Well a Leinster County who consistently try to compete and improve itself, has now been prevented the opportunity to play in their own provincial Championship. For what it matters, it passed with 62%, under the old ruling, it would have failed to reach the 2/3’s majority required to get it through.
The winners of the Tier 2 grade which Laois will play in will be promoted to the Leinster or Munster championship for the following season. The team relegated will depend on who is promoted, with a Munster team facing a playoff if Kerry win Tier 2 and a Leinster team making the drop if it’s a team like Laois.
Cork had proposed that the Munster teams be protected from relegation but that was soundly defeated
That bit shows the ringfencing that is going on, and even the attempt by Cork to prevent it entirely. Its a closed shop now, go home lads, you’re at nothing.
