Allianz FL Division 1 
Down v Donegal, Páirc Esler
1900 Dublin v Kerry, Croke Park

Overlooking the city of Belfast are Donegal’s Patrick McBrearty and Caolan Mooney of Down, pictured at the launch of the league. 

Dublin are going for a fourth Division 1 title on the trot. Kerry are the most successful team in football league history with 19 titles, the last of those coming in 2009. Down have four league crowns to their name, with three of those coming in a golden period for the county in the 1960s. Donegal's only success in the competition came in 2007 when they defeated Mayo in the decider.

Allianz FL Division 1
Cork v Mayo, Páirc Uí Rinn
1400 Roscommon v Monaghan, Kiltoom 

Cork, Mayo and Roscommon will have new management on view this weekend. Mayo are third in the league roll of honour with 11 titles. Their last win came in 2001 in a year when four Connacht counties contested the semi-finals as Galway, Roscommon and Sligo joined the Green and Red in the last four. Monaghan have been one of the form teams during the spring in recent seasons after claiming Division 2 and Division 3 titles. However, back in 1985 they reigned supreme over everybody else in a season where they also won an Ulster title.  

Allianz FL Division 2
1400 Laois v Galway, O'Moore Park
1400 Meath v Armagh, Pairc Tailteann
1400 Tyrone v Cavan, Healy Park
1415 Derry v Fermanagh, Celtic Park

Division 2 contains five Ulster teams and is sure to be keenly contested. Tyrone are the bookies' favourites to top the section following on from a decent end to the 2015 championship season. In terms of league titles, Derry are the most successful of the northern counties with six wins and play host to Pete McGrath's Fermanagh on the opening weekend. Many are tipping to Galway to do well in the weeks ahead, though it's surprising that a county with such a strong footballing tradition has only won three league titles  

Allianz FL Division 3
1400 Clare v Sligo, Miltown Malbay
1400 Limerick v Tipperary, Kilmallock
1400 Offaly v Longford, O'Connor Park
1400 Westmeath v Kildare, Cusack Park

Following successive relegations, Kildare and Westmeath now find themselves in the third tier. The pair are fancied by many to go up, but much focus will be on their opening-day clash in Mullingar. To the victor go the spoils, but for the vanquished, well let's say the room for error diminishes that little bit thereafter. Offaly and Longford both came up from the bottom tier on 2015 and are the only sides in the section who have enjoyed top-flight league success. Offaly, under Tommy Lyons, were victorious in 1998, while Longford had their day in the sun in 1966.   

Allianz FL Division 4
1300 Louth v London, Gaelic Grounds, Drogheda
1400 Carlow v Antrim, Dr Cullen Park
1400 Wexford v Leitrim, Bellefield
1400 Wicklow v Waterford, Aughrim

It's all about escaping from the basement here. In 2005, Wexford contested a Division 1 final in 2005 to begin what was a productive era for the county that in time saw them contest an All-Ireland semi-final. David Power's side look the best equipped to top the division, with Antrim and Louth leading the chase to join them in the promotion stakes.  

Kehoe Cup Round 3
1400 Longford v Kildare, Pearse Park
1400 St Pats/Mater Dei v Trinity College, Drumcondra
1400 Fingal v Wicklow, Swords
1400 Louth v Maynooth Unversity, Darver

Saturday will be a cold day with temperatures staying low all day in a moderate to fresh southwest wind. Many places will remain dry but showers will be frequent and wintry in the west and north, extending further east during the afternoon on the fresh breeze. Sunday will be fair at first but rain will develop as light to moderate south to southwest winds increase. Temperatures will once again rise steadily through the day.
