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.

However, they had to dig deep and needed four late points without reply from their top scorer Dean Rock, Emmet O’Conghaile and Jack McCaffrey to overcome an impressive Monaghan side.

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.

Man of the Match Conor McManus starred for the Ulster side, grabbing eight points in an all-a... Read More

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.

Colm O’Neill netted twice, while Tom Clancy and Brian Hurley also struck goals, as the Rebels progressed to their fourth league final in six years.

The game was level at the break, but Cork’s ability to bulge the net ultimately denied the Ulstermen, who had scraped into the semi-finals at the expense of Mayo and Kerry.

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

It was a busy day of action in all four divisions of the Allianz Football League with the semi-final line-up and a number of promotion and relegation spots up for decision.

There were victories for Dublin and Derry against Monaghan and Cork respectively in Division One, while the games between Mayo and Donegal at MacHale Park and Tyrone and Kerry at Healy Park ended all square.

The results mean that Cork will play Donegal and Dublin face Monaghan in the semi-finals next weekend, while Tyrone and Derry are relegated.

Setanta Sports’ GAA contributor Ger McCarthy reviews the latest round of Allianz Football League action and offers up another list of this past weekend’s winners and losers.


Michael Murphy
Donegal’s star forward looked back to his marauding best in his side’s comprehensive 1-13 to 0-6 victory over Tyrone this past weekend by converting five frees in testing conditions. Murphy’s all-round game will also have pleased manager Rory Gallagher in a result that should act a big psychological boost ahead of the two county’s Ulster Championship showdown in May.

Setanta Sports’ GAA contributor Ger McCarthy assesses the winners and losers from the final round of Allianz Hurling League fixtures ahead of next weekend’s quarter-finals.


Pauric O’Mahony
The Ballygunner centre-forward had an afternoon to remember at Innovate Wexford Park on Sunday, contributing 0-13 of Waterford’s winning total and helping secure promotion back to Allianz Division 1A in 2016.

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.

Davy Fitzgerald

Having appeared in this column’s losers section the previous week it is only fair to move Davy Fitzgerald into the winners enclosure (at least for another seven days) following the Clare hurlers gutsy victory over Dublin.

A traumatic week by any inter-county manager’s standards that drew negative media headlines following Nicky O’Connell and Davy O’Halloran’s ... Read More
