In fairness, The Harps have good underage teams, too.

Story in LaoisToday:

"Laois GAA’s decision to change the name of the Senior ‘A’ hurling championship to Premier Intermediate has paved the way for area teams to enter the Senior hurling championship."

"Clonad’s Donie Norton felt that, with the stroke of a pen, Laois GAA was relegating a lot of players from senior to intermediate."

Tit. They are already intermediate if they cannot win the senior championship.

At least now

They are intermediate, which is what they were and are all along and they can now play in the leinster IHC championship

Who is going to tell all the Intermediate teams they are now Junior A?

Eh? Am I missing something? The Senior 'A' is now going to be called Premier Intermediate, and Intermediate is going to remain as Intermediate. The Senior 'A'/ Premier Intermediate teams play in the Leinster Intermediate championship as it is. And Junior A will remain Junior A.

I think the point is that you can call them what you want but in reality we have 8 Senior hurling teams, a second tier which is Intermediate and the tier below that is Junior. Our Intermediate championship is really a Junior A championship. Only our Senior A champs, Rosenallis, played in the Leinster intermediate championship this year.  Mountmellick represented the Intermediate champions in the Leinster junior championship as the last non-second team standing in our third tier. I assume it will be the same next year?

100%.

Its hilarious how people get so hung up on the name of a cship. If you are senior you are in the top 8. Next grade you are 9-16th position. Followed by 17th-24th.

Clubs focus should be moving up the rankings, upskilling hurlers, creating opportunities to improve (at all grades) not cribbing over the name of the competition.

the significance of the title does have an impact.

clubs deemed to be senior pay a bigger annual premium to the county board, as there is a tiered payment/levy structure for junior/intermediate/senior clubs.
