There's an extra reason to celebrate St Patrick's Day on Friday with two live TV fixtures on TG4.

Donegal who could officially be relegated from the Lidl National League Division 1 this weekend, welcome Dublin to Letterkenny for a 2pm start.

That game is followed by a Munster derby as Cork entertain Munster rivals Kerry at Páirc Uí Rinn with a 4pm throw-in time.

On Sunday Galway will hope to book their place in the 2023 Lidl National League Division 1 Final.

Victory against Mayo at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park (2pm) would guarantee that the Tribeswomen play already qualified Kerry at Croke Park on Saturday April 15.

That Connacht derby is one of four top-flight games over the St Patrick's weekend, with the clash of current champions Meath and Waterford also on Sunday (Ballinlough, 2pm).

It's all on the line for Donegal on Friday

Friday - Donegal v Dublin, Letterkenny – Live on TG4

Donegal are in all sorts of bother at the bottom of the table and if results go against them, the 2022 Finalists could be relegated.

Failure to beat Dublin, and Mayo picking up at least a point at home to Galway, would seal Donegal's fate.

Maxi Curran’s outfit are pointless after five games, with Mayo on three points.

Intriguingly, Mayo are scheduled to play Donegal in the final round of fixtures but it could be academic by then.

Dublin still harbour slim hopes of a Final place but will need to win and hope that Galway slip up away to Mayo on Sunday.

The Sky Blues are on nine points, four adrift of Galway, ahead of this weekend’s fixtures.

Donegal (v Dublin): A McColgan; S McFeely, E McGinley, E Gallagher (capt.); R Rodgers, N McLaughlin, T Hegarty; S Twohig, C Keon; N Carr, K Long, K Dowds; J McFadden, K Herron, C McGarvey.

Dublin (v Donegal): A Shiels; N Crowley, L Caffrey (capt.), J Tobin; L Magee, D Lawless, M Byrne; J Dunne, E O’Dowd; C O’Connor, O Nolan, E Gribben; K Sullivan, N Hetherton, H Tyrrell.

Maire O'Callaghan leads Cork against Kerry

Friday - Cork v Kerry; Páirc Uí Chaoimh, 4pm – Live on TG4

This fixture has been switched to Páirc Uí Chaoimh and with the pressure off both sides, this could be an open and entertaining game.

Kerry are already through to the Division 1 final on 15 April and can afford to shuffle their pack again, with seven changes in personnel.

The Kingdom’s squad depth is impressive and with a final coming down the tracks, players handed chances to impress will be eager to take them.

Cork would need a bizarre sequence of results to go their way over the final two rounds to make a Final, including Galway to lose their last two.

Cork, however, will be keen to see how they shape up against a Kerry side with a 100 per cent record to date.

And the Leesiders showed good form themselves last time out in a 5-11 to 0-1 rout of Donegal.

Cork (v Kerry): M O’Sullivan; M Duggan, E Meaney, R Phelan; S Kelly, M O’Callaghan (capt.), R Leahy; H Looney, S Leahy; L Coppinger, K Quirke, E Cleary; O Cahalane, E Kiely, C O’Sullivan.

Kerry (v Cork): C Butler; C O’Brien, E Lynch, A Dillane; C Lynch, E Costello, C Murphy; K Cronin, M O’Connell; N Carmody, A Galvin (capt.), A Harrington; F Tangney, R Dwyer, H O’Donoghue.

Meath take on Waterford

Sunday - Meath v Waterford; Ballinlough

Waterford, like Cork, would need an unlikely set of circumstances to go their way over the next two weekends to qualify for a league final.

But it's been an excellent campaign for the Déise nonetheless, with top-flight safety confirmed after flirting with relegation in recent times.

Waterford have two wins from five outings and there’s an excellent base built ahead of the summer’s championship campaign.

A loss to Galway last time out all but extinguished their hopes of contesting a final but Waterford will look back on this campaign with a huge degree of positivity.

They’d like to finish strongly, too, with Sunday’s fixture against League and All-Ireland champions Meath followed by a trip to Parnell Park to face Dublin on 26 March.

Meath’s campaign has been underwhelming but the Royals should be much stronger come championship time.

A win here would guarantee Division 1 football again next year.

Meath (v Waterford): M McGuirk; A Sheridan, M.K. Lynch, K Newe; N Gallogly, S Ennis, A Cleary; M O’Shaughnessy, A Minogue; M Thynne, S Melia, C Smyth; A O’Leary, S Grimes, N O’Sullivan.

Waterford (v Meath): E O’Brien; C Murray, M Dunford, A Murray; E Power, E Murray, H Power; K Hogan, A Waring; A O’Neill, A Fitzgerald, C McCarthy; Karen McGrath (capt.), B McMaugh, L McGregor.

Sunday - Mayo v Galway; Hastings Insurance MacHale Park, Castlebar

Louise Ward starts for Galway

A huge Connacht derby lies in store in Castlebar.

Mayo are not safe yet in Division 1 but may head into Sunday’s fixture knowing that even a point might be good enough to keep them up, depending on how Donegal fare against Dublin on Friday.

Mayo have won just once this season and are due to face Donegal to come in the final round of group ties, in what could be a straight relegation shoot-out.

Galway, meanwhile, know that a win will see them through to a Final clash with Kerry on April 15.

The Tribeswomen have put together an unbeaten campaign to date and they’d like to secure that place this weekend, while also getting one over on old rivals Mayo.

If Galway do make it through, they’ll face fellow Finalists Kerry in Round 7, before the two counties do it all over again at Croke Park next month.

Mayo (v Galway): L Brennan; É Ronayne, R Flynn, D Caldwell; C Needham, F McHale, K Sullivan (capt.); A Geraghty, S Cafferky; S Walsh, S Howley, M Cannon; L Cafferky, R Kearns, T Needham.

Galway (v Mayo): K Connolly; K Geraghty, S Ní Loingsigh, E Gavin; C Cooney, N Ward, A Molloy; A Davoren, O Divilly; L Coen, E Noone, L Noone; R Leonard, L Ward, K Slevin.
