Poll: Who do you think will win this year’s Division 3 football league title?
4 Leinster teams are in Division 3 this year, in a group that also contains 2016 championship surprise packets Tipperary.

DIVISION 3 OF the Allianz Football League is top-heavy with Leinster teams this year.

Laois, Longford, Offaly and O’Byrne Cup finalists Louth will all harbour hopes of gaining promotion to Division 2.

But in an extremely competitive group, last year’s All-Ireland semi-finalists Tipperary, Antrim, Sligo and Kieran McGeeney’s Armagh will all hope to have their say.

Tipperary are current favourites with the bookies to win the divisional crown outright following their 2016 heroics, with Armagh following hot on their heels in the pre-season betting.

Two teams will also drop to Division 4 and the prospect of dog-eat-dog fare looms large.

There are some tasty fixtures down for decision, including Tipperary’s visit to Laois later in the month, when they will come up against former manager Peter Creedon, who’s now in charge of the O’Moore County.
