This is way overdue but better late than never. I’m afraid that this year’s championship prediction mini-league turned out to be collateral damage arising from our long and winding road to the final. Now that the championship’s over, though, it’s time to tie up this particular loose end.
The most recent update I did was back in mid-July – was that after the Clare win and just before the near-death experience that was the Cork match? I think it was – so there should have been plenty of scope for change on the leaderboard in the weeks since then.
At the top, though, things didn’t change a whole pile and Mayo Brigade, who was second back in July, stayed the distance nicely and won by a handsome margin of 42 points at the finish. No need, in other words, for any win-at-all-costs wrestling with the opposition to see out the win there.
Congrats to Mayo Brigade on winning this year’s championship prediction competition and thanks all for taking part. The final leaderboard in this year’s mini-league is below.
