It's certainly better than having the tired format of Liechtenstein vs. Portugal or Andorra vs. Germany etc. This gives nations a chance to play more games against teams on their level which will help them develop and get confidence by not being blown out 8-0 every match.

I love that Iceland is now considered a Top 12 European side.

Looking forward to the ties in dublin this autumn especially to see Coleman vs Wales!

Anyone know if the tv coverage has been decided for the other games?

What do the groups within the leagues mean - so if Ireland get promoted do they go up into group above or relegated to group A or the League below??

If Ireland win their group, they are promoted to League A. The groups within the revise leagues will be decided by a new draw, so they could go into any of the four groups.

My biggest reservation is that fact that one team from each league will qualify for the Euros. With the current format of the Euros, four third-placed teams in the group stage go through to the knock-out stage. If results against the fourth-placed team count towards this, the teams in the same group as the "minnows" will have a potential advantage.
