It’s the final round of National League games this weekend and the fate of some teams is already sealed.

It’s been a mixed bag for Ulster teams. Down have been relegated to Division Two, Tyrone have been promoted to Division One while Antrim have been promoted to Division Three.

There is still plenty to be decided in Division 1 with Donegal and Monaghan still capable of reaching the semi-finals or be relegated.

Monaghan’s best chance of avoiding the drop would be for them to beat Donegal and hope that Kerry beat Cork in Tralee.

It’s even more complicated in Division Two but Cavan know a win over Galway will earn them promotion.

At the other end Derry look safe but Armagh and Fermanagh could yet find themselves staring at the trapdoor if results go against them.


Div 1: Monaghan v Donegal, Mayo v Down

Div 2: Fermanagh v Tyrone, Cavan v Galway, Armagh v Derry

Div 4: Antrim v Louth
