Galway have 8 matches to win the all Ireland. Armagh have 13
Galway automatically into Qtr Finals??? That's hardly fair on the rest of us!
Armagh max 4 Ulster, 3 Group games, max 4 knock out games.
2 Connacht 3 group of 4, qtr, semi. final

 a quarter final preliminary/qualifier if they do not win group.

The more likely this becomes the more Iím thinking the GAA needs a bloody big ďpre nupĒ as part of the merger.

Letís call a spade a spade. This would not be a partnership of equals. One organisation brings all the grounds and premises, the long-standing  tradition of volunteerism, the sponsorship, the media, the political influence, and the majority of players. The other organisations bring a minority of players.

The current hierarchy whereby menís football and hurling are pegged above their female counterparts in terms of importance is owed most significantly to the ownership of grounds. Currently one sport can call the tune ahead of the others. The other sports then set their schedules in and around whatís left.

For everyoneís sanity it has to stay that way. When the availability of facilities cannot keep up with demand, absolutely no good can come from an equal balance of power.

Equality yes. Egalitarianism, no. Thatís not going to work.



Yes the "Men's GAA" bring the infrastructure and why wouldn't they, they've had a 130 or 40 year head start. The LGFA and Camogie will bring a lot of things. I know in my own local club where it is basically run as one, the Ladies bring a whole different dimension to fundraising, coaching, and lots more.
The ladies are afraid it will be a take over. I think we take our time and get it right for all parties. One thing is for sure we could learn a lot from them, even in how their All Ireland competitions are run, with Senior, Intermediate and Junior all Irelands.

A gripe I have with the LGFA is that there are too many competitions. Last year in Down there were 9 championships played for at senior level.

what do you mean by 9 championships do you mean there was like 9   different tournaments  like league knockout cups  etc
