The Round Robin fixtures for this season have been confirmed with the four team three round tournament kicking off on March 23rd and just one place left to fill.
While it will take a highly unlikely scenario for Portadown to be caught in Ulster, they still have a little bit more work to do to seal the title, Tullamore, Monivea and Richmond on the other hand have all secured their places.
Monivea and Richmond are very expierenced in this competition as (to a lesser extent) are Portadown while Tullamore are very much the newbies having one their first Leinster league title this season.
That said, their form this season, the success of Leinster side’s in the past four seasons and the Offaly clubs back to back All Ireland Cup titles makes them firm favourites to take the automatic promotion spot.
Skerries won last year’s qualifiers, Monivea finished second and lost to Ards in play off.
