Dublin’s bid for a third successive Allianz Football League crown is still on after they edged past a dogged Monaghan by 0-17 to 0-16 at Croke Park.

The four late points for Jim Gavin’s side put them three clear but Monaghan continued to fight, reducing the gap to just a single point before they ran out of time.

Cork defeated Donegal by 4-11 to 0-19 at Croke Park to book a berth in the Allianz Football League’s Division 1 final.

After Hurley had kicked the opening point, scores from Anthony Thompson, Michael Murphy and Patrick McBrearty placed Donegal in the ascendancy.

Derek McGrath’s side had to be at their best to see off a tenacious Wexford before emerging six-point winners but O’Mahony’s free-taking ability (he converted eleven) ensured the Deise emerged victorious.
