    Dublin teams have also won five of the last seven cups. I'm sure it will continue to have drama but you can hardly argue that some of the top junior teams in the country jumping ship will somehow be replaced out of nowhere. The fewer top teams in junior football nationwide will obviously dilute the quality.

    Maybe some of the big Limerick clubs an might follow suit and let Junior football be junior football again. The resources some clubs seem to have should surely make them want to step up a grade rather than shooting fish in a barrel every year.
    resources best put to advancement in football terms rather than exploiting the rule book to create objection after objection.
    I'll update this next year.

    Rich coming from someone from Newmarket Celtic.
    If there was a North Munster Senior League I'd agree with you, but I don't think that solely the clubs from Limerick should be forced to venture to Cork every second week.

    Intermediate would be great for football , some of the clubs in limerick are putting a lot of money into advancement. Have Killarney Celtic gone intermediate???

    By the way lads, Sheriff aren't gone Intermediate. They're gone into Major Sunday, the Junior ranks.

    I'd be amazed if they were still there next year.

    I can’t see them stay in the junior ranks for much longer. Top teams gone to intermediate looking at the teams that are challenging for the fai junior cup any half decent side will win it.

    They are only one league below Intermediate this year and would be about 1/100000000000000 to be promoted this year.

    First game last night 5-0 win against FC Transylvania who would be a decent enough team.

    They should have been put straight into Intermediate football as they are way too good to be playing junior football.

    There is precedence for a team going straight from the AUL into LSL Intermediate as Killester Utd did it a few years back.

    I agree because already the league is won, where’s the common sense in football 😱, the fai junior cup will become a diluted trophy. Is there a possibility of a Munster intermediate league with elite clubs?.

    Transylvania aren't decent enough - they were somehow promoted last year despite nearly getting relegated from Major 1. Sheriff will have to earn their place in intermediate football which is completely right.

    I'd love to know what the rest of the sides in Major Sunday think of Premier A Sheriff being dropped into their league.

    The LSL have a good history of doing this.

    In 2016 Collinstown were finishing up playing in Premier A in the AUL when they played LOI sides Shamrock Rovers and Bray wanderers (both had strong teams out) in the Leinster Junior Cup and beat both -Rovers in Tallaght .
    Later that season they joined the LSL and were put in the 6th league down (so they went from beating LOI sides down into Junior Football).They lost 1 game in the League (LSL Major 1)all season finishing up with a goal difference of +54 or similar.
    They also won the Polikoff Cup that year.

    Collinstown were placed below their ability level, as have Sheriff, but I think it's appropriate that intermediate football should be won on the pitch rather than being parachuted in. Major Sunday sides now get to play the biggest junior club in Dublin and can duke it out with them on the same level. I'm no huge fan of the LSL but they've got this one right (although Collinstown should also have been put in Major Sunday and I think LSL learned from that).

    When you have 5+ junior teams moving over every year you can't put them all in Major Sunday or above. There are other junior clubs that have gone into the LSL and not done so well, like Rivervalley, so it's appropriate to move an AUL junior club across to junior football in the LSL for me.

    Deserved win for St. Michael's against a very unremarkable Sheriff side today.

    I was at the game, Sheriff were poor. Michael's had the best of the few chances that were on offer, were solid at the back and had some other standout players like Jimmy Carr and the boy Armshaw. Can't say I'd say the same for Sheriff.

    I was there myself Shearer, great Sheriff team on paper, but you’re right, very average today. St Micks deserved winners in what has turned into a shambles of a competition this year.

    Is that the end for sheriff I wonder. Great to see st micks bringing the trophy back to Munster. The competition is a shambles atm with a lot of top clubs gone and objections.

    In fairness to St.Michaels they maintained their dignity throughout the competition and were not responsible for the off the field events. They waited over three months for this final through no fault of theirs and when the time came they were ready. They deservedly won on merit and congratulations to them. What a season, F.A.I Junior Cup winners, Munster Junior Cup winners, Munster Junior Champions Cup winners, TSDL winners and Tipperary Cup winners.
