Boys in blue off to a flyer

The Dublin footballers have made a blistering start to their division one campaign with four wins from four matches.

It started under the lights at Croke Park when they beat Kildare after a superb second half performance by the Dubs. They finished comfortable seven-point winners in the end. They followed this up with a win away to Tyrone before dismantling Donegal at Croker by five points.

Next, it was a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland final in Castlebar where Mayo hosted the boys in blue. While the men from the west put up a spirited performance, ultimately, they went down by four points to Dublin.

It has been an impressive start to the league for Dublin and they will be hoping to go one better than last year after being beaten by Kerry in the division one final. Their remaining fixtures see them play Kerry at home before going to Pearse Stadium to face Galway and the campaign concludes with a game against Monaghan at Croke Park. They currently lead the division with Galway in second and Monaghan in third. At the other end of the table, Mayo and Kildare currently occupy the relegation places.

Across the other three divisions, Cavan lead the division two table with three wins while Armagh and Fermanagh both have 100% records in division three. It’s also tight at the top of Division four with just two points separating the top three teams – Laois, Carlow and Antrim. Kildare in Division one, Louth in division two and Wexford and Offaly in division three are the four teams across all divisions yet to pick up a point so far.
