Clare wrapped up their first win in the second tier of the football league in 15 years with a 2-11 to 0-11 win over Down.

The newcomers to the second tier built up a 13-point advantage by the 40th minute, with goals from Keelan Sexton and David Tubridy setting them on the way to victory.

It means a ninth straight league defeat for Down, who might well be heading for Division 3 if this run of form continues.

Galway performed much better after the break to take the spoils in Brewster Park. 1-2 from Damien Comer in the second-half saw the Tribesmen overturn a four point half-time deficit and romp to a 1-13 to 0-10 win.

Finally, Meath bounced back from their opening day trouncing by Kildare by handing out a thumping of their own to Derry.

Andy McEntee’s men trailed by two points – 0-4 to 0-6 – after a dull opening 35 minutes, before they turned on the style after the restart.

Cillian O’Sullivan helped himself to 2-2 while Bryan McMahon added a goal as Meath cantered home on a scoreline of 3-15 to 0-9 in Navan.
