All live games also available on GAAGO.

Saturday: Windy or possibly stormy for a time in the northwest. Widespread heavy rain will give way in many areas to sunny spells and scattered squally showers. However the showers are likely to be prolonged and heavy in parts of the north and northwest with some hail and local thundery. Chilly in temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees. Strong to gale force winds will be very squally for a time in the northwest, but winds will moderate later 
Sunday: It looks like it will be bright, with sunny spells and well scattered showers. But there is a threat of cloudy wet weather affecting Munster and south Leinster for a time. Fresh, with highs of 8 to 10 C in moderate southwest to west winds. For more go to

Reasons to be cheerful for some but for others....

And so we are turning for home in this year's football league. Three rounds to go, and while much is still to be decided there is no doubt there are some counties feeling a lot more happier about themselves than others.

Peter Keane

Kerry manager Peter Keane, speaking to RTÉ Sport in January about how serious his side will take the league was succinct in his response when saying: "Is the National League of utmost importance to us? No it's not."

Well, as things stand, a win over Monaghan on Sunday would more or less leave them in a league final on 31 March. And that perhaps will be their last game of real intensity before the Super 8s, as most expect them to stride through Munster again. 

Ultimately, for Kerry, it's all about winning the big prizes. Edging out Galway last weekend in a game that failed to hit the heights is one of those troughs you have to emerge from - it should set you up to handle more difficult assignments. Paul Geaney and James O'Donoghue were absent, but then you had the return of Tommy Walsh to the fray to assist the young guns that are making their mark in the senior grade.

One of those is Tomás Ó Sé, and a brilliant individual score from the debutant lit up the Tuam encounter late on. The An Ghaeltacht player also laid on the winning point for Tom O’Sullivan in injury-time.  

The Farney head south on Sunday and the wheels have very much came of their charge since they accounted for Dublin on the opening weekend. They went more than half an hour without a score against Tyrone last Saturday and more often than not were opened up far too easily by the Red Hand.

As for Mickey Harte's men, well they have certainly have upped it in recent weeks and a win over Cavan in Round 5 will further ease any relegation worries. The latter finally got points on the board when accounting for Sunday, with their manager Mickey Graham delighted that they put in a strong 20-minute second-half performance to see them over the line. 

Did you know

It's 2002 since Roscommon last beat Dublin in a competitive game - a league encounter that saw the Rossies prevail on a 2-12 to 0-16 scoreline at Parnell Park. 

Can they end that 17-year run without a victory at the Hyde Park on Sunday. Well manager Anthony Cunningham felt their performance was not "at Division 1 level" against Cavan and added that they will have to look into their souls in preparation for the Dubs. 


And then we have Mayo v Galway.

Soul searching of sorts for Mayo after their no-show against the Dubs last weekend.

Apart from Rob Hennelly's heroics in goal, the Green and Red would have got a greater trimming. Lacking any kind of intensity and far too often running into tackles were the negatives that stuck out the most for James Horan's side.

Indeed, it was surprising to hear the manager afterwards talk about being caught out by Dublin's "intensity and a physicality". What did he expect.

Still, Mayo have it in their own hands to get to a league final - win their remaining three games.

Did you know  

Mayo's last win over Galway in a competitive game was in the 2015 Connacht semi-final. 

Along with Kerry, Fermanagh, Leitrim and Derry are still unbeaten. 


Some expected the Ernesiders to struggle in Division 2, but they certainly underlined their intention with a three-point win over Donegal last Sunday. Rory Gallagher's men were superb throughout but especially in the second half as they hit 0-09, 0-08 from play. So, it's perhaps too simplistic to say that Fermanagh are ultra defensive.

This year they have opened up a little bit and are creating on average more than 20 scoring chances per game.

Reaching Division 1 after getting to an Ulster final last summer would be more credit in Gallagher's bank.

Ryan McCluskey, who retired last year after 19 seasons playing for the Erne County, is not surprised that his former colleagues are on a promotion charge.

He told RTÉ Sport: "There were sections of the supporters who were voicing concern after the McKenna Cup.

"I was amazed by that. Honest to God, I was saying at the start of the year that I thought Fermanagh could get themselves involved in the fight for promotion."

Next up is Clare in Enniskillen. That's winnable. It's a competitive section, with three Munster counties, as of now in danger of going down. Much focus then on the meeting of Tipp and Cork in Thurles.


In Division 3, Louth surprisingly lead the way on scoring difference from Down, and along with Westmeath, Longford and Laois, are all in the mix for promotion.

Sligo are the only county in the league without a point and they desperately need to beat Westmeath in Collooney. Carlow, after the highs of last year, will be firmly in a relegation scrap if they don't get something tangible from their home game against the Wee County.


It's more a case of promotion here we come if Leitrim and Derry record wins over London and Limerick respectively.
