Hurling saves the weekend as only one football game gets any air time

Monaghan vs Dublin is the only live football game on TV.

It's the very last weekend of a brilliant National Football League campaign, but for reasons unknown, only one game is actually on TV.

It is of course a very important game, as Monaghan take on Dublin in a relegation battle that could potentially see the Dub's drop down to Division Two, a prospect that was unthinkable mere months ago.

After picking up some steam against Tyrone and then Donegal, the Boys in Blue are starting to look like their old selves again, but the Farney men have been in this situation before.

Just last season they found themselves in a relegation play-off against Galway, and managed to come out the other end, so they will be feeling confident that they can do it again.

The other games, although equally as important, are not being televised, but thankfully we have plenty of hurling action to keep us occupied.

Antrim play Offaly in a Division One relegation play-off as the Saffrons hope to bounce back from a disappoint couple of weeks, but tonight's game is the pick of the bunch.

Last year's All-Ireland finalists Cork, take on the prestigious Kilkenny in the league semi-final, and with the good weather to boost, it promises to be a doozy of game.
