    Philip Reid here and I’ll be keeping you up to date with all the Gaelic Games action from around the country in this second series of matches in the Allianz Leagues.

    Some familiarity already developing at the business end of Division One in football with Dublin and Kerry – who met in last year’s final – making it two wins from two with their successes on Saturday night, so they can relax for the afternoon and see what develops elsewhere and who will likely emerge as their main rivals.

    Kerry unveiled their new away jerseys on their travels to Mayo. Paul Galvin has made quite a name for himself as a fashion designer since moving on from wearing the Kerry jersey and he was responsible for the new gold-coloured geansaí which the lads – including a new crop of teenaged stars – wore in defeating Mayo in Castlebar.

    Keith Duggan’s report on the new kids on the block tells the tale:

    Dublin – reduced to 14 men for the majority of the second-half after Niall Scully picked up two yellow cards – were also impressive in bring their roadshow to Omagh. In front of almost 10,000 spectators, including a sizeable travelling contingent, the All-Ireland champions were comfortable winners: Seán Moran was there.....

    After losing out to Dublin at Croke Park last week, Kildare will be aiming to collect their first points of the campaign when playing host to Monaghan in Newbridge. One of the main players for the Lilywhites is Kevin Feely and Malachy Clerkin interviewed the midfielder ......

    On the hurling front, Davy Fitzgerald’s in-form Wexford team – with a Walsh Cup collected and an away win over Waterford in their first league match – will host Cork while Kilkenny face Clare. Should be close and interesting......

    Interesting scoreline so far from the Westmeath-Kildare match in the Allianz Hurling League Division 2A. After 54 minutes it is Westmeath 1-17 to --- wait for it ---- 2-10. Good game by all accoutns.

  • 13:47
  • 13:54
    There'll be one change on the Meath team for their Division Two match against Clare in Navan. Bryan McMahon is in for Seán Tobin. Both teams are looking for a first win, having drawn their opening games last Sunday.
  • 13:55
    And a change on the Clare team, with Aaron Fitzgerald coming in fro Alan Sweeney at centre-back.
  • 13:56
    Good start from Cork footballers in their Division Two trip to Down: the Rebels are leading 0-5 to 0-1 after 13 minutes.
  • 14:00
    Cork hurlers standing shoulder-to-shoulder for the national anthem   for their visit to Wexford.....both teams look up for this one after their opening round wins.
  • 14:06
    Early minutes yet in the Wexford-Cork game but first blood to Davy's point up after five minutes at a packed Innovate Wexford Park.
  • 14:08
    Conor Lehane's goaaaal for Cork puts the Rebels ahead ...... the home crowd won't like that. Neither will Davy.
  • 14:09
    Shane O'Donnell is a good man for a goal....and he's off and running for Clare. The Banner 1-2 to 0-2 ahead on The Cats
  • 14:10
    Dublin ladies produced some second-half performance to beat Westmeath in the Lidl NFL Division One shock, so.
  • 14:14
    There was a delay to the throw-in in Newry for the Down-Cork Division Two football game.....after a slow start, Down are finding their feet. Cork lead 0-7 to 0-5 approaching the break.
  • 14:19
    The Pat Gilroy effect looks like it could be a slow burning process with Dublin hurlers (minus the Cuala contingent in the league). The Dubs trail Antrim by 0-4 to 0-3 in Belfast
  • 14:20
    Clare rip-roaring their way clear of The Cats.....2-7 to 0-2. Yep, not a mistake. 2-7 for Clare to ..... 0-2 for Kilkenny!!!!
  • 14:21
    I'll tell you....if there was a transfer market in hurling, I'd have Lee Chin top of the list. Another point for the Wexfordman, although his team trail by a goal, 1-5 to Cork and 0-5 to the Slaneysiders after 20 minutes.
  • 14:22
    Sinead Aherne scored 1-6 for All-Ireland champions Dublin in their Lidl NFL 1 win over Westmeath. Dubs staged a great comeback in that one.
  • 14:23
    Kilkenny back in it.....Billy Sheehan's goal closes the gap. Clare 2-8, Kilkenny 1-2.
  • 14:24
    Paul Ryan free for Dublin has levelled matters - 0-6 apiece - in their match with Antrim in Belfast.
  • 14:26
    Lee Chin is on fire for Wexford......magical point to reduce matters to a two point game. Cork lead 1-6 to 0-7. Chin has scored five points for Wexford.
  • 14:29
    The late throw-in in Division One of the football league features Donegal - who lost narrowly on their travels to Kerry last week - facing Galway. That will get under way shortly.
  • 14:31
    The standard of free-taking in hurling is simply mindboggling...Patrick Horgan puts Cork 1-7 to 0-7 up on Wexford.
  • 14:31
    Paul Cribbin making quite a mark for the Lilywhites in their tight match with Monaghan. A second point for Cribbin. It's 0-5 apiece close to the half-hour mark.
  • 14:32
    And a Conor McCarthy goal has given Monaghan the edge, 1-5 to 0-5 against the Lilywhites.
  • 14:37
  • 14:40
    Half-time at Wexford Park....and it is the visiting Rebels who hold a two point lead. All to play for.
  • 14:42
    Monaghan out to make amends for letting it slip against mayo a week ago.....they lead 1-6 to 0-5 at half-time on their visit to Newbridge. Kildare's Paul Cribbin has been black carded.
  • 14:43
    Meath leading 0-6 to 0-4 over Clare in their Division Two football match in Pairc Tailteann. The old stadium is due to get a €20 million facelift which will transform it, floodlights et al.
  • 14:44
    Danny Sutcliffe's return to the Dublin hurling fold is working. He's just put the Dubs 0-14 to 0-8 up over Antrim at Corrigan Park.
  • 14:45
    Clare have the upperhand over Kilkenny at half-time......2-12 to 1-7. Still, not the runaway it had seemed like earler on when Clare could do no wrong.
  • 14:46
    Offaly hurlers coming back down to earth after their brilliant display in beating Dublin at Croke Park last week.....Limerick very much in control this week.
  • 14:49
    Galway continuing their strong start on their return to Division One. The Tribesmen are leading Donegal 1-3 to 0-3 midway through the first-half. Eamonn Brannigan got the Galway goal.
  • 14:52
  • 14:57
    Conor Lehane is proving to be Cork's main man so far......a fine point from the centre-half forward gets the Leesiders off the mark in the second-half: Cork 1-10, Wexford 0-10.
  • 14:59
    Davy Fitzgerald looks cold....hands in pockets on the sideline. Close to the action. Wexford chasing the game, trailing by two points - 0-12 to 1-11 - after 40 minutes. Great crowd.
  • 15:01
    What do they feed them in Wexford? Monster, monster point from Wexford goalkeeper Mark Fanning. Just one point in it now.

