Monaghan and Cavan both their LIDL National football league division two campaigns underway with meetings against Wexford and Kerry.
Cavan get their campaign underway when they meet Kerry in the Denn Gas, Crosskeys at 12 noon on Sunday.
Cavan reached the Division 2 semi-finals last year but lost out to eventual champions Waterford.
In a competitive Division 2, reaching the Final this time would be a huge achievement for the Breffni girls, who have a tough start at home to Kerry.
The Kingdom will be aiming to bounce back to the top flight at the second attempt, having lost out to Waterford in last year’s Division 2 Final.
Monaghan face a long trip south to St Patrick’s Park, Enniscorthy for their meeting with Wexford which gets underway at two o’clock.
Monaghan’s long run in the top flight came to an end last year when they suffered relegation.
But hopes are high that the county can bounce back, and reaching an All-Ireland Minor A Final last year suggest that there is emerging talent to harness.
Wexford did more than enough to stay up last year, and they’ll aim to consolidate again.
