The folly of mis-matches in the Lidl Ladies National Football League was further highlighted when already relegated Tyrone made the long haul to Kerry only to be beaten by 7-22 to 0-8.

To date in the different divisions, lop-sided scores have detracted somewhat from the competition and an added problem was encountered when the important Cork v Armagh match in Division One was postponed.

Flooding in the Cork area meant that the game has had to be re-arranged for next weekend when Ronan Clarke's Armagh side will bid to secure their place in the Division One semi-finals.

But their camogie counterparts stepped up to the mark.

They beat Dublin by 1-14 to 2-10 with Ciara McSorley scoring 1-6 in what was a significant victory while Collette Donnelly was also prominent. Armagh will now meet Roscommon, who beat Kerry, in the Division Three final on April 30.

Donegal were also in form and their 2-7 to 1-2 win over Cavan keeps them in the frame.

Meanwhile, it has not been confirmed if the Tyrone and Donegal county boards have lodged appeals against the €2,000 fines handed down by the Central Competitions Control Committee following the melee that took place following Donegal's win over the Red Hands in the Ulster U21 football semi-final.

Donegal team manager Declan Bonner has been hit with a 24-week ban arising from comments he is alleged to have made to referee Barry Cassidy after the game. During the tie, Cassidy sent off two Donegal players.

Monaghan went on to become Ulster U21 champions and their All-Ireland semi-final against Cork has been set for O'Connor Park, Tullamore next Saturday.
