Two  teams  tied     =  head to head,  if even,  score difference

Three team tie = overall score difference.

It is an arguement that has been gone over and over on here but there is still no solution.

We shorterned the county season and what difference really has it had on the club season? Zero we are still playing our most important matches in October and into November.

Realistically what games of any value were played in the summer months?

U21 is a prime example and it has been pushed about for nearly all of its existence, but now it is running straight into College football at the back end of the year. So players will have been slogging with their teams since preseason this year right through to the end of the year.

i agree I think the u21 hurling should be played off in 4 weeks in june , and the u21 football mid july to mid august however I'm sure people will find problems with that.

Situation like that can the two teams not get their heads together and agree and get it changed? While referees can make errors you would expect good sportsmanship to prevail. Good that it was a match of little significance but same thing could happen in in a game of high significance. I suppose had it mattered would the 'winning' team be as willing to hold their hands up. I would like to think in all cases the answer would be yes and in doing so shows great sporting integrity and the difference between the battle on the pitch and the respect off it.

Happened to Creggan 'v' Ahoghill in 93. We needed to win the match to win Div 2. Ahoghill were leading by a point with 10mins to go and the ref blew it up for full time. Creggan argued with the ref that he blew it up early and Ahoghill confirmed Creggan's position. After a 10 min break the game restarted and we won by 2. Never experienced it before of after.

No fixtures up as yet. Has it been delayed because of the business still to be done in the leagues. Last weekends results did not really do much to alleviate the number of teams with all to play for.
