WEATHER

It's not looking promising. There were three Allianz Football League games called off last week due to Storm Ciara and Dennis could well outdo her.

Saturday: There will be very heavy rain countrywide, with flooding in places, strong and very squally south or south to southwest winds with gales or strong gales on coasts. Winds will moderate inland through the afternoon and evening. Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees.

Sunday: Extremely windy and very showery with stormy conditions in Atlantic coastal counties, especially northwestern counties, with very severe and squally winds. Widespread heavy rain and hail showers with thundery downpours at times, but drier and brighter at times in parts of the east and south. Cold with afternoon temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees Celsius with a very significant wind chill factor.

Division 1A - 100% records on the line, Tipp up against it

Jamie Barron attemps to block CIan Lynch last summer

Last year's Division 1 finalists Limerick and Waterford meet at the LIT Gaelic Grounds on Saturday having both won their opening two games.

They also have the same scoring difference of +10.

New Waterford boss Liam Cahill will have been pleased with the efforts of his side in their victories over Cork and Westmeath but Limerick will present the stiffest test yet to the new regime.

John Kiely's men handed out two heavy beatings to the Déise last year, defeating them by eight points in the League decider and 2-24 to 0-10 in the Munster round-robin clash at Walsh Park so the Waterford players might feel they have a point to prove.

UPDATE: Storm Dennis has forced the Limerick-Waterford game to be re-scheduled for Sunday 2pm.

Limerick conceded just 32 points and no goals combined in their wins over Tipperary and Galway.

The latter two sides face off in Pearse Stadium on Sunday with All-Ireland champions Tipp knowing that defeat would leave them in real danger of missing out on the knock-out stages.

Having lost to Limerick and Cork, they are joint bottom of the table with Westmeath, two points behind Galway and Cork and four behind Waterford and Limerick.

"If you lose the first two league games, everyone starts to say 'Sure we won't worry about the league at all now’ and it’s okay to be losing," former Tipperary goalkeeper Brendan Cummins  told the RTE GAA podcast recently.

"I know Liam (Sheedy). That is absolutely not the way he’s going to be thinking. He’ll lay down the gauntlet to players, there’s no doubt about that.

"We’re looking to try to do this back-to-back, you don’t want any negativity around the group by the time we get to the end of February. You just don't want to be getting beaten all the time."

This will be the first League meeting between the teams since the 2017 final, which Galway won by 16 on the way to sealing a league and All-Ireland double.

The Tribesmen's star forward Joe Canning will be available for selection despite having to go off with an elbow injury in the recent loss to Limerick.

Cork, who are bidding to win the League title for the first time since 1998, face Westmeath in Mullingar for the second time in seven months, having beaten them by 1-40 to 0-20 in last year’s All-Ireland preliminary quarter-final.

Cork have won one and lost one while Westmeath are 0 from 2 and on -26 in score difference.

Rebel stars Mark Coleman and Shane Kingston could feeature after helping UCC to retain the Fitzgibbon Cup midweek.

Division 1B - Leinster rivals' rematch

Last year's Leinster finalists meet at Chadwicks Wexford Park as Davy Fitzgerald's men aim to extend their unbeaten run against Kilkenny to six games.

They beat the Cats in the 2019 and 2020 Walsh Cup and in last year’s 1A League campaign, drew with them in the dramatic conclusion to the Leinster group stage last year before then triumphing in the Leinster final.

It means Brian Cody’s men are seeking a first success over their neighbours since their one-point win in the 2018 Leinster championship but Kilkenny have made a flying start to the League, scoring 3-21 in victory over both Carlow and Dublin.

Wexford beat Laois comfortably but were edged out by Fitzgerald's native Clare a fortnight ago.

The Banner have made a bright start under Brian Lohan and will fancy themselves to take a step nearer the knock-out stages against Laois in Ennis.

Eddie Brennan's side (4-33) have scored almost as much as Clare (1-45) but the Munster men have conceded just 0-29 in their wins over Wexford and Carlow, compared to 6-45 for Laois in defeat to Wexford and Dublin.

Captain John Conlan misses out for Clare after his straight red card against the Model men last time out.

Carlow and Dublin meet for the second time in five weeks – Mattie Kenny’s men won by 3-20 to 0-18 in the Walsh Cup in early January, having also beaten Carlow in last year’s Leinster championship.

Carlow need a good performance at Netwatch Cullen Park to avoid losing further ground at the bottom of the table. Cormac Bonnar's side have a scoring difference of -36 following two heavy defeats.

Division 2A - Promotion race heats up

It’s a crucial round in the battle to reach the final and stay in promotion contention, with Antrim and Kerry (both on four points) taking on Offaly (2pts) and Meath (2 pts) respectively.

Michael Fennelly's Offaly host Antrim, who lead Kerry on scoring difference at the top, in what will be a big crowd-puller in Tullamore. Antrim beat Offaly by two points in last year’s Joe McDonagh Cup. 

Kerry will be away to Meath, having beaten the Royals by 3-15 to 0-18 in last year’s Allianz League.

The losers of Wicklow v Mayo, both of whom were beaten in their first two games, will be in serious relegation trouble so the stakes are high for their meeting in Castlebar.

In Division 2B, Derry and Kildare have both won their opening two games, which makes their clash in Celtic Park crucial in the promotion race. Kildare have scored a massive 7-45 in their opening two games, while conceding just 0-21. It leaves them with a scoring difference of +45 points, 39 better than Derry.

Warwickshire, who have a points difference of -45 points at the bottom of the table, take on Down (2pts), who will be hoping to get back in the promotion race. So too will Roscommon (2pts), who host London (0) in Dr. Hyde Park.

Longford and Armagh, both of whom have won their opening two games, meet in Glennon Brothers Pearse Park, where the winners will be prime position to reach the Division 3A final. Longford have done especially well after coming up from 3B this season, while Armagh, who were beaten in last year’s 3A final, will be determined to stay on the promotion trail.

With one, or both, of the top two set to drop points, Donegal and Tyrone (both on four points) will be hoping to make up ground. Monaghan beat Tyrone by 11 last year when Donegal (2B) and Louth (3A) were in different divisions.

Sligo, Lancashire, Cavan and Fermanagh are all on two points in Division 3B but the latter three have each played two games, whereas Sligo have played only one, as have Leitrim, who have no points. Cavan beat Leitrim by a point in last year’s Allianz League, the same margin by which Sligo edged out Fermanagh.
