Divsion 1 is turning into a tight battle with Donegal, Dublin and Kerry all sitting on 3 points with Monaghan, Tyrone and Galway on 2.

Mayo have the 1 point to their name while Meath are still awaiting their first points of the campaign and even at this early stage seem destined for a return back to Division 2

That win for Monaghan over Tyrone yesterday in Castleblayney now sees them in 4th spot by virtue of the better scoring difference

A stiff breeze in the 2nd half aided Monaghan in their victory and manager Seamus McEleaney remarked they took advantage of that it

Next up for Monaghan is a trip to Croke park on Saturday evening to face Dublin
