Of the three teams who were relegated from AFL4 last year, the St Finians (S) team were probably the strongest. Na Fianna 3rds had a very poor season, but with their numbers and quality throughout the club, I’d expect them to go well. Monica’s will need a couple of new players to compete.

Both TD teams started off very well last year. They need to ensure that one of those teams gets out of that division this year. 2 teams in the same division looked to have cost them in the second half of the season last year.

BSJ gave us a hammering in the championship last April, and if they have anything like that side out for most of the year, they should be in the running.

Is that cualas 3rd team?

Yeah

BSJ are in Div 4 - They bet Plunkets in the playoff in 2019.

Are Monica’s struggling now and dropping down the leagues or have they some youth coming through?

who we all looking at for favorites to get promoted and relegated?

Promoted
TD1
Plunketts
Crumlin

Relegated
Brendans
Ballymun

hard to know but just going on what i seen last year

Promotion

Plunketts
Davis (1)
Monicas

Relegation
Ballymun
Finians

Interested to hear why you think Brendans would be relegated? Thought they had a great season last year getting to championship final in Junior 1 and had a decent league season too. I think 1 more win would’ve brought them into the promotion playoffs

Ye agree they will be top half. Not sure if they have much turnover of players coming and going or have a settled bunch.

What makes you think that Finians would go down again but Monicas go up? Did they not finish above them in Div 4 last year?

here is the master list, fixture dates, gradings etc.

Both CC and Brendan’s moved into the intermediate football championship.

I was about to ask the same question too. We played them in a challenge match last weekend and they’re very organised side have a big panel too. I doubt they’ll be relegated.

What way are you able to get a full divisions fixtures? When I filter to adult leagues it’s bringing me to a dead end. Looking for div 7
