Saturday: Cloudy with scattered outbreaks of light rain and drizzle extending southwards through the day. Cooler than recent days as moderate winds turn north to northeasterly, with maximum temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees in the northern half of the country and 10 to 12 degrees further south.
Sunday: Dry and cloudy at first, but some brighter spells developing during the afternoon. Quite a cool day, with maximum temperatures of 8 to 12 degrees, in light to moderate north to northeast winds. For more go to met.ie.
A fortnight ago, Louth's fixture with Westmeath in Division was rained off. Circumstances dictated that the game could not be refixed on either St Patrick's Day or the Bank Holiday Monday. With both winning their final regulation games against Down and Longford respectively, it meant that the refixture had to go ahead to decide who will join Laois in Division 2 next year.
Down cannot be promoted as their score difference is inferior to both Westmeath and Louth.
A draw will be good enough to send the Lake County through, while Wayne Kierans' men must win if they are make an instant return to the second tier. That said, it has been a good spring for the Wee County, who many had tipped for relegation before a ball was thrown in.
Bonus time ahead of 'worthwhile' challenge games
The hard work has been done for Donegal and Meath in Division 2 and Derry and Leitrim in Division 4 with promotion achieved.
All told, it would not be a surprise if the quartet combined brought at least 15,000 to Croker on Saturday afternoon.
Donegal have booked a return to Division 1 at the first attempt after being relegated last year, while Meath are back the top tier for the first time since 2006.
The sides met in round two of this year’s campaign when Donegal won by 1-13 to 0-14 in Ballybofey. It was a somewhat fortunate win for the hosts, who were without Michael Murphy. His return to the side and the form of Dáire Ó Baoill, Niall O'Donnell, Caolan McGonagle and Oisin Gallen have in part contributed to a strong finish from Declan Bonner's side.
For Meath midfielder Shane McEntee, this campaign was a marked contrast to many years where the county failed to find a consistent thread across both league and championship.
He told RTÉ Sport: "Meath have been associated with inconsistency in the last few years. Simple as that.
"During this league, we brought a level of consistency to our performance that wasn’t there previously.
"We improved in a number of areas as the league went on. All told we played seven games where we performed at a consistently good level.
"That was almost as satisfying as getting promoted."
You can expect Leitrim fans to make their presence felt at GAA HQ. The Tommy Murphy Cup final of 2006 was the last time the Connacht side last played at the venue.
Along with Derry, Terry Hyland's men achieved their promotion with two games to spare.
The sides met a fortnight ago when the Oakleafers came out on top by 2-16 to 1-12.
Mayo go again in search of Croke Park silverware
A fortnight on from when the rain pelted down in Tralee, Kerry and Mayo will renew their often spicy rivalry in this top-tier decider.
The Green and Red ran out winners at Austin Stack Park and in doing so breathed renewed life into a campaign that many thought had floundered after defeats to Dublin and Galway. In truth, Mayo were shocking against the Dubs, offering nothing in the way of intensity. Somewhat clueless would describe their attempts at getting an edge over their neighbours when they had the chance in Castlebar.
Matthew Ruane beats Brian Kelly this time, but what about that pass by @KevinMcLough?!?! Watch highlights @RTE2 Sunday night on Allianz League Sunday #RTEGAA https://t.co/Xy4PRzvrHL pic.twitter.com/sSayE7YZTi— The Sunday Game (@TheSundayGame) March 16, 2019
A 67th-minute goal from Matthew Ruane propelled Mayo to victory in the Kingdom - a deserved success in a game where they started without regulars like Lee Keegan, Colm Boyle, Paddy Durcan, Seamie O’Shea and Cillian O’Connor,
And last weekend, James Horan's troops sealed their ticket to the final when defeating Monaghan on home soil.
Let's cut to the case, it's all about winning Sam for Mayo. Horan is fashioning a side with that in mind and the likes of Ruane, Fionn McDonagh and Fergal Boland have provided an added dimension this spring. Also, some of the more senior players in the squad have found their spark again.
A defeat against the Kingdom won't define Mayo's season, but there are benefits to winning on Sunday, to have that winning feeling at GAA HQ for a side too accustomed to sob stories on the biggest stage.
It would top off a fine start to Horan's second coming.
For Mayo defender Chris Barrett, there is much to be happy with early on in how the manger is piecing things together.
"He has huge confidence in himself and he transfers that to the players," he told RTÉ Sport.
"There's a huge excitement around the place and collectively we are trying to get our confidence levels up to a place where we want them to be. Our progression in the league has shown that we are on the right track.
"Competitiveness in the squad is at an all-time high and that's the way James wants it.
"A lot of that has to do with the younger players that James has brought through who are now putting up their hands. Back in the day the challenge was to get on the 15, now it's a bonus to be on the match-day squad of 26."
Kerry have been the best team in Division 1. Their attack is frighteningly good and David Clifford is now back in action too. Much has been said about how more secure they are in defence and they have tightened up. They conceded 4-80 (same as Mayo) in this year's league compared to 10-97 last year.
That said, Tomás Ó Sé on League Sunday, while offering much praise still has some doubts over their last line of defence, and it was clearly evident in the second half in Tralee on 16 March that Mayo were dominating Kerry's full-back line.
For Kerry, this final will more than likely be their last real test before they hit the Super 8s on the weekend of 13/14 July. They will be keen to add a 21st league crown to their collection.
Mayo, who were last successful in 2001, are eyeing a 12th title.
With weather conditions set to be benign, an intriguing finale to the league is in prospect.
