GAA coach Steven Poacher and former Mayo star Enda Varley get stuck into the week’s big Gaelic football talking points

GAA coach Steven Poacher and former Mayo star Enda Varley get stuck into the week’s big Gaelic football talking points.

Mayo, Galway, Derry, Monaghan and Donegal are all through to the knock-out stages of the All-Ireland football championship, with the other seven places to be settled in Round 3 of the ‘round robin’ next weekend.

It will also decide which four counties qualify directly for the quarterfinals and which eight will play off in preliminary quarterfinals.

Clare are the only county who cannot qualify for the knock-out stages as they are three points behind Derry and Monaghan and two behind Donegal.

However, since they lost to Donegal in the first round, they will lose out irrespective of results in the final round.

Galway and Mayo are the only counties on full points after two rounds while Clare, Louth and Westmeath are the only counties with 0 points.

It all adds up to a dramatic finale next weekend!

The action continues in the Tailteann Cup this Saturday with four preliminary quarterfinals to decide who joins group winners Cavan, Meath, Limerick and Antrim in the last eight.
