In Division One, Ulster's sole representative Derry fell to their third consecutive defeat of the campaign and have yet to pick up any points following a heavy defeat to Limerick, 1-8 to 2-15.

Not even the best efforts of Katie McAnenly with 1-3 could prevent the Oak Leaf girls falling.

It was a similar story for managerless Antrim who were comprehensively beaten by Westmeath, 3-14 to 1-8.

Niamh Mallon with nine points, could not stop Down falling to defeat to Laois, 3-12 to 0-13.

Cavan fell to another humiliating defeat, registering a single point in response to Dublin's 4-21 in Division Three.

Armagh got the better of Kerry 2-9 to 0-6. Ciara Donnelly finished top scorer with 1-5.

Saturday's Ard-Chomhairle meeting decreed that the 'mark' as voted on in February's annual Congress in Carlow, will not take effect until January 1, 2017. This leaves this summer's football Championship with unchanged rules. An under-17 Championship will also be introduced for 2017. The semi-finals of the Allianz football leagues will be discontinued from 2017.
