Meanwhile a three-way play-off may be required to settle group two which features Moyle Rovers, Moyne-Templetuohy and Loughmore-Castleiney who are all battling for a place in the quarter-finals.
The county intermediate football championship quarter-finals are scheduled to take place on the week-ending September 30th, semi-finals on the week-ending October 14th and the final on the week-ending October 28th.
Group one reached a conclusion on Saturday when Grangemockler-Ballyneale beat Fr Sheehy’s (2-15 to 0-8) at Ned Hall Park and Clonmel Commercials proved too strong for Fethard (3-13 to 3-8) in Monroe.
As a result Grangemockler-Ballyneale topped the group on four points and even though Fethard and Clonmel Commercials finished on three points Commercials progress by virtue of their head-to-head record. Meanwhile Father Sheey’s finished bottom on two points.
Father Sheehy's 1-13 Fethard 3-11
Grangemockler-Ballyneale 0-12 Clonmel Commercials 0-12

On Saturday Moyle Rovers beat Moyne-Templetuohy by eight points (4-9 to 1-10). So, Moyle Rovers now lead the group on four points, Moyne-Templetuohy are second on four points, Loughmore-Castleiney are third on two points and Moycarkey-Borris are bottom on zero. Moycarkey-Borris take on Loughmore-Castleiney on Tuesday, September 11th in Dr Morris Park, Thurles (7.45pm). And, if Loughmore-Castleiney win a three-way play-off will be required to determine the final placings.

So, if Loughmore-Castleiney win their contest on Tuesday a three-way play-off will be required (three teams on four points).
