Four games over Saturday and Sunday in Football, Ladies Football and Camogie in Weekly Inter County Fixtures
Week Ending Sunday, March 15th 2020
Plenty more action for Dublin teams in the weekly inter County fixtures. And hopefully we won’t see too much effect with the continuing Coronavirus situation. Ladies Football and Camogie on Saturday followed by more Ladies Football and Senior Mens Football on Sunday. Here’s all you need to know.
Waterford v Dublin
All Ireland Minor Camogie Championship
Saturday, March 14th. 2:00pm
With another win under their belts last weekend against Laois, the Dublin Minor Camogie panel hit the road again this weekend. Next up is Waterford and the girls from the Deise County come into this game after a 1-19 to 0-05 defeat at the hands of Cork last weekend.
Dublin lead Group 2 with two consecutive wins. An opening round win over reigning champions Cork in Bray was followed by their 1-10 to 2-02 victory over Laois in Clonad last Saturday. Waterford win their opener against Wexford by two points before losing the Cork last weekend. Waterford IT will pose as the venue for this game with a 2:00pm throw in.
Westmeath v Dublin
Leinster U16 Ladies Football Championship
Saturday, March 14th. 2:00pm
It’s Round 2 of the Leinster U16 Ladies Football Championship, and Dublin will be still buzzing after their 2-17 to 0-00 victory over Wexford last weekend. And while the weather last weekend was far from perfect, credit goes to both sides for playing the fixture.
Westmeath suffered a 5-08 to 1-08 defeat at the hands of neighbours Meath and will look to improve. Dublin go in search of the provincial title after losing to Meath in last year’s Final. A win on Saturday will strengthen their journey further.
Dublin v Kildare
Leinster U18 Ladies Football Championship
Sunday, March 15th. 2:00pm
After a one point victory over Meath in Round 1, the Dublin U18 Ladies Football panel are back in action this weekend. And with Parnell Park as the backdrop for this fixture they’ll welcome Kildare for their home tie.
When these sides met in last year’s competition it was Kildare who came away the victors on a 3-15 to 1-09 scoreline at Hawkfield GAA in Newbridge. Dublin will be hoping Sunday is not a repeat of that scoreline.
Dublin v Meath
Allianz National Football League
Sunday, March 15th. 3:15pm
At a later than originally scheduled throw in time of 3:15pm, Dessie Farrell will take charge of the Dublin Senior Footballers again for their next National League encounter with old rivals Meath. And while there hasn’t been a League game between these two sides in quite some time, there have been some titanic battles.
After their defeat to Tyrone in the last Round Dublin find themselves sitting fourth in the Division 1 table. And that’s thanks in part to dropped points in drawn games against Kerry and Monaghan in previous rounds. With two games to go they’ll be aiming for wins in both to be in with a chance of reaching the League decider.
For Meath, they’re yet to get of the mark as newly a promoted Division 1 side. They’ve suffered defeats by Tyrone, Donegal, Mayo, Kerry and Galway and face relegation. it doesn’t look good for the royals, but they won’t go down without a fight.
