Why is this week's pulled and next week starred? Because of the u20s this week?

On starred fixtures, as there is an odd number of teams in the divisions, does a team that has a bye on a starred round not get an unfair advantage?

Actually just noticed that u20s have their championship game the following week. What’s the difference in this week and next week? Surely star both weeks or call off both weeks? Cannot understand the logic.

Games can be starred if they are within 6 days of a qualifier match. Obv teams have objected to this weeks matches but should be no issues for next week.

There is a county bye law which states that the county board are only allowed to star so many games in the season

What's the craic with Diarmuid O'Sullivan along the line with the hurlers?  Is he part of the management team or just drafted in for important games?!

He's been up a few times for training sessions and the like on an Ad-hoc basis from what I can make out.

They've done well to date, but Meath are a step up and are rightly favourites.

No size but plenty of speed in the Down hurlers, especially in the forwards. Will be interesting to see how they get on in Croke Park.

On starred fixtures, as there is an odd number of teams in the divisions, does a team that has a bye on a starred round not get an unfair advantage?

An omelette needs a few broken eggs. 10 team top flights next year will free up weekends and make less need for starred games.

I’d guess CCC knew in advance they’d have to pull this week’s fixtures, and trying to star them was a hopeful punt. But as far as I know there’s no limit to the games that can be starred, as long as the championship match is within a week of a league round.

With 11 team leagues 1 team had a bye and it would have been unfair to star games.

This used to be the case but somewhere along the way the county board somehow did away with this rule. It used to be a maximum of 5 starred games. In 2017 there were 8 games starred which obviously didn’t go down well with some clubs. I think since then they have stuck to Croke Park guidelines of games can only be starred if they are within 6 days of a qualifier.

Rumours about that Caolan Mooney and Connaire Harrison are going to be playing club football in London very soon, and through in Jamie Clarke all for the same team!!
