Allianz Football League results and reports on Saturday
70 MINUTES DEVIATION FROM COVID CHAOS
It had been a hectic week for the GAA with no ball kicked until the festival on Saturday.
The coronavirus continues to devastate everyday life in and around Ireland Senior Inter-county promotions were approved during Level 5 restrictions. It is likely that there will be bumps on the road.
Already this week we had transitions in both codes, the intermediate and premier junior camogie championships were decimated, the championships for minors were postponed indefinitely, a GPA demand for basic tests, an RTÉ poll that showed that the Majority of the Irish were against continuing the championship, and the games postponed bypasses and proposals that employers could impose inter-county restrictions on employees.
After all of this, it was a relief to see a Gaelic football break out.
The leagues are closing today before the All-Ireland Football Championship kicks off next week, which at that point seems a long way off.
Kerry secured the 21st title and the first since 2017 with a win over Donegal in Tralee on Saturday afternoon.
In the end, Meath are already doomed and Monaghan will join them if they fail to beat the already relegated royals.
If Seamus McEneaney’s men can get a result, they will overtake Mayo’s losers against Tyrone. A tie at Castlebar would be enough for Mickey Harte’s men, while Bantys Monaghan could survive by one point if Tyrone beat Mayo.
If both were defeated, Monaghan would remain in a duel against Mayo
Cork has a game ahead of them … in the truest sense of the word, with the last away game against Longford conceded by the Leinster side, Cork will rise by 15 points without having the opportunity to improve their impressive difference.
Down will join Cork in Division 2 regardless of today’s results as they have already defeated Derry. So in the event of a defeat at Drogheda and a Derry win at Tullamore, there would be a head-to-head battle.
Already on the ground, Louth is backed by Covid-hit Leitrim when Terry Hyland’s men fail to beat Tipperary at home.
If Leitrim wins and Offaly does not get anything at home for Derry, the final relegation place will be due to a battle between Tipp, Offaly and Leitrim in the “Mini League” points, so that there is still something to play in the third division.
