round, if needed, will be limited to teams who did not make their Provincial semi-final):

Thus, the two counties promoted from Division Three in the competition year will be eligible for Tier 1, and the two counties relegated from Division Two in the competition year will be eligible for Tier 2, unless otherwise provided for above.

Read somewhere that if there's no preliminary round that the draw for the first round proper won't take place until the Monday before the games. Which if true is kind of stupid seeing all teams will be in it next week. Surely the draw will be known this day week.
Finest GAAboard moment: finished joint first on week 2 of the League prediction competition.

Even a date for the draw would be good at this stage, all seems very cloak and dagger unless I'm completely missing the info.

All teams will be known today - can't see why Qualifier draw can't be made tomorrow. Give teams and supporters 3 weeks instead of 2 weeks notice

GAA admin don't care about supporters. If they did they would still accept cash at the turnstiles and not have older people struggling to get into matches. Their ticketing shambles is shameful and likely not helping attendances.
