A win and a narrow defeat in this week’s Inter County Results
Week Ending Sunday, February 10th 2019
We didn’t get completely blown away by the wind and rain this weekend. And we go to enjoy two massive games. Mixed fortunes but great quality performances from both Dublin teams involved. Here’s a catch up.
Allianz National Football League Division 1
Kerry 1-18 Dublin 2-14
Austin Stack Park, Tralee
Despite a late push from Jim Gavin’s Dublin panel tonight, it was Kerry who came away with the spoils in a fixture that was always going to be entertaining. The men from the Kingdom dominated huge sections of the game, and Dublin will rue some late mistakes that could have changed the outcome of the game.
That said Dublin still showed they can dig deep coming from five down with 6 minutes left in the match to tie the game deep into additional time.
But it was ultimately Peter Crowley’s fisted score with less than 2 minutes to play that sealed the win for the home side. Dublin also had to contend with losing Michael Fitzsimons to a second yellow card in the second half reducing them to 14 men.
Lidl National Football League Division 1
Tipperary 2-08 Dublin 6-09
Ardfinnan GAA, Clonmel
Mick Bohan’s Dublin got the defence of their Lidl National Football League Division 1 title back on track this afternoon with a comprehensive win over Tipperary in Ardfinnan.
Goals were the order of the day for the Sky Blues as they raised six green flags – three in each half – with two each for Siobhan Killeen and Lyndsey Davey in an emphatic Dublin performance.
Tipperary played their part in an entertaining game but Dublin’s superior movement and firepower were the telling factors by the full-time whistle.
Make sure to stay tuned next week for more action. There’s another installment for the Dublin Senior Hurlers in this years Allianz National Hurling League. Dublin’s Senior Camogie panel are in Littlewoods National League action. The Intermediate Camogie panel get their Littlewoods Division 2 campaign up and running. And also Dublin’s minor Ladies Football panel start their Leinster Championship.
