Limerick travel to play Laois in Allianz Football League Division 3 in Portlaoise this evening at 7pm
Division 3 is a gift that keeps on giving when you think that one or more teams might bolt clear. That could be said of Limerick and Westmeath who looked good early on. Then Limerick lost to Louth, Westmeath suffering defeats on the spin against the Wee County and Longford. And then last weekend the Lake County bounced back when defeating Limerick. That has left a situation where Antrim and now Louth top the standings. Both meet in Ardee on Sunday, with a Divison 2 ticket very much within grasp for the winner.
The outcome of Laois v Limerick and Westmeath v Fermanagh encounters should make things a little clearer. The unpredictability of this section so far leaves one less inclined to make hard predictions.
Winless Wicklow do appear doomed, however but the scrap to avoid joining them in slipping out of the division will be keenly contested.
Longford occupy that unwanted position at the moment, though the visit of the Garden County could well move them onto five points – and also confirm Wicklow’s relegation
