I know our interest in this year’s League may not be what it was a few weeks ago but this weekend sees the culmination of the spring competition, with the four Divisional finals taking place at Croke Park on Saturday and Sunday.
Most attention will obviously be focused on the Division One decider with Dublin hot favourites to beat Derry and so retain the title they won last year. If they succeed in doing this, the Dubs will complete a League-Championship-League sequence of victories, as Cork did back in 2010-11, but Derry – who on Sunday will be just three weeks out from their championship opener against Donegal – surely aren’t coming to the capital just for the day out. This one could prove to be a bit closer, I reckon, than those 1/4 odds on Dublin might suggest.
Time for a vote on how you think this one will go:
