Hello everyone and welcome to our Sunday match tracker.

Here is all the football we have to look forward to today.

Division One

Derry vs Kerry

Mayo vs Tyrone

Monaghan vs Cork


Division Two

Westmeath vs Galway


Division Three

Tipperary vs Limerick

Louth vs Clare

Sligo vs Fermanagh

Wexford vs Armagh


Division Four

Longford vs Antrim

Offaly vs Waterford

Carlow vs London

Wicklow vs Leitrim

All the games kick off at 2pm except Carlow vs London, which started at 1pm. Carlow currently lead that game by 0-02 to 0-01.

There has already been one Division One game played this weekend as Dublin (partly) avenged last August’s All-Ireland semi-final loss to Donegal with a 2-10 to 0-11 win.

And in Division Two, there were wins for Meath, Roscommon and Cavan last night.

Derry vs Kerry will be an important game since both sides started with losses last weekend. Likewise, Tyrone won’t want to lose again when they travel to Mayo. Two opening losses would be hard to come back from in such a competitive league.

It is half time in Carlow and London lead by 0-05 to 0-04 in their Division Four clash.

The Cork team arrived earlier for their game against Monaghan.
