Your guide to all the action from this weekend’s Gaelic Games.

SATURDAY

Alliance FL

department 4

dr Cullen Park: Carlow v Wexford, 1.0, B Tiernan (Dublin)

There is nothing to play here between two teams that have lost their pace in the division.

Verdict: Wexford

Kingspan Breffni Park: Cavan vs Waterford, 6.0, K Faloon (Armagh)

Cavan needs no reminder of Waterford’s last league visit when the home side required a result in order to be promoted. Despite being pushed to the limit last time in London, the hosts will get the job done here.

Verdict: Cavan

Sample stadium: Tipperary v London, 7.0, P Maguire (Longford)

London was a revelation in this league, with three wins that became almost four last time out against Cavan. But Tipperary is back on the rise, even as she worries an injury to top scorer Conor Sweeney.

Verdict: Tipperary

Alliance HL

Division 1 semifinals

Pairc Ui Chaoimh: Cork v Kilkenny, 7.15, S Stack (Dublin), RTÉ 2

Kilkenny’s competitiveness is undeniable and the signings of Mikey Butler, David Blanchfield and Cian Kenny have breathed new life into them, while Pádraig Walsh’s move to centre-forward has so far worked. But at home, in front of an expectant crowd, Cork’s pace on the field can again be noticed.

Verdict: cork

Division 1 relegation game

Pairc Tailteann: Antrim vs. Offaly, 3.0, R. McGann (Clare)

Antrim’s performances were better in 1B than Offaly’s in 1A, although 1A was more competitive. Even with Neil McManus out, Antrim’s form against Kilkenny and Waterford can prop them up enough to survive.

Verdict: Antrim

Division 2A Semifinals

Cusack Park, Mullingar: Westmeath vs. Kerry, 1.0, R. Fitzsimons (Offaly)

By any measure, this is close, but home field advantage can tell.

Verdict: Westmeath

Division 2B Semifinals

Letterkenny: Donegal v Sligo, 2.0, K Parke (Antrim)

Sligo continues to make progress but Donegal can repeat their regular win.

Verdict: Donegal

Relegated to Division 2B

game start

O’Connor Park, Tullamore: Mayo-Wicklow, 12.30pm, C Flynn (Westmeath)

Verdict: Mayo

Division 3A Semifinals*

dr Hyde Park: Roscommon v Armagh, 2.0, B Keon (Galway)

Verdict: Roscommon

Pearse Park: Longford vs. Leitrim, 2.30, J. Clarke (Cavan)

Verdict: Leitrim

SUNDAY

Alliance HL

Division 1 semifinals

Nowlan Park: Wexford v Waterford, 3.45, J Keenan (Wicklow), TG4

Wexford have done everything that was asked of them and more in Division 1A but despite their loss to Kilkenny, Waterford’s takedown of Tipperary in the previous round is probably the best benchmark. They’ve won too few leagues as a district to turn their noses up on this occasion.

Verdict: Waterford

alliance FL (2.0 unless otherwise noted)**

department 1

Letterkenny: Donegal v Armagh, 1.45, P Neilan (Roscommon)

There are plenty of marks to be made for both sides ahead of a Championship meeting four weeks later, but Donegal may need more here as key players like Michael Murphy (below), Patrick McBrearty and Ryan McHugh bounce back on form.

Verdict: Donegal

Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney: Kerry vs Tyrone, 1.45, D Coldrick (Meath)

Jack O’Connor has resisted the temptation to experiment despite booking his place in the league finals, with David Clifford returning to the starting XI. Tyrone’s distress can energize them but Kerry doesn’t look ready to take her foot off the gas.

Verdict: Kerry

Couple Seán MacDiarmada, Carrick-on-Shannon: Mayo v Kildare, 1.45, D Gough (Meath)

Mayo gets no return from her attack despite her high place in the division. They picked a strong team here and don’t want to lose a third game in a row before the championship. What’s not to like about a prospective league final against Kerry? Kildare is not allowed to start Daniel Flynn.

Verdict: Mayo

Clones: Monaghan v Dublin, 1.45, TG4, N. Mooney (Cavan)

Dublin are back on the rise with back-to-back wins and that kind of momentum will be too much for a Monaghan side who conceded 24 goals last time out.

Verdict: Dublin

department 2

Couple Esler: Down vs Clare, A Nolan (Wicklow)

Down are already relegated, Clare is all but safe but should bring more to end the campaign strong.

Verdict: Clara

Pairc Tailteann: Meath v Derry, M. Deegan (Laois)

Derry will have Shane McGuigan back, although Oisín McWilliams is out with a broken jaw. Meath will want to make a positive comment.

Verdict: Derry

O’Connor Park: Offaly v Cork, N Cullen (Fermanagh)

Offaly may have saved a little with a view to this game last weekend, but Cork gained impetus with a strong finish against Down.

Conclusion: cork

dr Hyde Park: Roscommon vs Galway, D O’Mahoney (Tipperary)

The question for Galway is whether they might want to play Roscommon three times this year, with a possible provincial semi-final in the mix. Paul Conroy is suspended, Damien Comer and other key players are not allowed to play. Roscommon is a different team than last year.

Verdict: Roscommon

department 3

Corrigan Park: Antrim vs. Westmeath, J. Molloy (Galway)

Westmeath is showing some signs of wear but can muster enough here hoping Fermanagh will do them a favor elsewhere.

Verdict: Westmeath

O’Moore Park: Laois vs. Longford, B. Griffin (Kerry)

Laois has faltered after a strong start to the season but Longford were turned around by Wicklow last time out.

Verdict: Laois

Gaelic reasons: Limerick vs. Fermanagh, J. Henry (Mayo)

Limerick’s fate is in their own hands – win and they’re in Division 2. After showing composure against Laois, they will feel confident again against a safe Fermanagh side in Division 3.

Verdict: Limerick

Augrim: Wicklow vs. Louth, P. Faoon (below)

Louth are all but certain of promotion and the momentum they have will carry that.

Verdict: Loud

department 4

Markievicz Park: Sligo v Leitrim, 1.0, S Mulhare (Laois)

If this is played their fate as Division 4 teams in 2023 may be sealed but local pride just barely points to Sligo.

Verdict: Sligo

Camogie
