Cavan tasted victory while Monaghan suffered defeat.

Aisling Gilsenan scored a late winner for Cavan, her free earned the Breffni women a 2-8 to 3-4 win against Westmeath.

Gilsenan trailed 1-0 to 1-2 at half-time but Cavan turned things around to lead by two points seven minutes from time.

Westmeath fought back to level the game before Gilsenan scored the winner right at the death.


Armagh were too strong for Monaghan in Lidl ladies football league division two winning 1-13 to 1-3 at Middletown.

The Orchard county’s goal arrived courtesy of a lobbed effort from Alex Clarke while Chloe McBride found the net for Monaghan. Both were scored inside the opening quarter.

Elsewhere, Laois hung on for a 3-8 to 3-7 win against Tyrone in a thriller while Tipperary’s rock solid defence helped them to edge a 0-6 to 0-4 victory over Roscommon.


Kerry maintained their perfect start to division one with victory over Donegal in Tralee on Saturday.

The Kingdom were made to work hard for their 2-10 to 1-11 victory with Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh and Susanne White both scoring 1-8 for their respective sides.

The hosts held a narrow 0-8 to 1-3 advantage at half-time in Austin Stack Park and Síofra O’Shea’s second half goal was another crucial score as Kerry held on.


Elsewhere, on Sunday, Waterford got their first win of the campaign when they held off Mayo to secure a 2-9 to 0-13 success in Dungarvan.
