Geraldine Doherty is out long-term for Meath
Geraldine Doherty is out long-term for Meath

Donegal v Monaghan, Convoy, 2.00pm

Monaghan are currently sitting in fourth place in the league table with Donegal second from the bottom. A win for Donegal would be a huge boost to their campaign but Monaghan have been playing with intent and they look on course to take the points.

Kildare v Laois, Ballykelly, 2.00pm

A Leinster derby and two teams that know eachother inside out. Kildare will be looking to get some points on the board as they are currently lying bottom of the table. Laois, however, have won three out of four game sos and have their eyes firmly set on a spot in the semi-finals. They should have enough here.

Tyrone v Dublin, Killclogher, 2.00pm

This will be the first time that Tyrone and Dublin have met since the 2010 All-Ireland final. Since then the two sides have experienced much change, especially with new management teams in place in both counties. Dublin have definitely looked the stronger side so far this year but Tyrone will be eager to take advantage of the early start for the travelling Dubs.

Meath v Cork, Ashbourne, 2.00pm

Meath will be reeling after the loss of Geraldine Doherty, one of their most influential forwards, after she suffered a broken leg in their match against Dublin. All money would be on Cork as they haven’t lost a match so for in 2012. Meath will need to produce a top class performance to cause an upset this weekend.
