We look back on some of the big moments and takeaways of the weekend in the National Football League, and recap on all of the GAA results.
Louth have all but secured their Division 2 status for another season after defeating struggling Kildare 2-11 to 0-12
It was Glenn Ryan’s side fourth defeat from five outings leaving them just a point above rock-bottom Limerick, whom they face next in a huge round-six encounter at the Gaelic Grounds.
Lake wash Saffs away
John Heslin rolled back the years scoring 1-12 (eight frees) as Westmeath had a comprehensive 4-27 to 0-8 win over Antrim.
St Kieran’s school opposition
St Kieran’s College are into a second successive All-Ireland PP Croke Cup Final after running out seven-point winners over Cashel Community School in Birr on Saturday: St Kieran’s College 3-13 Cashel Community School 2-9.
Presentation College Athenry will get the chance to finally lift the Croke Cup and make up for final defeats in 1976, 2018 and 2019 on St Patrick’s Day, after they condemned Thurles CBS to a second-consecutive heart-breaking one-point defeat.
Evan Niland’s brother Aaron scored nine points for the Galway school: Presentation College, Athenry 0-15 Thurles CBS 0-14.
May’ Day continues
They made hard work of it but Mayo’s form under Kevin McStay continues apace after a 1-16 to 2-11 win away to neighbours Roscommon.
The green over red led 1-12 to 0-7 with 20 minutes to go, but struggled from there on in as an Enda Smith goal revitalised the hosts, with Conor Cox adding another late on.
Davy Burke will have been frustrated at how long it took his team to get into the game — they trailled 0-7 to 0-0 after 18 minutes — but will be encouraged by the fightback.
Cillian O’Connor’s impressive display is another boost for McStay as he continues to juggle fresh faces with the more experienced men in his ranks.
Top of the table, Mayo are sitting pretty just now.