  • 15:07
    They're like super glue in Wexford.....sides are level: Wexford 0-14, Cork 1-11. A great game, great advertisement for the league.
  • 15:09
    Rory Gallagher making quite the impact on his move to Fermanagh....they lead Offaly by 2-6 to 0-4 at half-time in their Division 3 clash at Brewster Park.
  • 15:10
    Some potentially costly wides from Wexford....that';s 10 wides (to Cork's five) so far in the game.
  • 15:10
    Great run by Lee Chin and pass to Paul Morris who points to put Wexford a point up on Cork.
  • 15:11

  • 15:13
    Meath running wild in Navan....lead Clare 0-13 to 0-5.
  • 15:13

  • 15:14
    Dublin hurlers are ahead 0-19 to 0-14 on their trip to Corrigan Park to face Antrim....55 minutes in.
  • 15:16
    You'd swear it was the middle of summer. Some great hurling in Innovate Park.....superb point from Kevin Foley puts Wexford 0-16 to 1-11 up on Cork. Davy might even smile at some point.
  • 15:17
    Cork 1-13 Down 0-10 at full-time in Newry. Red card flashed to Down's Connaire Harrison at the final whistle.
  • 15:19
    Conor McManus has steadied Mongahan's nerves a little, pointed free to put them two points ahead against Kildare
  • 15:20
    Ten minutes to go in Innovate Park....and Wexford lead 0-16 to 1-12. Oh, this is league hurling at its best.
  • 15:21
    Soft (ish) free to Cork. Davy Fitz not happy with that decision.....Conor Lehane's free is over and they're level.
  • 15:23
    Wexford goalkeeper Mark Fanning overplaying the ball out, loses it, Cork a point up. 1-14 to 0-16.

    Monaghan's Jack McCarron has been blackcarded.....
  • 15:30
    Jack Guiney's long range free has given Wexford a two point lead heading into injury time ....Wexford 0-19 to Cork's 1-14
  • 15:32
    Harry Kehoe's point has edged Wexford further ahead....0-20 to 1.14. What a terrific game. IN FEBRUARY.....
  • 15:34
    Wexford, Wexford, Wexford.....what a great point from Diarmuid O'Keeffe. That's it all over now. Wexford 0-21 to Cork's 1-14.
    Smile, Davy, smile!!!
  • 15:35
    Some great performances from Wexford.....Aidan Nolan was immense, so too Lee Chin. Statement of intent from Wexford. Men on a mission.
    Davy Fitz might even be happy!
  • 15:38
    Clare have beaten The Cats 2-18 to 1-18.....great fightback from Kilkenny but time ran out.

  • 16:18

    So, early signs from the Allianz Football League Division One are that Dublin and Kerry have hit the ground running with two wins from two games......but so too have Galway. The Tribesmen followed up ann impressive opening day win over Tyrone and a hard-fought one point victory over Donegal in Letterkenny. Neve r easy to go into the lion's den and walk away with the points, which means there is substance to Galway's arrival as genuine contenders in Division One.

    The Dubs, Kerry and Galway top the table with four points . . . . and Kildare and Tyrone are pointless and holding up Division One and in relegation fights already.


    In Division Two, Meath's second-half performance was certainly noteworthy in comprehensively beating Clare at Pairc Tailteann.....but the most notable display of all was probably Roscommon's figthback to overcome Tipperary.

  • 16:21

    A couple of humdingers in Allianz Hurling Division 1A, with Wexford again showing their improvement under Davy Fitzgerald. Wexford won a cracker against Cork, while Clare - who threatened to run away with their game - had to fight to the very end to finally get the better of Kilkenny.

    Wexford's intensity levels were superb, with Lee Chin and Aidan Nolan playing brilliantly to inspire the home side to victory.


    In Division 1B, Pat Gilroy got his first taste of victory with a last gasp win for the Dubs away to Antrim. And Limerick brought Offaly back to earth with a big win in Tullamore.
