The draws for the Intermediate Championship group stages were made last night. Mágh Cuilinn's group has four teams who were victorious at the first attempt. 2008 champions Cappataggle won a controversial quarter final against Mágh Cuilinn on the way to that title and Mágh Cuilinn reversed the result in the semi-final of their Championship win in 2011. Kilconieron won the replay of their drawn quarter final with Magh Cuilinn in 2009. Oranmore-Maree games have always been tightly contested with Tomás Higgins last minute goal giving Mágh Cuilinn a one point victory in the 2009 preliminary quarter final.

The first tie will take place in Clarinbridge on Sunday 25th May against Kilconieron at 3.30pm. The game is preceded by a Group A game featuring Kilbeacanty. Before that the teams meet in Junior B Championship on Saturday 17th May in Ballyloughane at 7pm in a repeat of the 2013 Shield final.
