There are many scenarios to next Sunday’s final round of league games. Cork and Tipp are through on 6 points at this stage. Galway are through as they have beaten Clare and Kilkenny and they get the nod because of the head to head arrangement. If Dublin win or draw against Galway they are through to the quarter finals. Dublin could lose and still get through to the quarter finals if
1. Kilkenny beat Clare
2. Kilkenny and Clare draw
A Clare win over Kilkenny would mean that if Dublin lose to Galway, Clare would get the nod on the head to head arrangement. That would mean Dublin playing Kilkenny in a relegation battle.
So for Dublin a win or a draw next Sunday would solve all problems.
