Longford beat Louth by two points last Sunday, while their opponents Laois had the weekend off. This one should be really tight at Glennon Bros Pearse Park. I’m going for a fresher Laois side to just survive this test and win away in this one.
This is a proper game of football in Connacht, and Roscommon beat Mayo at this stage last season by a point. Mayo have been impressive in the National League over the last few weeks and have got a lot of new players into the side. They also had seven new debutants against Leitrim in the Connacht quarter-final last weekend.
Roscommon have done well since the intercounty restart, picking up two win and gaining promotion back to Division 1. This is going to be a right battle at Dr Hyde Park. However, even though Mayo were relegated in their last League game to Division 2, I reckon they are a good bet to win here and go on to win Connacht.
This is probably the Munster final, with all due respect to the rest of the counties in the province. But, there is no back door for the loser of this and that should make it very competitive at Pairc Ui Chaoimh. Kerry are National League Division 1 champions, while Cork were Division 3 winners and there’s a bit of a gap in quality between those two tiers.
However, Cork are a bit better than a Division 3 team and they went through their League campaign with a 100 per cent record. Kerry for their part, are probably the greatest threat to Dublin’s quest to retain the All-Ireland and they are justifiable heavy favourites to win this game.
I believe this Kingdom outfit are even better than last year and they are well capable of beating the (-5) handicap here. Cork will make a game of it for sure, but Peter Keane’s men should pull away in the end.
