THE WEATHER PLAYED havoc with the fixture schedule tonight, as just two out of six Dublin SFC games went ahead.

Of the games that were played, Fingal Ravens narrowly lost out to Clontarf, with the final score 3-3 to 0-13.

Ian Kavanagh and Eoin O’Flaherty were on target for Fingal, who endured a one-point loss despite scoring three goals, while their opponents managed none.

In addition, Na Fianna prevailed against Tomas Daibhis, winning 0-16 to 1-9 in O’Toole Park.

A tight first-half saw Tomas Daibhis leading 1-6 to 0-8 at the break, however their opponents ultimately fought back to earn a four-point victory.

Meanwhile, Raheny v Mearnog, St Vincents v Naomh Olaf, Lucan v Castleknock and Slyvesters v St Pats were all called off due to bad weather.
