From the42.ie  :   Cork manager hits out at Longford for 'appalling' decision that creates 'dangerous precedent'

https://www.the42.ie/cork-ronan-mccarthy-2-5246177-Oct2020/

What was the reason for Longford giving Cork a walkover ?
It seems very strange that it was sanctioned by the GAA.

Saving on Cork's expenses which presumably have to come from Central Council??
Still Connacht Champions

The game would have cost 12-15k to stage. Cork were sending up the juniors. Longford were fielding a dummy side as well.
What was the point in these Covid times putting us through the misery?

Allianz FL3 P   W   D   L   Dif   Pts
Cork (C)   7   7   0   0   42   14
Down (P)   7   4   1   2   0   9
Derry   7   4   1   2   15   9
Longford   7   3   1   3   6   7

If Longford had beaten Cork then Down, Derry & Longford would have tied on 9 points.
Am I correct in saying that in that situation Derry would have been promoted and not Down ?

Granted Down fielded an understrength team against Louth with promotion guaranteed.
However the Longford decision to give Cork a walkover seems very questionable to say the least.

You are correct. Scoring difference when more than two teams level on points.

Unless Longford won by 10 points, then Longford would go up.
