I struggle to see the need for the first game also, but i assume it's just so we have seeding for the groups, i.e two winners and two losers, instead of having 4 really strong teams in one group and 4 weaker teams in another. But there is also the chance we could end up with this situation.

Have we any indication when the 3 group games will take place given that the 1st round is over the first 2 weeks in May? I assume we are looking at August again for the resumption?

Yeah group games will not be played until Kildare are eliminated from the championship.

It really dilutes the championship in my opinion and potentially a team that loses 3 games can still win it does not sit well with me

Can this happen?...

You could have this scenario in the proposed format. Prelim round : Moors v Sash / Athy v Celbridge.
Moors and Athy are 2 winners. The other 2 are losers. Draw for group stages. Moors and AThy in Group A as winners. Celbridge and Sash then get drawn in same group as losers.

Moors win Group through to quarters. Athy and Celbridge finish 2nd and 3rd and then playoff for quarters. So Athy and Celbridge could have played each other 3 times before quarter final.

Just wondering if there is some sort of stipulation to avoid this like you cant be drawn in same group as a team you played in prelim?

I think the playoff game between 2nd and 3rd is pointless. I can live with the prelim game as every player wants to play ball.

Have to say I think these open draws are a bad idea.You could have 2 or 3 group's of death and a handy group.Maybe they should seed the top 8 so they can't meet in the open draw

Go back to 4 groups 4. Top 2 through. Bottom team in each goes into relegation playoff. Guaranteed every game matters. Preliminary game for extra revenue clearly but just a challenge match in reality. Dilute the importance, reduce the crowd.
