WEATHER

Saturday calls for heavy or heavy showers from the west in all areas with the risk of hail and isolated thunderstorms. A stormy day with fresh and gusty southwest winds, strong on the coastal areas, especially in the west. Highest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees. Not ideal football weather!

On Sunday there are more stormy thunderstorms with the risk of hail, which are most common in the Atlantic countries. Some sunny sections with the driest and brightest conditions in the eastern half of Ireland. The highest temperatures range from a cool 9 to 12 degrees with fresh west to southwest wind.

70 MINUTES DEVIATION FROM COVID CHAOS

Jack O’Connor is holding his half-time team talk

It’s been a hectic week for the GAA with no ball kicked (a couple of sliotars swaddled at U20 level but that’s done for now).

The coronavirus continues to devastate everyday life in and around Ireland Senior Inter-county promotions were approved during Level 5 restrictions. Bumps are likely to appear on the road.

Already this week we had in both Codes walkovers, the intermediate and premier junior camogie championships were decimated, the championships for minors were postponed indefinitely, a GPA request for basic tests, an RTÉ poll that showed that the Majority of Irish opposed the continuation of the championship, the games were postponed to avoid bypasses and suggestions that employers could impose restrictions on employees between counties.

After all of this, it will be a relief when a Gaelic football breaks out.

The leagues close this weekend before the All-Ireland Football Championship kicks off next week, which at that point seems a long way off.

DEPARTMENT 1

Kerry secured their 21st title and the first since 2017 with a win against Donegal in Tralee on Saturday afternoon.

The other three games will not be played until 24 hours later, so a victory for Peter Keane’s men will bring superlative to Super Sunday a little.

Donegal would finish tied with Kerry if they got a win. In the event of a draw between Dublin and Galway on Sunday, the title would be decided by the difference in points between the four teams in the games between them.

In a tie at Tralee, the title would be due to a point difference between Kerry and the Galway winners against Dublin.

It will be far less confusing when Kerry wins or loses and Dublin or Galway get a result at Pearse Stadium.

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

DEPARTMENT 2

Roscommon has Covid concerns of their own this week, but given their current position, they’re determined to travel to Kingspan Breffni for their match against Cavan. A win or a draw ensures that Anthony Cunningham’s side returns to the top division.

Even defeat would not be a death knell to their prospects as both Armagh and Westmeath would have to win their assignments to Clare and Kildare to be tied.

However, Clare and Kildare are still out on the hunt along with Cavan, so Division 2 has plenty of intrigue on the final day as always, with seven of the eight teams striving for something.

Only Fermanagh is sentenced to be dropped and can take Laois with them if they beat Mick Quirke’s crew at Brewster Park. If the Midlanders win, they will overtake Kildare, Cavan and Clare if they lose their matches.

Don’t try to predict it. Keep in mind that home wins for Cavan, Clare and Kildare would mean that these teams finish by eight points, one behind Roscommon but ahead of current second and third placed teams Armagh and Westmeath.

Calculator ready.

DEPARTMENT 3

Cork have one game left… 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 goal difference.

Down will move to Cork in Division 2 on Sunday regardless of the results as they have already defeated Derry. In the event of a loss at Drogheda and a Derry win at Tullamore, Down would go head-to-head.

Louth is already down and backed by Covid-hit Leitrim when Terry Hyland’s men fail to beat Tipperary at home.

If Leitrim wins and Offaly gets nothing at home for Derry, the last relegation place will amount to a difference between Tipp, Offaly and Leitrim in the “Mini League” point difference, so that there is still something to play in the third division.

DEPARTMENT 4

The battle in the basement was hit harder by coronavirus than any other. London was knocked out of the final two rounds, which left Waterford and Carlow with one game less, and then Waterford had a will – they won’t – about their game in Antrim (which is now in Dundalk).

The winners of the Southeast Clasico between Wexford and Wicklow are guaranteed promotion. Limerick is in the box to join them in case they win in Sligo.

Antrim is hoping Limerick will slip which would open the door to Division 3 for the Safranos, provided Wexford and Wicklow don’t pull which would result in a mini-league which would be interesting given Antrim’s big winners over Wexford but got on downright downcast from Wicklow last day.
