A dull start to Saturday in western coastal counties, with more outbreaks of rain and drizzle moving in off the Atlantic through the morning. But the rest of the country will stay largely dry and bright, until later in the afternoon or early evening. Highs of 16 to 19 degrees, in moderate to fresh southwest winds. The rain will clear away overnight. The latest charts now indicate that Sunday looks like being a bright, fresh day. Most places should be dry with occasional sunny spells and any showers should be light and well scattered. Highs of 16 to 19 C are expected in moderate southwesterly breezes.


Derry v Wexford - All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 2B

Wexford footballers make the long journey to Owenbeg in the hope of eliminating another Ulster county from this year's championship. Two weeks ago at Wexford Park, David Power's troops deservedly defeated Down by five points, with brothers Naomhán and Tiernan Rossiter among the goals. Captain Ciarán Lyng, Michael O’Regan and Ben Brosnan also impressed on a night where league positions counted for nothing as a Division 4 side eclipsed a top-tier outfit.

While Wexford were enjoying a notable success, Derry were making life difficult for Donegal in the Ulster semi-final in a dour contest. Brian McIver's side eventually lost out by two points but they had chances to win the game. And while their approach on the night was far from eye-catching  - withdrawing 13 players behind the ball and then launching missiles in the direction of Eoin Bradley - it certainly frustrated Donegal.

In 2014, Derry were caught cold by Longford in the qualifiers. They'll be keen to avoid a similar outcome this weekend, though Wexford will travel with much confidence to ensure that this clash could go down to the wire.

Verdict: Derry

Tipperary v Louth - All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 2B

Jim McGuinness picked out Tipperary as one of the teams to watch in this year's championship. His interest in them no doubt based on the decent under age success the Premier County has had in recent seasons.

Many observers expected Tipp to give Kerry their fill of it in the Munster semi-final. However, their cause was not helped by kicking 13 wides and not building on a positive start. Kerry ran out comfortable winners in the end. Tipperary will now aim to give a better account of themselves through the back door and a home tie with Louth is a draw they'd have welcomed at this juncture. 

The Wee County have endured a difficult 2015 so far, though the win over Leitrim the last day will have lifted spirits somewhat. Conor Grimes' introduction was the key as he grabbed a second-half goal to set up the 1-15 to 0-11 victory.

Tipperary had 11 points to spare when the sides met in the league in Drogheda. Having home advantage will add further to the prospect that they can follow up on that success.

Verdict: Tipperary             

Tyrone v Meath - All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 2B

Healy Park is the venue for what, on paper, looks like an intriguing contest. It's close to two months since Tyrone ran Donegal close in Ulster. They subsequently had a long wait for their qualifier bow against Limerick - a match where Mickey Harte's side took their time to get going but eventually ran out winners by nine points.

Meath may have been involved in the game-of-the-year so far against Westmeath in the Leinster semi but the manner in which they lost control of that encounter will have hurt. The Royals played some great stuff for about three quarters of the match and their score of 2-18 would win the majority of inter-county contests.

Two years ago, Tyrone and Meath met in the qualifiers at Croke Park, with the former winning by two points. Sean Cavanagh was the star man that day. He's still likely to have a big influence on Saturday. If the Royals have recovered fully from the trauma of the loss to Westmeath, then they have the offensive threat that can reap a positive dividend.

Verdict: Meath       

Longford v Kildare - All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 3A

Issues surrounding the stand at Pearse Park sees this qualifier take place at Cusack Park in Mullingar. Longford have 'home advantage' though their manager Jack Sheedy sees no issue in travelling the short distance to the Westmeath venue. Speaking to RTÉ Sport, he said: “We opted to go to Mullingar and Cusack Park is not too dissimilar to Pearse Park. But at the end of the day it's all about performance and not where you play."

Sheedy can take heart from the way his side have responded since their hammering at the hands of Dublin in the Leinster quarter-final. Last weekend, despite being reduced to 14 men, they finished the stronger to record a 2-12 to 1-12 victory over Clare in Ennis. Momentum is everything and Longford won't fear the Lilywhites on Saturday evening.

Jason Ryan's side, for their part, dusted themselves down after their trimming from the Dubs to just about get over Offaly a week ago. A late goal from the Faithful County made things interesting at O'Connor Park, with Ryan "delighted to come way with a win."

Speaking further to RTÉ, he said: "We were lucky to get the win in the end, but now we have a chance to drive on and keep going."

Kildare have been operating at a higher level than Longford in recent seasons and that should count for something. Yet, you wouldn't be placing a great deal of faith in them to seal the deal. 

Verdict: Kildare  

Dublin v Limerick - All-Ireland SHC Qualifier Round 2

An opportunity here for either of these sides to really make their mark on the hurling summer. Dublin recovered from their heavy loss to Galway in Leinster to comfortably defeat Laois by 10 points last Saturday. Limerick, after going down badly to Tipperary in Munster, made heavy weather of getting over Westmeath on the Sunday.

TJ Ryan's side have gone back since last year when arguably they could have reached an All-Ireland final. Against Westmeath, they went 20 minutes without scoring in the first half.

As for the Dubs, they haven't really hit the heights since their first-half showing against Cork in the league semi-final. Like Limerick, they also had a barren spell in their last outing as they failed to register a score for nearly 20 minutes in the second period.

Much improvement then needed from both sides in their quest to make a mark in the All-Ireland series.

