(All fixtures to be played on Sunday, 1st March)


Division 1a:


Armagh v Mayo

Keady Dwyers, 2.00pm, (E. O’Hare)

Armagh desperately need a win if they are to stake a claim for a play-off berth. Their only victory to date has come against struggling Donegal so Mayo will not fear a trip to the Orchard County. Mayo have posted some impressive scores of late and with Cora Staunton in full flow they should comfortably account for Armagh.


Kerry v Laois

Castleisland, 1.00pm, (R. O’Connor)

Laois stuttered against Tyrone but bounced back with an impressive win over Armagh and a win over Kerry would cement a top seeding in the play-offs. Kerry shipped a rake of points against Mayo and Laois have notched up some high scoring tallies with Tracey Lawlor and Martina Dunne in fine form. If Laois prove they can travel they could be in with a chance of the win.


Donegal v Tyrone

Castlefin, 3.15pm, (L. McDonagh)

Donegal look destined for the drop and despite an improved display against Mayo they are yet to register a win. Tyrone have been a bit Jekyll and Hyde this season with two impressive victories and one abject performance against Kerry which resulted in a 9 point loss. Tyrone’s fire power should see them secure another three points and a place in the play-offs.


Division 1b:


Dublin v Cork

Naomh Mearnóg, 2.00pm, (D. McEnery)

The tie of the weekend pits the champions Cork against a Dublin side unbeaten in the league in over a year. Cork have begun to ramp up their performances so the outcome of this game will give the Jackies a true reflection of the progress they have made since last year. Cork should win but the margin of victory may not be as large as everyone expects.


Galway v Monaghan

Dunmore 2.00pm, (D. Corcoran)

Galway are in serious freefall and with no wins from three games they are running out of fixtures to save their Division 1 status. Monaghan recovered from their opening round defeat with back to back victories and are beginning to look like the side which competed in last year’s All Ireland final. Monaghan should heap further pressure on the Tribeswomen and make it four losses on the trot for Galway.


Clare v Kildare

Lissycasey, 2.00pm, (M.J. O’Keeffe)

Relegation is looking inevitable for Kildare as they struggle to compete at this level. Clare have one victory in the bag and another would ensure their Division 1 status and possibly secure them their place in the play-offs. At home, Clare will probably have too much firepower for the beleaguered lilywhites.
