Hard championship to call. Annanough should be favourites having come down from intermediate. Park should be there or thereabouts. Think Kilcavan are getting too old.
Of the second teams, Graigue,  Port, The Heath and maybe Stradbally will go well.
I'll guess at a Park v Annanough final.

Expect your lads to take care of Ballylinan Joey.
Annanough should be the team to beat although you'd never know what Graigue might have.
Surprised that Port and The Heath are playing for survival but whoever wins it could go well yet.

Never straightforward with Kilcavan, I guess its the same for most clubs with a small pool of players. As can be seen from the league results Kilcavan lost 7 and won 3, yet the 3 they won were against Annanough, Park & Timahoe. So if Kilcavan have their strongest 15 available they are a match for most teams at junior and intermediate level but even losing one or two players can have a big impact on them.

Did they not lose to Annanough by like 40 points?

Yes, they were hammered in the relegation playoff against Annanough but think they were missing 4 or 5 starters that day, but they beat them in the original league game 2-12 to 2-09, when they had a full pick. Which basically illustrates my point.

While your point may be valid, I'd proffer the suggestion that Annanough in the league and Annanough in the championship/knock out situation are quite a different beast.

I see they hammered Ballylinan last night, 10 goals in 2 games, they're high scoring thats for sure.

Yes of course Annanough or any side really are a different animal when knockout games come around, basically the point I was making it can be hard to judge teams who have a small pool of players such as Kilcavan. Clubs with larger squads could absorb a couple of players missing without too much difference to the side, a club like Kilcavan struggle with losses as is evident with the mad swings in their results and performances. I will put it this way, if they were to meet Annanough in knockout championship this year and both sides are full strength I very much doubt one side will win by 40 points or whatever the Div 2 playoff result was.

Too many f**king amalgamations. Spare a thought for the County Board trying to fix games, what f**king hope have they?! Clubs and players can't have it every which way. Take Michael Bermingham for example, Kilcavan, Mountmellick and Ballyfin Gaels, like how would you even go about sort out that fixture list? Ballypickas are amalgamated with Margy in IHC and then with Shanahoe in SHCA. Its quite frankly ridiculous. Amalgamations need sorting out in this county, once and for all. Kinsella was right with what he said about Mountmellick Gaels, and its only the tip of the iceberg.

agree with all that. if you can dream it, the county board will allow it. Farcical setup at present.
