    Shows the value of the Joe McDonagh Cup, too - Kerry and Westmeath hoping to make similar progress this season.

    Yes, that's a hurling final score - incredible result by the Leinster men. Elsewhere, Limerick continue where they left off last year by beating Tipp and Clare defeated Kilkenny.

    In football, Dublin swiftly overcame their "crisis", comfortably defeating Galway, while Kerry secured a hard-fought, but crucial, victory in Cavan, and Mayo are surprisingly comfortable against Tyrone.

    Didn't see that Offaly result, they have gone backwards so badly in both codes from the 80s and 90s when they were one of the top dual counties.

    And given the Monaghan win last year came when the Dubs had already qualified for the final, it's their first meaningful defeat since the 2017 League final. Not the most free-flowing game in Killarney, but the Kerry backs were far better organised than last year, and Dara Moynihan could well be this year's breakthrough star.

    As for the hurling, Limerick eventually prevailed in a fiery encounter in Wexford, Kilkenny eventually eased past Cork at home, and Offaly's woes were brutally exposed by a 27-point shellacking at the hands of Waterford.

    NHL Division 1A:

    Clare
    Cork
    Kilkenny
    Limerick
    Tipperary
    Wexford

    Clare appear to be performing well in pre-season, winning the Munster League, but Limerick abstained from the competition, as did Tipp. Wexford also impressed in Leinster, and will be keen on a top two finish.

    Division 1B:

    Carlow
    Dublin
    Galway
    Laois
    Offaly
    Waterford

    In a rather weak section, Galway should be clear favourites, with Waterford close behind. Carlow, Laois and Offaly all play in the Joe McDonagh Cup, but of the three, Offaly may well be the side ultimately relegated.

    ​​​​​​Division Three:

    Carlow
    Down
    Laois
    Longford
    Louth
    Offaly
    Sligo
    Westmeath

    Longford would be contenders, but for club championship matches - Down and Laois should be promoted, with Louth and Offaly falling to the basement.

    Division Four:

    Antrim
    Derry
    Leitrim
    Limerick
    London
    Waterford
    Wexford
    Wicklow

    Derry should win the division comfortably, with Antrim and Wexford battling for second.

    Dublin's Drive for Five? GAA 2019

    The inter-county year cranks into full gear once more this Saturday, with the return of the National Football and Hurling Leagues - as ever, Dublin begin as unassailable favourites in the former competition, with Tyrone and Galway seemingly best placed to challenge for springtime honours. Mayo remain in transition, while Kerry will use the competition for experimentation, under new boss Peter Keane.

    As for hurling, Limerick's September success stunned neutrals, while Galway, Cork and Wexford will all be in the mix for honours.

    NFL Division One:

    Cavan
    Dublin
    Galway
    Kerry
    Mayo
    Monaghan
    Roscommon
    Tyrone

    Cavan and Roscommon were promoted last spring, and both appear favourites for a swift return to Division Two, though Kerry may be in danger due to the absence of players in club duty.

    Division Two:

    Armagh
    Clare
    Cork
    Donegal
    Fermanagh
    Kildare
    Meath
    Tipperary


    ​​​Fermanagh and Clare are likeliest to be relegated, and while Donegal and Kildare should go up, Armagh could spring a surprise.
