We only have about 8 genuine senior clubs in both codes. Having the divisional sides play off against each, and the strongest going through a quarter final stage, raises the standard of the championship.

Also, a division like Duhallow which is never likely to have a sustainable senior club serves a really good purpose and gives exposure to potential intercounty players from lower grades.
Who are the eight genuine hurling clubs?

The ones who have been contenders at the later stages at different points over the last 20 years or so. Maybe more than 8 in hurling, but a few traditional senior clubs have done little in that time.

In football, you'd struggle to get 8 really. Nemo, Haven, Collig, Barrs, Ross and Valley Rovers would be in. Clon probably, even if off those 6. Skibb and Douglas should be good enough but don't deliver, and all others are really intermediate standard and aren't likely to compete properly at senior level any point soon.

Looking at the match report i'd question Muskerry. No player from Naomh Aban, Beal Atha, Grenagh, Ballinora. 1 from Cill Na Martra & Eire Og, 2 from Aghibullogue and 2 from Macroom? These intermediate clubs should be providing a lot more players.

Fair enough a few involved with CIT and possibly UCC but still. No sign of Ronan O'Toole, Chris Og Jones, Cathal Vaughan and Peter Kelleher as Cork panelists is strange too. If they didnt have college commitments and all players that should be available to them were available they would be decent

Football I agree but no way in hurling, there has afaik been 16 different Q/f since 2014( that includes college/divisions but I didn't go back 20 years either)
I think writing off clubs as not being genuine hurling clubs based on the last years in a bit elitist and to be frank quiet snobby.

I never said genuine hurling clubs. I said genuine senior clubs, as in genuinely able to compete at the grade. And as I'm proudly from a traditional junior club I'll dodge the snobiness jibe.

Ideally we'd be in a spot with the potential for 16 strong senior clubs, and the commuter belt clubs and County towns should be to the fore in getting there. Also you'll always have the clubs who get a bit of a golden spell and thrive at senior for a few years, but struggle in the longer term. Likewise you'll have the traditional clubs who get in a slump and probably drop down for a while.

But that strength just isn't there, and won't be for a while unless a lot of work is done.