Verdict: Dublin   

Cork v Clare - All-Ireland SHC Qualifier Round 2

For the fifth time in just over two years, Cork and Clare will lock horns in championship hurling. The Rebels have had the upper hand in that time, though crucially it was the Banner who emerged victorious in the 2013 All-Ireland hurling final replay. Yet until last Saturday's win against Offaly, that was their last win in the championship. Conor McGrath and Tony Kelly led the charge for Davy Fitz's side in a game where Colm Galvin returned to the fray.

Cork gave an indication of their intent with a strong first-half performance that saw them floor Wexford. Ahead by 14 points at the break, JBM's men weren't nearly as fluid in the second period but that said, the manager was keen to accentuate the positives when highlighting the "very, very good first half" in an interview with RTÉ Sport .

Current Laois manager  Seamus 'Cheddar' Plunkett thinks the Rebels could be dark horses for this year's All-Ireland.

Speaking to RTÉ, he said: "I certainly wouldn't rule them out. The old adage that a Cork team could come any time and win an All-Ireland may not be as true as it was in previous years but that will always be there.

"They have such a natural level of talent in the team that once they get going, with momentum behind them, they're going to be very difficult to stop."

People have been taking all week that Davy Fitz 'has something up his sleeve' that will propel Clare to the level that saw them reign supreme two years ago. There's no denying the talent in his squad and if they click they will be difficult to beat.

Verdict: Clare

Dublin v Westmeath - Leinster SFC final

It's a first ever meeting between the counties in a Leinster decider, with Dublin the warmest of warm favourites to claim a tenth provincial crown in 11 years. The Dubs have amassed 9-43 in their two championship victories to date, with Jim Gavin getting a chance to run the rule over his talented squad.

Westmeath are back in the final for the first time since they claimed their one and only provincial crown in 2004. In the semi-final, they also created a first in finally beating neighbours Meath in a championship match. The Lake County finished the stronger in what was an absorbing contest - a high-scoring affair that really lit up this year's championship.

Tom Cribbin's side cant afford to be as offensive in the final, though in Kieran Martin they have a player who can burst up the field with real intent.

RTÉ analyst Dermot Earley believes Westmeath will "park the bus" in an effort to stop the Dublin advance.

"You can't go man-to-man against Dublin so the next point then is to go defensive," added the former Kildare star.

However, he went on to say that "Westmeath won’t be turning up just to make up the numbers. Yes, they will park the bus, but in the hope of upsetting Dublin’s rhythm. They will then look to turn them over in defence and break out with intent.”

It could then be an intriguing chess match at Jones' Road but the Dubs should have enough to break free of any stranglehold put in front of them to win at their ease.

Verdict: Dublin

Waterford v Tipperary - Munster SHC final

For the first time since 2012, Waterford and Tipperary have the honour of contesting the Munster final. There is no denying that the Déise have been the team of the year so far - unbeaten in all their games - with a league title also in the trophy cabinet. On 7 June, they comfortably disposed of Cork in the semi-final on a day when Maurice Shanahan took over the free-taking duties in the absence of the injured Pauric Mahony and notched an impressive 1-09.

Tipperary, for their part oozed class in dispatching Limerick in their semi-final, with Seamus Callanan and John 'Bubbles' O'Dwyer to the fore as they ran out 16-point winners. A year previous, Tipp were somewhat over eager to shove the Shannonsiders around and ended up giving away needless frees which cost dear.

However, Eamon O'Shea's side seem to be much more disciplined in 2015 and their first-half performance the last day was the best of the summer. They look like a team on a mission, a team determined to bring home silverware in this campaign. At times, however, they are casual and they did hit a barren period at the start of the second-half against Limerick.  

Waterford won't lack for desire on Sunday in what will be their biggest test so far this year and for their manager Derek McGrath a chance to really establish themselves at the top table.

Speaking to RTÉ sport after the win over Cork, he said: "We’re just delighted to be in a Munster final, it’s great progress for us. We have worked very hard to be there. Our summer is set up, it’s up to us to go and grab it.”

It's a tough one to call but Tipp's greater big-match experience in recent seasons should see them through.

Verdict: Tipperary        

Armagh v Galway - All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 2B

The Athletic Grounds is the venue as Armagh target revenge for the 2013 qualifier defeat at the hands of the Tribesmen. Galway prevailed by five points at Pearse Stadium on a steaming hot July evening two years ago. It was a surprising result at the time, with many going for the Orchard County to go on a longer run through the back door. In 2015, the target of an All-Ireland quarter-final berth is a realistic target for both sides.

Armagh were far from impressive in seeing off a wasteful Wicklow the last day, with two late Jamie Clarke goals giving the final scoreline a rather flattering look.

Galway haven't played since 14 June when they put in a game display against Mayo, eventually losing by four points.

Verdict: Armagh   

Fermanagh v Roscommon - All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 3A 

Roscommon got back on track after their surprising loss to Sligo with a comfortable 10-point win away to Cavan last weekend. Fermanagh also had things more or less their own way as they cruised past  Antrim at Brewster Park. Sean Quigley fired over 14 points for the Ernesiders. 

RTÉ analyst Kevn McStay feels Roscommon can still have a big say in this championship, though they won't get things easy against a Fermanagh unit that have improved during Pete McGrath's second year in charge. 

Verdict: Roscommon
