Promotion and relegation places at stake in final round of County Hurling League
Promotion and relegation places at stake in final round of County Hurling League

With Tipperary guaranteed to be playing in the championship up until mid July, the club championships are unlikely to resume until August at the earliest so the County Leagues will fill the void with the final round of group games in hurling taking place next weekend with the semi-finals and finals to be played in July. Here's how things stand ahead of the final round:

DIVISION 1
In group 1, Roscrea are through to the semi-finals and will be joined by Nenagh Eire Og if they get the better of Portroe. If they slip up, Eire Og Annacarty can catch them if they defeat Killenaule who need a win themselves and coupled with a defeat for Portroe would see the North men relegated.
In group 2, there is a four way battle for the two semi-finals spots. The top 2 Upperchurch and Borris-Ileigh clash in Borrisoleigh with the winner progressing to the last four. Drom & Inch will take on Burgess and Thurles Sarsfields facing Kilruane hoping wins might be enough to slip into the top two. At the bottom, Burgess need to beat Drom to have any chance of avoiding been relegated.

DIVISION 2
In group 1, Clonakenny and Carrick Swans meet in the final round with the winner set to be promoted and progressing to the final as there are no semi-finals in this division. At the bottom, Borrisokane have already been relegated.
In group 2, Lorrha will finish top if they beat third placed Mullinahone in Moatfield on Sunday, they themselves who can still finish top if second place JK Brackens slip up away to Shannon Rovers. At the bottom, Ballingarry need to beat Ballina to avoid being relegated while Golden face Newport 

DIVISION 3
In group 1, Drom & Inch are already through to the final as while they are two points ahead of second placed Boherlahan, Drom would pip them on head to head if they lost their final game against Ballinahinch and Boherlahan were to defeat Kiladangan. Ballybacon/Grange are relegated having conceded two walkovers
In group 2, Knockavilla Kickhams have won six from six so far but they can still be caught at the top as the take on an in form Moneygall in Dundrum , while Gortnahoe/Glengoole are also still in the hunt in a group that might come down to score difference. At the bottom, Moyle Rovers are relegated having conceded two walkovers.
                
DIVISION 4
In group 1, Arravale Rovers have been promoted and will play Carrick Davins in the final who top group 2, Father Sheehys and Skeheenarinky are relegated.

DIVISION 5    
Newcastle are through to the final and are guaranteed promotion and will be joined by either Cappawhite or Ballylooby/Castlegrace who meet this weekend
